I was there.They only sold maybe 50 of the parts tractors.They actually stopped selling each one and said is anybody interested in anything in this row,nobody was bidding on them.The rest are getting scrapped.The average for the snow plows blowers,and tillers were about $2 over half of them are being scrapped.Some of the ih and bolens attachments sold better.K301 k321 blocks highest was $40.They sold stacks of wheel weights Bolens weights sold pretty well.Simplicity weights were cheap for the amount in the stack.I got 13 stacks of various weights for $13.Not sure what they fit but i can use them.They would've been scrapped nobody else bid.I think some of the parts sold ok but probably lost a lot of money on them.At the begginning of the sale they said he has enough stuff to sell 2 or 3 more times if it does good.I don't think they'll be anymore auctions there.In my opinion it was a good sale to get stuff cheap,but very poor sale for the owner.I wish it was closer i would have bought more.Was also limited on time my daughter had a dance recital sat afternoon.

Some of the stuff that followed me home yesterday was.All the wheel weights i mentioned plus 3 Massey 7&8 weights.Worked out well i had 1 single already.That'll give me 4 sets of those total.I still need 1 more set for my 85.I also got a set of Massey split weights for the 12" wheels.They used them up to the 55 series.I paid a little bit more for them,but not much.A mighty mac sprayer.Pretty early model judging by the engine.Massey 620 snow blower,Massey snow plow,Jd 33 tiller,Jd flat fender blade.I took the camera along today to get pictures,but it didn't have batteries in it :wallbanging: .

I did recognize a guy that was there. I believe he is a member here but not positive.I think there was maybe 4 guys going after the bolens stuff.

Those blocks are sometimes pretty pricey. Only going to get more expensive and more rare

I don't really know him but by the way his post is worded he will use them for parts for his own tractors.

Been seeing a lot of tractors pop up online around that area for sale. I was wondering if they came from that sale
