My last trade was $313 a separator hour all in with interest and everything accounted for, we were averaging just a smidge under 20 acres an hour on the previous set. This takes into account a repair credit as I don’t have to fix the set I traded and have one year of warranty where I shouldn’t have to fix much of anything. The trade was for same model to same model other than one 780tt without Cemos, while rest were 760tt with cemos so I called them close to a wash. I didn’t factor any money in for the upgrades in the new machine, the anti plug system and the rotor covers being the most important to me.
This deal also made my previous set work out to $140 a separator hour, something I did not predict happening at all when we first bought lexions. Largely a function of the dollar losing value. In previous years the deals they offered for trading were laughable, often $500-600 a seperator bout. This year it seems the value of used stuff is finally catching up to where in should be in relation to new. Still a ton of money. I don’t know how I would justify it if there wasn’t atleast 4000 acres to do per machine.
