Hot Weather and Hot Auction Prices on Trucks, Tractors, and Anvils (yes, anvils)

June 20, 2014

The weather was HOT and the bidding was HOTTER on a farm retirement auction Saturday (June 14, 2014) in north-central Kansas (Smith Center, KS). How hot? How about $28,000 for the 1986 Chevy C60 grain truck pictured. It had only 10,000 miles on it, a 366 engine, 2x5 transmission and an 18' steel box. Yes, $28,000 is a new record high auction sale price I've seen on a Chevy C60. 

ChevyC60 KS  28K

It was "1 owner" truck. Most of the equipment on this sale was 1st or 2nd owner equipment. Auctioneer Lee Oliver of Oliver Realty and Auction ( told me last night that owner Vernie Nelssen was extremely particular about the care of all his equipment.

It showed in the sale prices.

Here are a few more highlights from Saturday's sale:

2001 CaseIH MX220 tractor with 750 hours: $98,500 (new record price by $20,500)

1984 Gleaner L3 combine with 2,013 engine hours & 24' header: $28,000
