The flow of super sharp, good condition, low hour, used tractors to the auction block here early in 2019 continues unabated. Frankly I've never seen so much excellent condition used equipment sold on farm auctions.
And I've been tracking auction sale price data nearly 30 years now.
Sale prices on this torrent of good condition, low hour, used farm equipment continues to hold very strong as we hit mid April 2019. Another example came a week ago today (April 9, 2019) on a farm auction up in northeast North Dakota by Resource Auction (http://www.resourceauction.com).
On the sale last Tuesday was the sharp 2013 John Deere 8285R tractor pictured below. IVT, ILS, had 1,395 hours on it. Sold for $176,000.
$176,000 is the 2nd highest auction sale price on a John Deere 8285R tractor the past 4 years.
