I was at the big Steffes consignment auction on Wed. in Fargo and it seemed to be a cheap day for combines. An 08 7010 with 298 sep hrs went for 160k, an 06 8010 with 756 sep hrs for 130k, and an 06 8010 with 990 sep hrs for 141k. These were without heads. My friend bought the last one by making a quick decsion. I think he did alright. They were all without heads. The Titan dealer who put them in the sale said he lost 30k on the one my friend bought. And similar amounts on the other two.

that does seem low how were they setup? that can make a difference depending on rotor tire size 2 wheel drive . still is cheap compared to what dealers are asking one thing to consider though is you cant trade yours in had to either pay cash or find your own financing. sometimes that does mean alot

It's an auction fellas. That is what auctions do, let the free market dictate the price. Last time I checked the economy was still the sh!ts. Dealers use auctions to generate cash flow and move interest bearing equipment.
