Jun. 07, 2022 • Analysis

Fresh off the spring auction season, Tractor Zoom featured 506 farm equipment auctions across the country, with over 9,500 lots advertised in the month of May. During this time frame, farm equipment bidders made a 2019 John Deere R4045 the top-selling item during a DPA Auctions consignment auction on May 17. Self-propelled sprayers were a hot item last month holding three of the top four auction prices of the month.

Albrecht Auction sells 2014 Case IH 7230 for $170,000 on May 4, 2022.

2014 Case IH 7230 auction sale price

  • More: Luxury Cab, Pro 700 with Auto Guidance, New Extended Wear Coen and Vanes, Pivoting Unloading Spout with Camera on the End of the Auger, Independent Cross Auger Control, Hydraulic Folding Bin Extensions

During the spring auction season, where we saw a 2021 John Deere S770 sell for over $367,000, we hypothesized that farmers may be hedging their bets and getting an early start on harvest prep based on the limited supply of combines in the market last year. During the month of May, the newest combine available at auction was this 2014 Case IH 7230, which may signal a continued shortage in the auction market for newer, low-hour machines. However, if enough combine deliveries hit dealer lots this summer, availability may be less of an issue.
