Low Hour JD 4850 and 2955 2WD Tractors on Indiana Farm Auction Wednesday

Could be some hot online bidding on this sale.

The Donald Schloot online farm retirement auction this coming Wedesday (December 30, 2020) in Sullivan, IN by my long time auctioneer friend Jeff Boston with Jeff Boston Auction Service. Not a large farm auction here, but a pair of very low hour, 1 owner John Deere tractors and a 6-row planter with very low use. Here’s link to the sale listing: https://bostoncentury.hibid.com/catalog/251909/schloot-farm-retirement-auction/

1986 JD 4850 2WD with 2847 hours, 1 owner

Of course we don’t see ton of 2WD 4850’s floating around. Made from 1983-1988 the vast majority of 4850’s were MFWD. Here’s a look at the Highest auction sale prices I’ve seen the past 21 years on 2WD 4850’s.

Here’s a pic of the 2nd highest selling 4850 2WD at auction, 1988 model with 2390 hours sold for $41,750 on 12/7/12 farm auction in Wataga, IL.


Overall the Highest auction sale price ever on a JD 4850 is $61,500 for a 1984 model MFWD 4850 with 3027 hours on a 7/6/17 farm auction in Bradford, IL. Here’s a picture of it.

Another very low hour tractor on the Donald Schloot online farm retirement auction in Sullivan, IN on December 30, 2020 is this 1991 JD 2955 2WD with 2564 hours, 1 owner.



Note that the record high auction sale price on JD 2955’s ($41,000) was just set earlier this year, on a 2/3/20 dealer auction in Leesburg, IN for Polk Equipment, Inc. Also note that 1996 model 2WD 2955 did sell with a JD 265 Loader. Here’s a picture of that pristine condition “1 owner” tractor from a local estate.

The other piece of equipment on the Donald Schloot online farm retirement auction Dec. 30 in Sullivan, IN that caught my eye was this JD 7200 6-row planter with only 2300 acres use in its life, 1 owner.


Just 10 days ago, on a December 16, 2020 farm auction in Peach Bottom, PA, a very sharp JD 7200 6-row planter sold for $16,600…the Highest auction price on a 6-row JD 7200 planter in nearly 6 years. Here’s a picture of it.
