Used Farm Equipment You Can Sell At Auction: Hay Equipment

Monday, April 6th, 2020
farm equipment for sale at auction

Hay equipment is vital to the success of the industry. There are many types of this equipment available at auction. This is helpful for growers who need new machines, but may not be able to purchase them new. Here are some of the most popular pieces of equipment you can sell at a used farm equipment auction to meet that need.

Hay baling equipment

Large round balers are popular machines at auction, especially if they have desirable features like silage-special gears or crop-cutters. Older machines often have these features, so if they are in good shape, there may be a bidding war for them at these events. This is great for you if you want to sell your older farm equipment for the highest price.

Small hay growing equipment

A lot of farm equipment is large because it is made for commercial purposes. This is fine for large operations, but for smaller hay farms, smaller equipment is a necessity. If you have used hay equipment that is in good condition, but you have outgrown it, consider selling it at auction.

Older hay equipment

New equipment sells well at auctions, online, and in most other avenues. But, older equipment is ideal for auctions. Many farmers are looking for used equipment specifically because it is more affordable. As long as your equipment is in good working order, you should be able to successfully sell it at one of these events.

Tips for selling your used hay equipment

If any of this equipment sounds like something you have and you want to sell it at an auction, you may have questions. Here are some tips that can help.

  1. If you aren’t sure what to use for your starting price, consider getting your equipment appraised.
  2. If you choose to sell your equipment through an auction house, find one with experience selling used farm equipment.
  3. The auction house should know how to get the word out about your hay equipment.
  4. Include any documentation you have about your hay equipment. This includes repair receipts and images of the entire machine.
  5. Know which type of auction is best for your needs. If you aren’t sure about this, do some research and reach out to a local professional.
