Looking for advise on a 1953 Jubilee I'm looking at.
Has fairly new rear tires, seller says it runs well and hydraulics work well.
Front tires are worn and sheet metal is average.
Seller says it won't move, local tractor dealer diagnosed it as bad pinion gear.
Seller wants $1500, which I feel is way to high, others in full working condition selling in my area for $2000-2500 in similar condition.
I told him I would be interested at half his listing price, $750
Did I make a reasonable offer?

I have a 9n currently but would like the Jubilee for brush hogging since it has more power, the 4 speed transmission and live hydraulics. Am I correct that the Jubilee is a better brush hog tractor?

Thanks in advance!
