Is it just me or are some people these day forget common sense when it comes to auction sales. It seems this year these sales are bring out people who just don't have a clue what an item really is worth. I've gone to about 10 auctions so far this year and my theory about this turns alittle bit into fact each time. Just yesterday I went to a sale, there was a 30 foot sprayer sitting there. Well this sprayer was in really really tough shape, the booms looked like they were rapped around a tree, missing all 4 tires, :!: the tank was cracked, and to top it off, all the hoses and the pump were missing. I was thinking (like many other farmers there)that they would be lucky to get a bid on the dumb thing, well they got a bid alright, it went up to $2700. Some one won a real winner there!! The same goes for panels, to get a new panel by us is around $85 - $130. At some sales, these used panels go for $100 for light panel and $135 for heavy duty. Nuts. But what really is the kicker is when the winner and the runner up get into a fight over the item. I guess I have to wear boxing equipment to my next sale if this is what it takes to get the winning bid!! :lol2: By the way it was only a verbal fight.
