Let’s talk big square balers.

I saw a very nice 2011 model Massey Ferguson 2150, one owner, only produced 7,800 bales, sell for $51,000 at a farm auction in northeast Iowa on Saturday  (July 22, 2017). Here’s a picture of it:


How does $51,000 compare to other 2150’s sold at auction recently? Here’s a look:

Now we have a handle on the “hard cash” what’s it worth if I have to sell it tomorrow angle, what about the buyer demand side of things? Here’s info from our Machinery Pete “Dealer Center” analytics dashboard:
