    A fellow down the road from me is selling his Mitsubishi 372 model tractor for $2500. It has 149 hours, is a bit rusty from being stored outside under a tarp, and comes with a bush hog and road grader attachment.

    Are Mitsu 372 considered good small tractors? Is his price reasonable?

    Try to locate Machinerylink Tools and Resources Equipment Evaluation it took me awhile to locate but is helpful. They give different years for this tractor which influences price, $2280 - $2900. Hope it helps.

    While the price seems reasonable, do you have a dealer support network from which to get parts such as filters and actual repairs? Without support the tractor is of little value in my opinion.

    Where I live the tractor would be virtually worthless---as I didn't even know Mitsubishi made a tractor. No dealer support here or potential resale for the same reason.

    Try http://www.tractorbynet.com

    They have an area that covers Mitsubishi tractors. You might want to read about gray market tractors too.
