Machinery Pete Sees Second Highest Price for 1991 Ford-Versatile 846 Designation 6

I've been saying this for three to five years, auction prices on good condition used tractors are running "high" north of the border in Canada.

More proof came this past week. First, a farm auction Wedneday near Rosetown, SK, in the west-central region of Saskatchewan. The 1991 Ford-Versatile 846 Designation 6 four-wheel-drive with 2,894 hours sold for $57,500. That is the second-highest auction price I've seen on an 846 in 18+ years. The only higher auction sale price came all the way back at a 10/19/02 farm auction from this same west-central Saskatchewan area ($58,500) for a 1993 model with 2,757 hours.

Here are two other nice tractors that sold on Wednesday's farm auction in Rosetown, SK:

1986 Case IH 2394 with 3,990 hours, sold: $26,000  (new record price)

CaseIH2394 SK  26K


1988 Case IH 7110 with 4,603 hours, sold: $35,000

This farm auction  was by my friends at Kramer Auctions, Ltd. ( The next day, Thursday, June 5, 2014, Kramer Auctions had another nice farm auction, this one near Wiseton, SK, which is in the same west-central area of Saskatchewan. Sold on this sale were a pair of 1983 Massey Ferguson 4800 4WD tractors with 5,000 and 5,300 hours. These tractors were "twin sisters" with consective serial numbers. They sold choice and went for $30,000 each. Here's a pic:
