The strong sale price at $172,500 simply a continuation of the trend I've been seeing since November 2017...strong buyer demand and folks willing to pay premium to acquire the best condition used farm equipment. Of course super condition, low hour tractors in the 10 plus year old age, no matter what color...RED HOT.

All the more so because of the continuing RISING price of new tractors and farm equipment due to rising raw material costs due to tariffs as highlighted in this report by Tyne Morgan on Agweb.com yesterday: https://www.agweb.com/article/tractor-prices-on-the-rise-industry-faces-double-whammy-with-tariffs/

The rising cost of new continues to make the best condition used with a bit of age on it highly desirable to buyers, even in this tough ag economy...maybe fair to see particularly in this tough ag economy.
