Yesterday I attended a huge farm auction near Blue Mound,Kansas..On it were 12 old tractors with 6 of them being Cockshutts and Coops...They forgot to tell a guy he needed to bring a chain saw..

1-Cockshutt 570 with engine full of water sold for $1500..A scrap buyer was runner-up bidder.

2-Cockshutt 560 diesel with loader sold for $900..

3-E-3 Coop sold for $750..This and the above two tractors went to a Cockshutt collector..

4-E-3 Coop sold for $700 and went for scrap..

5-E-3 Coop LP went for scrap at $450..

6-E-3 Coop at another farm 1/4th mile away went for scrap..We were busy and got down there right after it sold..I assume it went for around $700.

Its hard to compete with scrap buyers willing to pay $300-350 a ton..If you want to see what other stuff at the sale sold for go to the combine forum..

Interesting. I'm surprised those Co-ops went for scrap at that price I think they would all have found a home with collectors up here. Pretty decent sheet metal on them and that brings good money by itself.

I have seen the price of 30s drop. Personally they are not my favorite at all of the Cockshutts, that and they made the most of them.

My theory is, a lot of restored Cockshutts have come up for sale lately, estates etc, and I have a feeling there will be more auctions in the next 10 years. Why buy a parts tractor when you can buy a restored one for a couple thousand more? Just my thoughts. (I am 30 and own 9 Cockshutts)

None. The only place I have seen the propane tractors is in the parts book. Propane never made much of a showing around here.

I guess it depends if a person is restoring tractors for financial reasons, or other reasons, like me.

I wish I could afford to restore them, I did my grandfathers for it had meaning. Now I try to find nice originals for they are only original once. I don't think I could ever restore one and resell it, would become too attached and I would lose my butt!
