Machinery Pete: Strong Buyer Demand on Pre-Emissions Tractors

June 26, 2017 02:48 PM

Machinery Pete has been touring auctions in Iowa lately, and he’s tracking trends.

In Marshalltown, Ia., he came across a John Deere 4955, seeing the highest auction price for that model in four years. At the same sale, Machinery Pete came across a John Deere 8200 that sold for the second highest auction price he’s seen in five years for that model.

These strong sales have some asking if this is a vote for pre-emissions tractors, which he said it is, especially if they have low hours and are in good condition.

Watch Machinery Pete every Monday on AgDay.
