Old New Holland Baler Sold for Record Auction Price
May 26, 2015
I've been saying it for a while now. Values are rising on super nice condition older, smaller used farm equipment.
More proof yesterday (May 25, 2015) on a farm auction in east-central Missouri by Schneider Auctioneers, LLC. The pristine condition New Holland 269 baler pictured above sold for $5,000, a new record high auction sale price. The previous high auction price I'd seen on a New Holland 269 baler the past 20 years was $2,600 on an April 2, 2005 farm auction in south-central Michigan.
Machinery Pete Facebook follower Jonathan C. attended the auction yesterday. "I couldn't believe how exceptional this equipment was. And to have the pristine owners manual with all of it was unreal. It was fun and neat to be able to see all that stuff up close. Pictures don't do the equipment justice."
