Machinery Pete's auction sale price quiz

"One owner", "always shedded".

I've written before about how these two descriptive comments mean more to prospective buyers of used equipment (any type) than anything else you can say about a piece of equipment for sale.

More proof arrived recently in the form a sale price report from a nice farm auction held April 9, 2009, in east-central Michigan. My friend Scott Sykora of Sykora Auctions was the auctioneer. Older equipment mostly but very well cared for. It showed in the sale prices.

The highest auction sale price I've seen on a JD 110 disk in over 13 years; the third highest sale price I've run across on a Chevy C50 truck; the highest sale price on a JD 660 hay rake in 13+ years; the fifth highest sale price on a JD 4640 this decade.

Alright, now that I've set things up, time to have a little fun and test your knowledge of used equipment values with my latest auction price quiz. I've listed 15 items that sold on this east-central Michigan auction last week. Pictures are posted of each item. After you've made your guess, click on the provided links to view all the auction sale price data I've compiled on each piece of equipment.

Good luck!
