This sale was for you Massey Ferguson lovers.
A farm auction July 21, 2016 up in central Saskatchewan, near the town of Annaheim, SK. The sale was by my friends at Kramer Auctions, LTD (http://www.kramerauction.com) and featured (3) super nice low hour Massey Fergusons. Here's the rundown:
1979 Massey Ferguson 2675 (pictured above), only 67.6 hours: $26,423 (U.S)
That is a new record high auction sale price on a 2675, by a MILE actually. The next highest sale price I've seen the past 20 years was $8,900 all the way back on a January 9, 1996 auction in southwest Iowa. That 2675 had 4,100 hours on an overhaul. Obviously the huge factor on the record setting 2675 on the Saskatchewan auction were those hours...only 67.6 actual hours. My goodness. Naturally folks were interested to know the "scoop" on the incredibly low No. of hours. Auctioneer Brendan Kramer told me "The farmer was also a school teacher. He only farmed a 1/2 section of dirt when he bought it new. Later that year he and his brothers joined farming operations and were covering many more acres. At that point the tractor was too small for most jobs. Joe never sold it because it was sentimental to him after working so hard to pay for it. He kept it in the shed and finally decided to part with it."
1983 Massey Ferguson 4840 4WD with 1,516 hours: $33,316 (U.S)
What a beauty. $33,316 is the 2nd highest auction sale price the past 20 years on a Massey 4840. The only higher sale price was $44,000 on an April 5, 2011 farm auction in southwest Saskatchewan, also sold by Kramer Auctions, Ltd. That one was a 1982 model with 4,190 hours on it.
1972 Massey Ferguson 1100 with 4,082 hours: $7,850 (U.S)
$7,850 is the 2nd highest auction sale price on a Massey 1100 tractor the past 20 years. The only higher price was $8,000 on an April 7, 2004 farm auction in northwest Iowa for an 1100 in good condition that had been overhauled.
