1981 John Deere 4240 tractor with 4,791 hours sold for a new record high auction sale price of $34,500 on a Feb. 28, 2012 farm auction in east-central Nebraska
Another week, another new record auction price on a John Deere tractor.
Last week’s new record high sale price was $34,500 paid for a very nice 1981 JD 4240 on a February 28, 2012 farm auction in east-central Nebraska. This 4240 was a “2nd owner” tractor and had 4,791 hours. Noteably, it was also a “Quad Range”, not a “Power Shift” and sold with 9-bolt duals & hubs.
