|  August 07, 2012 |

As highlighted in the August issue of Equipment World, trend prices for the top 10 grader models sold at auction are on the upswing, but still have a ways to go from their five-year-plus peak of $156,585 in February 2007.

According to the TopBid auction price service, the top auction price during the May 2011-May 2012 period was paid for a 2008 Caterpillar 14M at a Cat Auction Services auction on Feb. 28, 2012. Local governments are still the top grader buyers today, as they were in 2007. Click on the link below to view the infographic:
