John Deere 450 B

Hey guys hows it going?

I was just wondering if any one know the weight of a JOHN DEERE 450 B?

My dad is looking into buying one, I dont have a pic of the one he is thinking about getting yet, but i am going to go by there this week and take some pics of it and the trailer.


Im just wondering if my hitch can handle pulling a tractor that size? Its a shelton class five.





*****here is a pic of one that i got off of ebay for now till i get pics of the actual one he is looking at getting......







what are your thoughts? any info is appreciated.

thanks justin

here are pics that i took of it today...

this is the trailer... It has been sitting for a while, so it needs new wood, tires, brakes.....










The tractor itself has been sitting a while too, it def needs new hoses and all fluids changed...







and yes it is a backhoe as well...

Should be ok, make sure from sitting the cylinders aren pitted w/rust. Look a tthe tracks, for a farm machine they are probably ok but if the pins cant be turned and are bad, they are SUPER EXPENSIVE to replace.

A TLB is generally somewhere 15k#, so that crawler would probably be closer to 20k with the hoe.

Should pull it OK, but be careful where you place it on the trailer.
