Auction Results-Smith Sales Auction in Red Power

Hi Guys,

Forgot to mention in my previous post some auction results from this last weekend. Smith Sales had an ad in the last issue of Red Power. Auction was held in Western Wisconsin. It was mainly advertised as a John Deere tractor and Sign and Clock auction but they ended up with a fair number of farmalls.

Non running older cub with fenders, good rubber $850
Farmall A, excellent runner, perfect sheet metal, fenders, good rubber front and rear wheel weights $1250
230 with new rear rubber, fast hitch, fair to good sheetmetal $1950
Completely restored 404 nf $8500
404 w/ WF for parts or restore with lots of extra parts ~$7000
(2) 400's one nf, one with Norden wf, both went for $950 each. I've been looking for a 400 and wanted the one with the wf reeeaaalllll bad. But didn't want to hear what the wife would have to say when I got home. So when I did get home I asked her what she would say if I told her that I bought a tractor for around $900. She said she wouldn't be very happy but it sounded like a good price...I just about fell over in shock!

I think most people were there for the John Deere's because the prices for the Farmalls was extremely low for what people are getting for tractors around this part of the country.

I was at the auction Saturday also. I took pictures of all the IH tractors including a W-6 and W-4 that were somewhat restored. The clocks and signs went for a lot of money as my son wanted to buy an IH clock, but when the bidding ended at over $300 he decided to go back to looking on e-bay. We had to go to a graduation party, so I didn't stay for the tractor sales. Looks like it was a good thing I didn't as I probably would have bought one to go with my other 5 Farmalls. Roger

Yeah, you probably should be kicking yourself... 400's are GREAT runners, ours will run circles around our 460 any day. It still gets used for all the heavy tillage and picking, but it is currently begging for 1000 bucks of attention, eg. new rings, TA and clutch attention, etc. Oh well.... A good philosophy is, get what you want, then worry about the wife later, but I can only say this from observation since I am not married yet...

The one with the nf ran but was in only overall fair condition. It would have needed new tires too. The wf was in really nice shape. Nice sheet metal, tires good, it had a tach. Both tractors had standard drawbar hitches and triple lever hydraulics.

I'm really kicking myself over not buying the 400 with the wide front...oh well

Wished I could have made it to that auction! Sounds like that 400 was a steal!
