Auction report: ‘Best of the rest’ from Irish contracting fleet sale

A major ‘on-site‘ machinery sale (auction) was held on behalf of David Hatton (who is retiring from his silage contracting activities) at Loggan, Gorey, Co. Wexford.

The auction took place today (Friday, February 16); it kicked off around 1:00pm.

Not surprisingly, much of the equipment up for sale was silage-related, but there were other lots in the mix too.

The sale drew a significant crowd – some partook and others watched from the sidelines; the venue was David’s premises.

The sale was conducted by Carnew Mart.

Justin Roberts was at the sale for AgriLand; he sampled the atmosphere, captured these insightful pictures and jotted down the key prices and specifications.

Here, in this article, we focus on the remaining machinery – what we like to describe as the ‘best of the rest’.

Several trailers (pictured above) were offered. Two (20ft) Broughans – both 2013 models and equipped with ‘wide’ tyres – were sold. One went under the hammer at €13,000; the other at €13,500.

A 22ft Broughan trailer – from 2009 – with grain/silage sides and a roll-up cover was sold. The hammer fell at €11,500.

A 24ft Broughan tri-axle trailer – from 2017 – with a roll-up cover and a steering axle failed to sell. Bidding topped out at €20,000. A deal was done after the auction; it changed hands for €22,000.
