"The cleanest one I've ever seen."
Auctioneer Chad Loucks talking there talking about the New Idea 213 manure spreader he sold yesterday on WTC Auction consignment sale in Saegertown, PA (http://www.wtcauction.com). Here are a couple pictures of it:
It sold for $4,000, a new record high auction sale price on a New Idea 213. Here's a look at the 10 highest sale prices I've seen:

"The paint was still on the insides, floor and beater," said Loucks.
Loucks said the buyer was local and has a 213 at home and likes it so much he bought this one as a replacement. That's a not uncommon theme I hear. Folks always eyes open looking around for the nicest condition model like they have at home, or used to own and love. When they finally find that super nice one for sale...happy to pay to acquire it.
And on the topic of Manure Spreaders, more folks have been looking of late. In fact during the 4th Qtr. of 2017 we saw a 59.3% spike in searches on Manure Spreaders at http://www.machinerypete.com.
