Auction report: John Deere highlights from monster May tractor sale
Monday of last week (May 14) saw the latest monthly Cambridge Machinery Sales auction take place at Cheffins Auctioneers’ sale grounds in Sutton, Cambridge (England).
These monthly sales can attract a huge number of lots, including tractors, construction equipment as well as farm and horticultural machinery.
They also attract Irish interest; some dealers, contractors and farmers journey across on a regular basis.
Tractors, plant and machinery offered for sale are consigned from private vendors, dealers (UK and overseas), local authorities and finance companies.
This report focuses on the modern John Deere tractors present; we look at a segment of what was on offer.
Tim Scrivener was there for AgriLand to sample the atmosphere, capture these pictures and to jot down the key prices. All the pictures in this report are from Monday’s auction.
Please note that all of the prices referenced below are in pounds sterling.
All (hammer) prices are subject to a ‘buyer’s premium’ of 2%. Prices are also subject to VAT at the local rate.
