    Here are a few I know of, most deal more with "powered" equipment. Most non-powered equipment it's more about the condition of the equipment, no motor and trans to wear out. There is also auction results news letter a friend of mine got in years gone by, but I know he doesn't remember where he got it due to I asked him a few months ago.

    There's the Official Tractor Blue Book for tractors
    and the Rust Book for tractors and implements.

    Honestly, there is no blue book in the tractor industry. They always value a tractor to high or to low. The best thing for getting a close figure on a tractor's value is by going to farm machinery auctions.

    I had to bail a dealer out on his used tractors last year, and he based all his trade in values on the "blue book". After the deal was completed that book only cost him $40,000.00 Thats an expensive book

    I have used the Ritchie Bros. site to look at their auction results. You can search the auction's for a specific machine and review the prices for a number of year's if you want. (I generally only go back a year or two...)

    And don't forget that prices are regional as well. Some models are in high demand in certain areas, dealer support plays in too.
