Low-Price Tractor Parts"We sell new replacement parts that are hard to find used at salvage yards," says Jeff Ruprecht, vice president of Paynesville Tractor Parts, a distributor and manufacturer of low-price remanufactured tractor parts.
Ruprecht says that in the past two years interest in new replacement parts has sky-rocketed. "These are the parts that are most likely to fail. Because the same parts fail so often, they just aren't available in salvage yards and they're extremely expensive if you buy them from the original manufacturer. All of our replacement parts meet or beat the original specs."
The company makes some of the parts it sells and distributes replacement parts from other manufacturers. Following are examples of replacement parts and their prices.
Front-end casting for a Deere 4020. "If you went to Deere you'd pay $700. Our replacement front-end sells for $450 and it's 50 lbs. heavier than Deere's," says Ruprecht.
IH Torsion Tube for 1056, 1256, 1456, and 1466 tractors. "This is a common wear-out part. Case/IH charges $689. Our price is $375."
Manifold for Deere 60, 620 and 630 tractors. "This is the most popular manifold we sell. Deere sells it for $266. We sell ours for $145."
Rear-end ring gear and pinion in Case 930, 970, 1030, and 1070 tractors. "Case price is $1,627. Our price $875."
Paynesville also sells special accessories for older tractors. One example is an add-on 3-pt. hitch for Allis Chalmers D17, WD, and WD45 tractors. "It's very popular because it's easy to install and works well. Sells for $285," says Ruprecht.
