Book takes the guesswork out of machinery buying, selling

Agriculture.com Staff 10/23/2006 @ 9:50am

Auction guru Greg "Machinery Pete" Peterson has created the most comprehensive collector's guide for antique and used machinery.

From the publisher of Successful Farming magazine, Rust Book is a 352-page resource that takes the guesswork out of buying or selling all types of antique tractors, implements and trucks. It features more than 8,000 pieces of antique iron, as well as the most complete listing of serial numbers by tractor make and the Nebraska Tractor Test results.

Rust Book includes the prices collectors have paid over the past five years for tractors and implements from the 1920s to the 1970s. When used at auctions or on the Internet, Rust Book guides collectors to ask the right questions and pay the right price. As an added bonus, the book comes with an exclusive collector club and publication guide.

"Machinery Pete's monthly feature column and auction research data continually rank at the top of our reader preference surveys," says Successful Farming publisher Scott Mortimer. "He's an invaluable resource for anyone considering this type of purchase."

"Equipment auctions demand serious preparation," adds SF Machinery Editor Dave Mowitz. "As machinery values continue to rise, Rust Book is certain to be chosen by farmers, dealers and agricultural bankers as their primary reference guide."
