Let’s talk Gleaner R62 combines.
The R62 model was made by Gleaner for a whopping 10 years, from 1992 - 2002. Hard to believe R62’s now moving squarely toward that 20 - 30 year old range. Wow.
As used combines age out into that 15+ year old range, obviously current value takes a significant hit. Last year at auction the average sale price on a Gleaner R62 was $15,975. The average auction price has been running in the mid Teen $$ range the past 4 years now.
