Used planter values are up early in 2013.
Proof came on a nice farm auction in central Michigan on Feb. 21, 2013, where the John Deere 1760 12R-30 planter pictured above (Conservation, liquid fertilizer, 1 owner, front fold, 3 bu. seed hoppers, Seedstar) sold for $52,000, just $3,000 off the all-time record auction sale price on a JD 1760 12R-30 of $55,000 (11/21/11 farm auction in northeast Kansas, 1 owner, excellent condition, <1,000 acres use).
Here are (3) other strong auction sale prices I’ve seen so far in 2013 on John Deere 1760 12R-30 used planters:
* $41,000: 2/6/13 farm sale, north-central Illinois
* $41,000: 1/11/13 farm sale, northwest Indiana
* $42,000: 1/19/13 farm sale, northeast Iowa
The February 21, 2013 farm auction in central Michigan also produced a very strong sale price ($30,000) on the 1981 JD 4440 tractor with 6,350 hours, as well as the 1967 JD 3020 diesel tractor with 6,910 hours ($10,100).
