JD 9570 STS Combines: Prices & Upcoming Sales

Oct 28, 2013

 JD9570 IA 11 2 13

What do I love about covering farm machinery auctions the past 24 years? Looking back, but also always looking forward.

Looking ahead I see (2) very nice JD 9570 STS combines on upcoming farm auctions in Iowa in November. Pictured above is the 2011 JD 9570 STS with only 188 engine hours for sale on a November 2, 2013 farm auction in Springville, IA, a sale by Hoge Auctioneering: www.hogeauctioneering.com

A bit further ahead I spy a 2009 JD 9570 STS combine with 675 engine hours on a November 21, 2013 farm auction in Red Oak, IA (pic below). This sale by the good folks at Rubey Auction: www.rubeyrealty.com

Looking back, what have nice JD 9570 STS combines been selling for at auction? Definitely the right question to ask if you're thinking of bidding on these babies. Here's a table showing 9570's I've seen sold at auction the past couple years:

It will be very interesting to see how this pair of JD 9570 STS combines sell on the (2) Iowa auctions. Farm auctions tend to produce "stronger" auction sale prices vs. large consignment or dealer/online auctions. Also, auction prices have cut "higher" during the 4th Qtr. each of the past 11 calendar years as tax motivated buyers pour into the used market. One more + working toward competitive bidding will be the fact that these smaller capacity used combines tend to be in higher buyer demand vs. the larger capacity machines (more big machines sitting on implement dealer lots, less price pressure). On the negative side, late-model combine values in general have been under pressure here the past 3 1/2 years.

Like I said, it will be interesting to see what they go for...stay tuned.
