Solutions for Farmers & Ranchers
Farmers live in a world of constant challenges. Multiple decisions must be made constantly and quickly. You need easy access to the most accurate information possible.
When it comes to decisions regarding your farm equipment, Iron Solutions®, with our IronSearch® and IronAppraiser℠ web tools and printed books, can help.
Perhaps you’ve heard of our book, IronSearch Buyer’s Guide, which provides a quick valuation for a long list of farm equipment or our IronGuides Buyer’s Guide for Tractors. For more detailed valuations, you can use our IronAppraiser web tool, which allows you to add your equipment’s options and adjust for machine hours. Then, when you are ready to trade equipment, go to our on-line marketplace, IronSearch.com.
Nearly half of all Farmers will invest in new equipment or technology each year. We’re here to help you obtain the best value for the equipment you have today and locate new equipment to make you more productive tomorrow.
Iron Solutions: Your Partner for Equipment ValuesFor generations, our data has helped you identify the best equipment, appraise it, negotiate with dealers, and ensure you get a fair price. Updated on a quarterly basis, our valuations are available on the internet and print — and we’re always evolving. Spanning seven regions of the U.S. and Canada, we cover most OEM brands, including AGCO, Buhler Versatile, Case IH, Challenger, Fendt, John Deere, Kubota, Massey Ferguson, McCormick and New Holland. We know incompatible software slows you down, so we’ve formatted our products for PC and Mac desktop computers, tablets and smartphones, along with our trusted paperback books.
Iron Products for Producers/Growers
IronAppraiser: IronAppraiser calculates the current market value of your used equipment. It looks at the prices of actual sales transactions in light of your equipment’s base specifications, options, and adjustments for condition and hours of use. You get far more than just an average of retail price listings, with valuations that account for the wide variability of factors involved in equipment sales.
Our competitors have long published imitation guides based only on advertised prices or on auction prices. IronGuides, however, uses actual dealer sales transaction data adjusted for options, usage and condition validated daily by experienced industry analysts. The values represent transactions between a willing buyer and a willing seller, not distressed sales.
IronSearch: Iron Search is our integrated online marketplace, available 24/7 to millions of worldwide viewers. Quickly and easily place equipment listings online to sell old equipment while also searching for the best prices and location of new and used equipment. You can use it to find a machine, appraise a machine or sell a machine from the convenience of your home or office.
IronSearch Buyer’s Guide: This print book includes specifications for major farm equipment manufactured in the past 50 years. It contains values on tractors, combines, balers, forage harvesters, mower conditioners, skid loaders, windrowers, and cotton harvesters. You can also find beginning year serial numbers and serial number locations when available. The values presented are High, Low and Average in US dollars and are updated annually.
