Tractor price triggers inflation alert

Don’t tell Dr Bollard, the latest bid on the International 574 tractor for sale on TradeMe is $230,200.

A tractor that old – I think it must be 30ish, would normally sell for about $5,000.

The farm which is being thrown in to the deal for free has a QV of $250,000.

The auction has attracted world-wide interest and the vendors have opted to reply to every question and comment. As I write, there have been 132,168 page views, which I think is a TradeMe record.
