5 Record Prices on Saskatoon, SK Farm Auction

Wow, what a sale!

April 27, 2013, up in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, a farm auction for two brothers. An absolutely beautiful line of farm equipment. Beautiful may be too pale an adjective. This stuff was immaculate. Sale prices ran very high, including these (5) new record high auction sale prices:

* 2006 JD 8330 tractor with 694 hours, sold: $167,500

2004 John Deere Gator T520 Sold for $11,700 at Ohio Auction

JDGator OH 11700 2004 John Deere Gator T520 Sold for $11,700 at Ohio Auction

I covered a nice farm retirement auction for Richard Bissantz in southwest Ohio on April 13, 2013.

Lots of big equipment on this auction, like a 2007 John Deere 9220 4WD tractor with only 683 hours ($167,000), a 2007 John Deere 8130 tractor with 375 hours ($143,000), and a 2008 John Deere 9670 STS combine with 411 engine hours ($183,000).

But Richard’s favorite piece of equipment on his farm, the one he hated to see go the most? His 2004 John Deere Gator T520. It was a diesel, 4WD, with cab & front hitch. Oh yeah, it only had 47 hours on it.

John Deere 4450 Tractor Sold $20K Over Record Price

JD4450 MN 70750 John Deere 4450 Tractor Sold $20K Over Record Price

Above is a 1988 John Deere 4450 with 2,612 hours which sold for a new record auction sale price of $70,750 on a 3/9/13 farm estate auction in Alpha, MN

I’ve been covering machinery auctions for 23 1/2 years. I’ve seen a lot of tractors sell.

None quite like the 1988 JD 4450 I watched sell on a March 9, 2013 farm estate auction in Alpha, MN. This was a beautiful tractor with only 2,612 “1 owner” hours in fantastic condition. The 4450 never pulled any tillage. As good used tractor values are up 7-15% so far here in 2013 I was very interested to see how high this super nice JD 4450 would sell.

JD 1760 Planter Sold for Near Record Auction Price

JD1760 MI 52K JD 1760 Planter Sold for Near Record Auction Price

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:

Online or Traditional Auction: John Deere Tractors Sell Strong

JD4960 OH 114K Online or Traditional Auction: John Deere Tractors Sell Strong

I’m asked the question often.

Hey, Machinery Pete, how do online auction sale prices compare to traditional on site auctions?” Well, I’ve been closely observing this question the past few years as online machinery auctions have continued to grow and we continue to compile auction sale price data on all types of used farm and construction equipment sold on all types of auctions all over the U.S. and Canada. Pretty hard to generalize, as obviously many important factors go into sale price comparisons, but one thing is clear to me.

Good condition used John Deere tractors sell very well in either auction format.

JD 2520 Tractors Sold for $20K+ on Minnesota Auction

jd2520 JD 2520 Tractors Sold for $20K+ on Minnesota Auction

On August 11, 2012, in Red Wing, MN a farm retirement auction with a line of spiffy used farm equipment was held. But what was everyone in the days leading up to the auction talking about?

The pair of low hour John Deere 2520 diesel tractors.

One was a 1969 model with 3,503 original hours on it. The other was a 1970 model with 5,815 hours. I can’t begin to count the number of folks who picked my brain for what these 2520′s might sell for. “What do you think Pete, how much?”

2004 JD 4710 Sprayer Sells High on Indiana Farm Auction

I’m guessing most of the 1,300+ folks in attendance at last Friday’s farm estate auction in North Judson, IN came away talking about the 1971 John Deere 4020 diesel, console, power shift tractor with approx. 5,500 hours that sold for $20,000 on a farm estate auction in northwest Indiana on  1/11/13 . Very strong price (see pic below):

Sweet used tractor. Strong price.

But after visiting with auctioneer Steve Feldman with Ball Auction & Realty, Inc., I was likewise impressed with what the 2004 John Deere 4710 sprayer with 2,126 hours (90′ boom, Norac boom leveling system)
that sold for $112,000.

1971 JD 4000 Tractor Sold for $35,000 on Iowa Auction

JD4000 IA pic2 35K 1971 JD 4000 Tractor Sold for $35,000 on Iowa Auction

This rare 1971 John Deere 4000 diesel, Power Shift tractor with 5,562 hours sold for $35,000 on a December 18, 2012 farm retirement auction in Indepedence, IA.

It wasn’t the prettiest. It was missing a few parts. But it’s rare and it was a Deere, so it sold for big $$.

I’m talking about a 1971 John Deere 4000 tractor with 5,562 hours sold on a farm retirement auction December 18, 2012 in the northeast Iowa town of Independece. Deere made the 4000 model tractor from 1969 – 1972, but what made this particular 4000 rare was its configuration…a diesel, power shift.

Take Off Your Boots, Please: John Deere 8410 Sells Big

JD8410 136K ILsale 1024x768 Take Off Your Boots, Please: John Deere 8410 Sells Big

2000 JD 8410 tractor with 584 hours sold for record price of $136,000 on northwest Illinois farm auction. The owner reportedly made everyone and anyone remove their boots & shoes before entering the tractor cab

It was understood. Before entering the cab, you had to take off your boots & shoes.

An extreme example of meticulous care of your used farm equipment, some/most may say obsessive, but it worked. Just look at how the 2000 John Deere 8410 tractor shines. What a beauty. You could eat your Thanksgiving turkey dinner off the hood its so clean.
