My auctioneer friend Bob Zielsdorf from my hometown of Benson, MN had quite the sale today, a retirement auction down the road in Montevideo, MN for Roger & Martha Molde (http://www.zielsdorfauctions.com).
Check out the 1997 John Deere 8300 with only 868 hours, 1 owner, on the sale today:
It sold for $95,000. That is tied for the highest auction sale price on a John Deere 8300 tractor in nearly 5 1/2 years.
Another hot seller on today's sale was the 2010 John Deere 9670 STS combine with just 469 engine hours pictured below:
It sold for $158,000 with no heads. That is the 2nd highest auction sale price on a 9670 in 4 years. The only higher sale price was $161,000 for a 2011 model 9670 STS with 919 engine hours on a farm auction in Cambridge, IL by Sullivan Auctioneers on March 24, 2018.
Here's a sale price report from the Roger & Martha Molde farm retirement auction today in Montevideo, MN:
