A walk through the auction lot

GREG PETERSON 04/08/2011 @ 8:11am Greg Peterson writes "Machinery Pete" column for Successful Farming magazine and appears on the Machinery Show on RFD-TV, talking about trends in the used equipment market

This Saturday, April 9th, I'll be just up the road a bit in Eyota, MN.

I'll be there covering a farm estate auction by Maring Auction Company. Some nice looking equipment on this sale, including a 1999 CaseIH MX170 MFWD tractor with 1,754 hours, a 1996 CaseIH 7250 MFWD tractor with 2,758 hours and a Kinze 3000 6/11 split-row planter that has done only 1,400 acres.

Wondering what those and other pieces of equipment on Saturday's auction are worth? Me too. I had a little fun and made a walk-through video highlighting equipment on this Maring Auction Co. sale and looking up comparable auction sale price data in our Machinerypete.com web site. Have a look:

I will post Youtube video highlights on Saturday evening. Will that CaseIH 7250 tractor sell for $70,000 to $75,000? More? Check back to find out.
