I found a 1979 Case 646 loader for sale. I have not seen it yet but it has been stored indoors, has a weight box, presumably a Cat 0 hitch. I believe it has been re-powered to a larger Onan Performer. It has tire chains but no other attachments. How much should I expect to pay for this unit? Thanks.

Well according to the 2004 Grounds Maintenance Equipment Blue Book. A 1979 Case 646 in excellent Condition High value is worth $1,265 I could see paying up to $2,000 or more depending on condition.

These tractors are in big demand. If you see it go for under 2 grand grab it. Most I have looked at have been around 2500. If your buying, quote the blue book, but for selling you could get much more.


BTW still looking for a nicely priced one myself. :D

Thanks for your help

He was asking $2500 so you were spot on there. We agreed on $2200. No 3-pt or new engine, but it has new tires and seems to be sound and well-maintained. It's going to come in very handy when mulching and planting season gets here.

Thanks again.

From looking at the pictures it looks kinda just like a GT with a loader on it. It is much more the that. It was made just for loader use, and they are a tough little bugger. Dont see them around much these days. With so many styles of compact tractors these days, and the high cost of building the Ingersoll loaders, most people go for the compacts. Still a huge damand for the old ones though. Makes it good if your selling, but bad if your buying.
