Values are highly subjective. I can give you my opinion but that is just an opinion that is based upon me being a collector and wanting to add a 190 to my fleet.

I think that I would try to beat him up on the price as much as possible but at the end of the struggle, the package would be going home with me in my trailer. Condition to me is important, as is how complete the tractor is and how "untouched" by foolish hands as well. I'd value the basic tractor at $500.00 POSSIBLY. That value would be subject to my in-person inspection but if I liked what a saw, then I'd stick with that value. The other interesting piece is the sickle bar mower. Those often bring $200.00 on e-Bay if they are complete, not rusted solid, bent up or have broken parts.

It's an attachment I'd love to have mounted on a show tractor. The rest of the stuff has value but too me, not much. I might refurbish some of it and sell it locally if I thought I could make a buck on it.

The unanswered question here is why you are looking at this package. I don't consider anything built prior to 1971 as being a viable "work tractor" . Others are free to disagree but that fact remains that parts for those tractors are getting a bit tougher to come by as are the attachments.

But if you are looking for a nice restoration project to produce a show/parade tractor, then that one's a good choice.

It would be a project not a worker. Nice one to have in the collection.

Even though it isn't best suited for a work tractor, I think it would be a shame and very disrespectful to relegate this tractor to nothing more than a "yard ornament"

I would have a hard time doing that to any piece of old iron.
