Deere made the 150 horsepower 7810 model tractor from 1997-2003, making today’s tractors 12-18 years old now. Yet, they are proving to be worth more money as they age.

From 1996 through 2007, the highest auction sale price I saw on a John Deere 7810 tractor was $78,000…on a January 21, 2005 farm auction in northwest Illinois where a 2000 model with only 590 hours hit the $78K mark.

Since 2008 how many JD 7810’s have I seen sold over $80,000? Try a whopping 29. Wow.
