Used 4WD tractor values continue to be higher in Canada vs the U.S.
Definitely not a new trend there. I've been writing/blogging on this topic for 10+ years now, but it's still eye catching when the proof shows itself in the form of very strong auction sale prices rolling in from north of the border. Case in point, two farm auctions in Saskatchewan last week by our good friends at Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers (http://www.rbauction.com).
First from a farm auction July 17th in White Fox, SK, the 1997 CaseIH 9350 4WD pictured below, with 3,863 hours, sold for $56,751 (U.S. dollars).
$56,751 is the highest auction sale price on a CaseIH 9350 4WD tractor in 37 months. Had to go back to a June 14, 2016 auction in, not surprisingly, Saskatchewan again, to find a 9350 sold higher...$59,219 (U.S.) for a 1998 model 9350 with 3,041 hours.
The average auction price on the last (11) CaseIH 9350 4WD tractors sold = $40,154. The current average dealer advertised price on CaseIH 9350's = $46,567. Not much difference there between the average auction price and average dealer ad price, is there?

The next day, on a July 18th farm auction in Choiceland, SK, another Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers sale, the following pair of very sharp 4WD tractors sold:
2013 Versatile 400 with 759 hours: $145,578 (U.S)
Pete's Note: Record high auction price here on Versatile 400.
