Last John Deere 4255 Made Sold Today on Lawler, IA Farm Auction

This might be a first.


First time I’ve seen the same tractor sold twice at auction over the years and be a Top 5 Highest Auction Sale Price each time. Pretty cool.

Happened today (November 10, ,2019) on the Don and Ryan Winter farm auction in Lawler, IA where a 1992 JD 4255 2WD tractor with 3535 hours…the VERY LAST JD 4255 made, SN# 11844, sold for $60,000. Today’s sale was by my good friends at Sweeney Auction Service ( Here’s a picture.

This very same 1992 JD 4255 2WD tractor sold for $72,000 (Record High Auction Price…Still) on a 3/26/11 consignment auction in Fredricksburg, IA. Back then it had only 1850 hours on it. Here’s a picture of it selling that day just over 8 1/2 years ago.


Here’s Machinery Pete Youtube video of it selling for $72K back on 3/26/11:

The $60,000 sale price today clocks in as the 4th highest auction sale price ever on a JD 4255…so this baby holds the No. 1 and No. 4 spot in our highest price list:
