It may very well be a matter of taking what you can get as inexpensive pull-type forage harvesters have gotten very scarce in the last few years around these parts. The really poor ones went for scrap when prices went up a few years ago leaving later models such as NH 790 and JD 3950 that tend to sell in the 3,000 dollar range for the base. I saw a beat up 3940 that was missing expensive parts such as the front part of the PTO drive line sell for 1100 dollars this past winter. We do not see the prices Rod talks about here as a Mennonite will jump on a 39XX so the bidding will start higher. A neighbor ran a 718 chopping green hay and it did alright. A lot of the years dad dairy farmed he chopped green hay with a cut and throw. A cut and blow is nicer for sure but a cut and throw will be adequate in light of the money invested.

My neighbour has at least 3 of the 3940/50 that he paid at most 750 each for. I've got a 3970 that I paid ~1500 for several years ago. Lot of guys got out around here in the last 10 years and there's a lot of that gear sitting around... and every so often some of it cycles through the auction.
