Thank you for letting me know what the backhoe brought, that was a pretty good chunk of change all things considered.

Auctions that charge a buyer's premium really get under my skin, I try to avoid buying anything from them on principle.


Not many left around here that doesn't hit the seller 10% on the front end and the buyer 10% on the back end, internet buyers 12%. Tyler Brothers machinery auction is 8-18-18 at Maryville, Tennessee just outside Knoxville that doesn't charge a buyers premium and usually has a big sale. I would like to go.

I don't go to buyers penalty auctions. They charge the seller and buyer in which I don't agree with. I wish everyone would stop going to buyers penalty sales.

I had to pay a buyers premuim as I went to the Proteam auction, but I thought I did well, I got MS440, MS391, MS311 with all like new compression. I have worked on junk like this for years and all three are repaired and ready go. I got the MS440 25" bar (very sweet little saw)for $210 (stole it basically). Only one other guy bid against me on them (big crowd there).

Nice saws I'm glad you did well but I just can't deal with buyers premium

On the buyers premium you just have to keep it in your mind while bidding that it is part of the final price. I bid on a 3000 ford tractor mint condition for the model year and when it got to the point with the premuin added, the worth in my mind I stopped. It was a cream puff for the model as I test everything, also had hydraulics, new Interstate battery. The brakes, steering, clutch, PTO, lift arms etc. etc. work as they should with actual 1500 hrs.

When I was there looking around on the day before the auction, I saw those saws and thought of you! I am glad you picked them up!

I thought they would sell higher, but all went on the low side I thought. It is kinda like buying a pig in a poke as there can be a lot wrong with them and parts are expensive.
