    Check some of the sites that sell used tractors to figure what your maximum buyers price should be. Most equipment dealers will give you a 30 day warranty. Auction prices should be lower than what dealers sell used for. In my own experience I went to two auctions prior to buying the tractor I bought new in 2004. I found the audience had no clue what used pricing should be and way overbid for most everything they were selling. At the time I was looking for both a trailer and a compact tractor. The used trailers (2 at each auction) sold for more than I could buy them new for plus they had damage and missing parts. The tractors sold for 2-3,000 more than I thought they should have. I figured if I added 3-4K to what the used ones sold for I'd get a new one with warranty.

    Boy that is surprising. I figured they have auctions to get rid of junk they can't sell off the lot. I thought things would go for way less because of the risk factor. But then again I am usually wrong when it comes to figuring human nature. I know in my case that I am going to be very conservative. At least it will be a learning experience.

    Ha Ha, I don't even know what happened to it. Had it checked out Friday am. They had the auction set up so you could bid on-line live Sat, which I got approval for just in case. Saturday morning we woke up to 6" of snow and still coming so I decided to stay home and bid on-line rather than driving 75 miles each way again. Well the on-line stuff seemed to go OK for a while then they started skipping lots then it quit all together about 1:30 and that tractor had not come up yet. They don't list it in the auction results either. I will call tomorrow just out of curiousity. After watching the live video stream they had and seeing the final prices I have pretty much decided the auction route is not for me.

    I'll be the first to admit it. My curiosity got the best of me. When the thread appeared I thought somebody else got into the "let's import and re-name another batch of Chinese tractors" game and I didn't have any interest in it. The joke was on me.

    Every time I have bid on equipment at an auction it goes much higher then it should. Add in the fact you have no idea how the item was serviced, etc. I think you can find a better unit at a dependable dealer or private owner for less money.

    The auctioneer wasn't skipping around. The bidding on line would work for a while and then be off and skip a few items then come back on. Then it finally stopped completely at about 1:30. It was interesting how they made it so you could bid on line against others buyers bidding live right at the auction site. While the on-line was working it was pretty good. You had on your home computer an audio and video of the auction and a button which continually updated and showed the next price increment. To bid all you had to do was click the button. Was fast and easy but I guess something went wrong.
