Hot Prices on Older Used Skid Steers
Jun 08, 2018
Skid Steers too.
Just as I've been seeing very strong (rising) premium sale prices paid at auction for very nice condition 15-20 year old used Tractors, seeing the exact same trend on 15-20 year old used Skid Steers as well. 2 examples from the past week or so highlight this trend.
First was the 2000 model Bobcat 773 skid steer with only 179 hours (pictured below) sold for $18,200 on a May 30 farm auction in Mainville, OH by our friends at Hess Auction Co. (http://www.hessauctionco.com):
$18,200 is the 4th highest auction sale price I've seen on a Bobcat 773 skid steer and not that far off the highest sale price of $19,500 set on a 9/11/09 farm auction in Wahpeton, ND for an 873 with only 212 hours on it.
3 days after the 2000 Bobcat 773 sold for $18,200 came a super sharp 1998 model Case 1840 skid steer with 665 hours on a farm auction in Bourbon, IN. This sale was by the great team at Ball Auction & Realty (http://www.ballreatlygroup.com). Here's a picture of it:
