Overall condition and additional equipment are the main factors affecting the price of a used Branson tractor. Hours of operation are less important, because well-treated tractors can be in good shape after several years of work. Tractors without any attachments can cost from $10,000 to $35,000.
Most usual additional options are loader and backhoe, which can each add up to $1,500 to overall price. Weathered tires can seriously affect the price of the tractor, because buying new ones may cost up to $15,000. Also, bulging tires and rust are signs that the vehicle was kept in improper conditions. This is a reason for a discount because it can seriously affect the tractor's performance.
