1988 John Deere 4450 2WD with only 1462 Hours on MN Auction

May 11, 2019

Remember (how could you forget?) that online farm estate auction June 18th in Beardsley, MN I blogged about Thursday night, the sale with the 1983 John Deere 8820 combine with 15.5 engine hours and the 1990 John Deere 9600 with only 311 engine hours? (here's the blog: https://discuss.machinerypete.com/t/1983-jd-8820-combine-with-0-sep-hours-to-sell-at-auction/1169).

Yeah, that sale.

Well, couple of slightly interesting tractors for sale on this auction as well. And when I say "slightly", I don't really mean slightly...I mean...Wow:

Ok, now the question is...What's this 1988 John Deere 4450 2WD with only 1,462 hours worth? Good question. Obviously difficult to find many good comparables. But I dug through our Machinery Pete auction sale price data and came up with this Top 10 list of Highest auction sale prices on John Deere 4450 2WD tractors. Do you remember any in this list?

Note that each of the 5 highest selling 8850's had Kinze Cummins repowers. The chart topper on the 3/18/17 farm auction in Williamsburg, IA was really something...owned by Jon Kinzenbaw himself and sold his farm auction. Had 0 hours on the repower! Went for $71,000...wow.
