Last month, DPA Auctions held the highest auction sale price for the sprayer category with the sale of a 2016 John Deere R4045 for $155,500. With continued supply chain pressures on OEMs and delayed deliveries for new equipment, it’s not surprising to see this low-hour self-propelled sprayer garner a higher sale price than June’s 2016 model.

Harvesting

The average price for low-hour, late model combines continued to be strong throughout July — 5 combines, with 500 or less separator hours each, sold during the month at an average price of $355,700.  Premium values for these recently sold harvesters are likely to support elevated values as we go into August, which is typically the hottest selling month for all harvest equipment. Our Tractor Zoom Combine Index for July also reinforces this limited equipment supply, combined with back-to-back profitable growing seasons should continue to prop up values for the rest of 2022.
