Here it is again.
The very last JD 4255 tractor made.
This 1992 model JD 4255 2WD tractor will sell Sunday (November 10, 2019) on the Dan & Ryan Winter farm auction in Lawler, IA, a sale by my good friends at Sweeney Auction Service (www.sweeneyauctionservice.com).
If you are a long time Machinery Pete follower you may remember this tractor…it sold on a March 26, 2011 consignment auction in Fredricksburg, IA by Ray Dietz Auctioneering and Real Estate. Back then, 8 and 1/2 years ago, this beautiful last made 4255 had 1850 hours and sold for $72,000.
That $72,000 price is still a record on 4255’s.
Here’s Machinery Pete Youtube video I posted of this last made JD 4255 tractor selling for $72,000 on 3/26/11: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Fi7xMsxDzU&t=25s
Interesting note on this tractor…it actually marked what I consider to be the “start” of the trend of the 1st or last SN# of a particular Tractor model making it worth a LOT more $$$. I have heard of many instances prior to this March 2011 auction of 1st or last SN# tractors selling for just regular type $$$ when they were offered for sale at auction.
So, what changed?
Since that March 2011 auction…now when a 1st or last SN# tractor model comes up for sale it seems the whole world knows in advance. It’s become “a thing” to find and obtain the 1st or last SN# tractor model.
In this case it will be SO interesting to see what this last SN# JD 4255, now with still low number of hours (3,535 hours), will sell for on the Lawler, IA farm auction Sunday.
What’s your sale price guess?
