I just got back from the auction and things went pretty cheap. The 444 Demonstrator " Black Knight" brought $250. The 646 industrial was the high seller at $450. Most 444s and 446s complete were in the $200 range with the 200 series in the $125 to $175 range. Sleeve hitch implements all went for about $50. There was six to eight pallets of used and NOS parts and wheels weights but I did not see them sell.

I met the first cousin of the collector all this belonged to and got the story on everything. He was such a great guy and full of information.. I get a sad feeling a lot of these might go to the scrapper because I saw two or three guys bidding that are known for that.

 If anyone here bought anything post it so we can all drool,lol.

Oh My Gosh, What a bunch of GREAT Bargains that were bought there. Glad I wasn't there in one way because I would have had to hire a tractor trailer to haul them all home. I hope you got some of those deals for yourself.

I bid on a few but money is tight until my wife gets out of school. I was saving to bid on on shop equipment and the owner no saled it. If I had known that earlier one or two of the Case machines would have came home with me but you never know beforehand.

Boy, that's a real shame. I know where the sale was, I used to live a couple hours away in N.C. and used to go that way when the Lake Ocoee road was closed.

Sad indeed I've never seen a demonstrator go for that kind of price let alone 646 for under $500. I feel bad for her this sale has been noted on every case forums I know of I would have thought more collectors would have showed up just for the demonstrator.

Here are a few pics from Saturdays auction. The black one is the Demonstrator that Snuffy bought. The 448 was really nice but I backed off after I could not get the crank to turn. I really should have bought that one :(  All those pallets were loaded with parts,parts, and more parts! The 446 in the last pic is the other tractor Snuffy bought ,I think.  I believe he should have bought a lottery ticket on his way home with the luck he had Saturday.
