Rare JD 6030 selling at auction April 16
A very rare John Deere 6030 tractor is selling at auction April 16 near Wilson, Kan.
The tractor, a big 2-wheel drive, is one of 45 ever made, according to the auction company, Carr Auction of Larned, Kan.
The auction is for the William "Bill" Malir Estate. Neighbor Harry Swart, who is doing a lot of the heavy lifting in preparation for the auction, says the tractor was bought new in 1973.
"Mechanically, it's in excellent condition," Mr. Swart said. "It's a pretty classic tractor. It would go to the field tomorrow."
Anyone with questions about the tractor can call Mr. Swart at 785.658.6265. Questions concerning the auction should be directed to auctioneer Chris Froetschner at 620.285.3148.
