Interesting Nebraska Auction Thursday - Prices

Dec 14, 2013

Nope, not the lowest hour stuff you'll ever see, or the biggest, or the newest, but very nice condition nontheless. I like farm auctions like this. I'm talking about a farm sale Thursday (December 12, 2013) out in east-central Nebraska, a sale by my friends at Stock Auction Company. Here's my Machinery Pete highlight list from the auction, complete with pics, prices & my notes:

1982 JD 4440 Tractor with 6,782 hours: $29,000  (Pete Says: "Nice 4440, strong price for pushing 6,800 hours")

JD4440 NE  29K


JD 1760 8-Row Planter, <1,000 acres: $40,000  (Pete Says: "2nd highest auction price I've ever seen on an 8-row 1760. Only higher sale price was $59,000 on 12/3/11 farm sale in north-central Indiana for a "1 owner" 2002 model")

JD1760 8R NE  40K


JD 6500 High Boy Sprayer, 2,173 hours: $27,000  (Pete Says: "Tied for 5th highest auction sale price I've seen the past 6 years....high price was $47,000 on a 6/22/13 auction in southeast South Carolina. Also saw a 6500 with 5,019 hours sell for $33,000 on a 1/19/13 farm auction in northeast North Carolina"

1999 JD 9610 Combine, 2,290 engine hours: $47,000  (Pete Says: "Ave. Auction Price on JD 9610's so far in 2013 = $40,638....that is UP from last year's Ave. Auction Price of $38,686, but DOWN from Ave. Auction Price of 5 years ago (2008) of $73,932")

Bobcat S130 skid steer, 184.5 hours: $19,500  (Pete Says: "New record high auction sale price....former high sale price was $16,800 on 12/3/06 farm auction in west-central Iowa for a 2004 model with only 50 hours")
