I have been told that they listed for around 7,200 i am getting prices between 5,995 and 6,500 what do you all think would be a fair price to get one of these for. john

If you can get one for$6000.00 or less ,you are doing great.I bought my agco918 new in 99 and paid $5700.00 + tax with a total of $6000.00.Tractor retailed for $7200.00 as stated and i would spend it all over again if they were still made.I have everything but a hr meter which i should have spent $50.00 and got it.Buy one if you can get It for $6000.00 or less.Agco918 chad e shafer

thanks chad the guy in my area wants 6,600 i am sure i can haggle a bit just debating if i should go new or pick up another wreck and rebuild it LOL It sure would be nice to own one new withought worrying about blowing a 30+ year old hydro or engine if you use it hard. thanks for your imput. john

John, Here's a link to the "old" Simplicity Sovereign page. The links to images are no longer active, but the MSRP still appears > http://www.simplicitymfg.com/prodct/sov.htm I usually don't get involved in "value" questions, but why are you assuming your only choices are a new $6000 machine or a 30 year old "wreck"? How about a late model used Sovereign priced somewhere in between?

I agree with Herb,we sold a 1995 sovereign for a $1000 with a blown engine.The tractor was very clean and for another grand (approx.)you could slap another engine in it.Pretty cheap for a late model tractor.

I would try chipping him down to about $5500 and I think he would still make a few bucks for himself. Having that kind of inventory sitting around for a couple of years would want me to unload it so I could invest those dollars in some newer product. BLT

thanks al, blt, dogman,ken i appreciate all your imput and insight and while spending the 6k is at the upper end of my budjet i just didnt think the prices of late model sovereign class machines has fallen into the "few thousand dollar range" As strange as it sounds aside from saving $$$ i would enjoy getting a tractor that needs fixing up, part of the love of these "new and old" machines is fixing them up and giving them a new home :) ps how far is carlisle PA from boston charlie ;) thanks all john

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
