Used John Deere 4055
This John Deere 4055 2WD tractor with 2,462 hours sold for $46,000 on a farm auction near Gettysburg, PA September 10, 2011
The record stood for 15 years and 7 months.
$45,000 was the highest auction sale price I had ever documented on a John Deere 4055 tractor. That sale price was all the back on February 1, 1996 on a farm auction in southwest Iowa, where a 1992 model 4055, two-wheel drive with only 339 hours, in excellent condition, sold for $45,000. 4055’s are 105 horsepower and were made by Deere from 1989-92.
Ready for the scoop on the new record price?
It came on a farm auction near Gettysburg, PA on September 10, 2011. This south-central Pennsylvania auction had a John Deere 4055 (2WD) with 2,462 hours on it in very good condition. It sold for $46,000.
15 years and 7 months later, with 2,123 more hours and it sells at auction for more money. Shows you how these very nice condition used John Deere tractors really hold their value.
