Machinery Pete: Massey Ferguson deja vu

I have a case of Massey Ferguson Déjà vu.

Tomorrow, April 26, 2013, on a farm estate auction in Hayter, Alberta, Canada, the (3) following Massey Ferguson items will be up for sale:

1. 1996 MF 8160 MFWD tractor with 1,631 hours , 1 owner, shedded


2. 1982 MF 4840 4WD tractor with 7,411 hours, 1 owner, shedded


3. 1987 MF 8560 combine with 2,322 engine hours, 9006 header, 1 owner, shedded


Why the case of déjà vu? Because I covered a farm retirement auction June 27, 2012 in north-central Iowa with these (3) Massey Ferguson items:

  1. 1998 MF 8160 MFWD tractor with 2,885 hours, 1 owner, shedded

  2. 1982 MF 4800 4WD tractor with 6,416 hours, 1 owner, shedded

  3. 1987 MF 8560 combine with 4,860 engine hours

How did those (3) very nice Massey Ferguson items sell? See for yourself, here’s a YouTube video I shot at that 6/27/12 farm retirement auction in north-central Iowa, a sale by Ryerson Auction & Realty, Ltd:
