What are row crop headers worth?

Agriculture.com Staff 06/15/2006 @ 10:02am

A couple rare pieces of equipment caught my eye recently.

Both were Deere row crop heads, and both sold on farm auctions in the past week. Nothing that unusual about Deere row crop heads. They've been around for a long time, and there are plenty of them out there for sale at auctions and on dealer lots around the country.

But these two heads weren't the more common 653, 653A, 853 or 853A six and eight row narrow models. One was a 654A, the other a 1253A.

The 654A six-row wide head was a 1990 model. It sold June 6, 2006, on a farm auction in northwest Kansas. It had sunflower shields and a Bish adapter. It sold for $4,200.

The 1253A 12-row narrow head sold on a small farm sale June 8, 2006, in east-central Illinois. It had 75% belts and sold with optional Bish adapter plate. It went for $11,750.

That's what I love about covering auctions. You never know when you'll run across an unusual piece of equipment and wonder, "What the heck is that thing worth?"
