RE­SEARCH FINDS OVER 1,500 COM­BINES ARE AVAIL­ABLE, MAK­ING THEM ONE OF THE BEST IRON VAL­UES IN AGRI­CUL­TURE.

Successful Farming - - CONTENTS -

The sea of used iron that deal­er­ships found them­selves float­ing in since late 2014 has cer­tainly re­ceded. There still ex­ists a very healthy sup­ply of late­model used com­bines on the mar­ket­place, I dis­cov- ered dur­ing a search of late­model Deere com­bines.

I sus­pect that after four years of lean sales, deal­er­ships are ready to bar­gain prior to har­vest­time to pare down their used com­bine in­ven­to­ries.

Am­ple sup­plies of late-model com­bines are keep­ing their ask­ing prices in check, mak­ing them one of best deals in ma­chin­ery – new and used – these days. This is borne out by the to­tal cost of own­er­ship anal­y­sis pro­vided by Iron So­lu­tion’s David David­son on page 28.

Proof of the healthy sup­ply of late-model com­bines is wit­nessed by the data table above. This list­ing of prices and hours was de­rived from John Deere’s dealer web­site, ma­chin­eryfinder.com.

In­ven­to­ries of late-model Deere com­bines are still in am­ple sup­ply on deal­ers’ lots in­di­cat­ing a po­ten­tial sum­mer sell-off.
