The John Deere 4455, made from 1989-1992 continues to be one of the “hottest”, most sought after used tractors on the market. Three recent farm auction sale prices prove the point.
(This tractor sold for $72,000 on an April 4, 2014 farm auction in south-central Minnesota)
Pictured above is a 1990 JD 4455 with 3,729 hours sold for $72,000 on an April 4, 2014 farm auction in south-central Minnesota. That is the 3rd highest auction sale price I’ve ever seen on a 4455 (sold without loader), and I’ve seen 348 sold over the past 18+ years.
Pictured below is a 1992 JD 4455 with 2,964 hours sold with a JD 640 loader for $78,000 on a March 28, 2014 farm auction in south-central Nebraska.
And finally, this 1992 JD 4455 2WD model (pictured below) with 3,850 hours sold for $64,000 on a March 15, 2014 farm auction in north-central North Carolina, making it the 2nd highest auction sale price ever on a 2WD 4455.
My crystal ball is looking for continued very strong buyer demand for good condition, low hour JD 4455’s as they show up on the horizon for sale, whether at auction, by dealer, or for sale privately by owner. Buyers know what they like and they definitely LIKE JD 4455’s.
