Editor's Notebook: Wonder What That Iron Is Worth?

August 23, 2013 09:59 PM

Ask Machinery Pete. The well-known expert, who started collecting equipment auction data when he was 23 years old, sits on a pile of data that can tell you what iron of every kind is worth. Not only does Greg Peterson have the data, he also offers up perspective and analysis that only someone who lives and breathes it can provide. That started 24 years ago, and now he has a wealth of information relevant to everyone who owns machinery.

We’re proud that you can now tap into his knowledge in the pages of Farm Journal (see page 70). After more than a decade with Successful Farming, Greg recently joined our team. In addition to Farm Journal, you can catch him on all of our media platforms, including:

  • His blog, video and Twitter feed on www.agweb.com.
  • Valuable information from his Used Equipment Index in every issue of Top Producer magazine.
  • Machinery Pete Mondays on "AgDay" TV and "AgriTalk" radio.

Beyond that, look for him on Facebook and Twitter and check out his cool tools at www.machinerypete.com. You’ll like what you see.

This fall, you’ll also be able to catch his new television show on RFD. (See his blog for more information.)

Every step of the way, you’ll be able to leverage the Machinery Pete auction data. The database houses 500,000-plus auction sale prices on roughly 75 categories of equipment. A network of more than 950 auction firms supplement his first-hand data. What a cool deal for a guy who hails from a family deeply rooted in the machinery business!
