I agree with DeltaRed. Though there are a few other ways to look at the value of equipment.
1. For some equipment it is a comparison of what it would cost you in materials, power, and lost production time to make it yourself.
2. Value the equipment as an input cost of what you are producing. There are times where I get home from the auction and wonder if I paid too much (based on comparing to other auctions, craigslist etc) and then calculate the return on what I plan on doing with the equipment and decided that the price was a good one afterall.

Most of the time for me, when I buy, it's high dollar, when trying to sell, at or below scrap price. lol.
