a contract for
a used John Deere tractor
WM. Nobbe & Company, Steeleville, IL
The tractor is a John Deere model 7420 with an infinite variable transmission. Its primary use will be to pull an aerator for compost turning at the research composting site. The infinite transmission in the 7420 is a requirement for operating the aerator at the required slow speed in order to receive maximum rotation of the leaves, yard waste, and farm animal waste.
This purchase includes the trade-in of a John Deere model 6240 utility tractor. The trade-in allowance for this used piece of equipment is $38,000.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the
compatibility of equipment, accessories, replacement parts, or service is a paramount consideration.
