1995 Ford L8000 Grain Truck: Sold $55,500

Jul 26, 2013


Wow, good used grain trucks are hot sellers right now.

Don't believe me? Watch the Youtube video above. A 1995 Ford L8000 grain truck with the following "Specs" sold for $55,500 on a farm estate auction yesterday (July 25, 2013) in Carthage, IL:

SPECS:  8.3L Cummins 505, Allison 6-spd. auto, Reiten 18' aluminum grain bed w/ Scott level lift LL2000 hoist, 60" sides, cargo doors w/ grain gate, Shurco roll tarp, air brakes, 11R22.5 rear tires (very good), 138,327 miles

That's the 2nd highest auction price I've ever seen on a Ford L8000. The only higher sale price was $56,000 on a December 7, 2012 farm auction in southeast Nebraska for a 1993 Ford L8000 grain truck with only 40,678 miles, twin screw, 20' aluminum box. So just 7 months ago. Like I said, good used grain trucks are "hot" sellers currently.

The Youtube video also shows a 2010 CaseIH 225 Magnum tractor with 460 hours selling, as well as a 2008 CaseIH 245 Magnum tractor with 1,000 hours. One of the other interesting items on yesterday's west-central Illinois farm auction was the 2009 CaseIH Turbo 330 vertical tillage tool. It was 25' and sold for $39,500. Here's how that stacks up against other Turbo 330's sold at auction the last few years:
