This John Deere 4440 tractor with 5,333 hours sold for $42,000 on an October 25, 2012 farm estate auction in south-central Wisconsin.
I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: It PAYS to take great care of your used equipment!
Vivid proof came on a farm estate auction October 25, 2012 near Janesville, WI. George Auction Service held this sale that featured (2) very nice condition, well cared for John Deere tractors, a 4440 tractor with 5,333 hours and a late-model JD 4020 with 8,233 hours (diesel, power shift, side console, 1 onwer).
The John Deere 4440 tractor sold for $42,000, a good bit more money that it would have sold for brand new 30 years ago. I’ve documnted TONS of John Deere 4440’s sold over the years (1,137 auction sale prices over past 16 years). $42,000 is the 4th highest auction sale price I’ve seen on a John Deere 4440.
Here is a pic of the late model John Deere 4020 with 8,233 hours sold for $24,000 on this same October 25, 2012 farm estate auction near Janesville, WI:
