Pics with Results-Consignment Sale at El Dorado Springs,


Well-known Member
Yesterday March 27th I attended the 52nd annual consignment auction held by Beatty Implement ...Its located 2 miles west of El Dorado Springs,MO on Hwy 54...It used to be held on Washingtons Birthday but was moved back some for better weather...It was a beautiful day with the temp around 70 degrees...As usual there was a huge crowd there..At one time a few new IH tractors were sold thru there and it was also once a White Farm Equipment dealer...The late Bill Beatty used to buy lots tractors out of central and western Kansas...It was nothing to see two loaded semis sitting there with 4 tractors on each one..Over the years thousands of tractors have gone thru there..

This is my first farming tractor ever...I purchased this 1968 model 856 IH at the Beatty Implement Company Washington's birthday sale in Feb 1974...I remember paying about what it sold for new....It had been a 12,000 lb SS pulling tractor from 1968-70 and I knew the tractor well..It had lots of mods done to it and could turn 190 horses in the field and almost twice that on the pulling track..When it was brand new it had a King Brothers IH pulling kit put on it at Arcola,Illinois....I used that tractor for both farming and pulling from 1974-1985 and it stayed together...With factory 24.5's on the inside and 18.4 duals on the outside it was almost impossible to get it stuck..I got called many times to pull out neighbors stuck tractors and combines...It still had the original TA in 1985 but every once in awhile it wouldnt shift to low.

The 856 in Feb 1974.

The restored B John Deere sold for $2,750..It needed some sheet metal and one new rear tire as the tube was showing...I guessed it under $2,000 and was I ever wrong..Standing beside the B is my former neighbor Wayne H whom lived less than 3 miles from me for lots of my life..He was Mr 8N Ford and over the years has owned and rebuilt 100's of them...Lots were basket cases...Last fall he had a sale and moved to town,...He was all alone as his wife had passed...I asked him if he liked living in town and he said it was OK as he no longer had a huge lawn to mow...He is 87 years old and has been to all 52 Beatty sales.
