The 4 highest I’ve ever seen.

What? Auction sale prices on IHC 186 Hydro tractors, each sold here in 2014. Coming into this year the highest auction sale price I’d ever seen on a 186 Hydro (made from 1976-1981) was $16,700, all the way back on a January 8, 1999 farm auction in northwest Illinois. That 186 Hydro had only 990 hours on it.

So here’s the rundown on the (4) high selling 186 Hydro’s this year, two of them coming just last week:

1978, 3,325 hours, sold: $20,000 – 11/15/14 farm sale northeast North Dakota


1978, 2,347 hours, sold: $20,500 – east-central Minnesota farm auction 11/14/14


 1980, 6,286 hours, sold: $18,000 – northeast Iowa farm auction 3/22/14

MP31981, 2,542 hours, sold: $24,000 – northwest New Jersey farm auction 1/6/14


Still six weeks left here in 2014. Any chance we’ll run across another 186 Hydro selling for big bucks?

    I have TWO Olivers wasting away because there’s no one willing to take them and love them! I live in California. I’d gladly trade for a small yard tractor that is MY size easy to maintain with a small attachment for turning over the soil again easy to use for this old lady.
