Check out what this tractor went for and some additional top-selling pieces of farm equipment sold at auction below.

An analysis of Tractor Zoom’s Iron Comps database on July 11, 2022 shows an average auction sale price of $181,900 for all 2010 9430s sold in the last year, which is almost 30% less than what this tractor sold for on June 8! The premium sale price can likely be attributed to the limited supply of quality tractors in the market.
