 John Deere 1760 Planter

This 2002 JD 1760 8-row no-till planter with liquid fertilizer sold for a record high auction price of $59,000 on a December 3, 2011 farm auction in north-central Indiana. This was the second time in three weeks a new record high sale price was set on John Deere 1760’s.

Auction sale prices on good condition used John Deere planters shot significantly higher late in 2011.

I saw proof from farm auctions in Kansas, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Indiana and Ohio, each producing record or near record high auction sale prices on a variety of used Deere planters. The kicker was a 2002 model John Deere 1760 8-row planter sold for $59,000 on a farm auction December 3, 2011 in north-central Indiana. Here’s a Youtube video I put together highlighting these record-setting planters, footage of the JD 1760 selling for $59,000 on the Indiana auction is toward the end of the video:
