It’s impressive to witness the ongoing market demand and enthusiasm for good condition used self-propelled sprayers. The recent auction held by Bruce Schapansky Auctioneers on April 28, 2023, further highlights this trend. The 2008 JD 4730 sprayer showcased in the event attracted significant attention from eager buyers. With 2865 hours on the clock, it ultimately sold for a commendable $133,644 (U.S.). This sale serves as a testament to the thriving market for reliable agricultural equipment and the willingness of buyers to invest in quality pre-owned machinery. The red-hot nature of this market shows no signs of slowing down.
