Auction report: Pics and prices from Bord na Mona machinery sale

A sizeable, unreserved auction of tractors and farm machinery – organised by Bord na Mona – took place on Saturday, November 11, at its premises in Derrygreenagh, Rochfortbridge, Co. Westmeath.

Over 200 lots went under the hammer; some of the machines looked ‘the worse for wear’. However, everything was sold on the day. Some were bought by punters present on-site; others were bought by online or phone bidders.

Lots included tractors, excavators, bulldozers, trucks, trailers and other miscellaneous equipment – some of which was in a state of disarray.

According to Paul Cooke Auctions, a staggering 1,500 people attended the auction with 563 registered bidders present and a further 147 bidders trying to secure bargains remotely.
