30 Years Old when it sold last December. Doesn’t look a day over New.

Now its getting ready to hit the field.

Greg, thought you might like to see a picture of this baler. It sold last December at Brinkley Auction in Idabel, Okla. 1991 John Deere 435, only baled 600 bales. All original paint, barn kept, barely worn the paint off the pickup teeth. Looks like it just came off the lot. We’re about to start baling with it. I just wanted you to see it. Thanks for all you do sir.” - Kevin Lane.

Thank You Kevin for sharing the pictures and story on this absolutely Like New JD 435 round baler. BTW, Kevin wasn’t kidding about the paint barely worn off the pickup teeth.

Hoping Kevin may be able to get me a bit of video of this 1991 JD 435 round baler back in action in the field. Stay tuned. And the $13,000 purchase price on the 12/16/21 Idabel, Okla. auction…Yes, a record high auction sale price on a 435, but deservedly so.
