The ‘Tractor Grill’ and More Machinery Pete Facebook Finds

The ‘Tractor Grill’ and More Machinery Pete Facebook Finds

You may love tractors, but Machinery Pete lives and breathes them. He has been researching and analyzing machinery auction prices since 1989. His database totals close to 500,000 auction sale prices on roughly 70 categories of equipment, making it the most comprehensive and complete of its kind.

A lot of Machinery Pete’s analysis ends up on AgWeb, but he also posts a ton of his on-the-go auction photos and observations on Facebook. Here’s a sampling of some of these “Facebook finds” from the past week or so.
