Major “on-site” machinery dispersal sale (auction) events come up just a handful of times in any given year here in Ireland; they are a more regular occurrence in the UK – thanks to the availability of a larger pool of equipment.
One such on-site sale was held on behalf of the so-called ‘Home Farm’ last week (October 26); the auction comprised of tractors, implements, trailers and other machinery.
Some workshop items also went under the hammer. It took place near Towcester, Northhamptonshire (England).
According to the auctioneer, some 150 farmers and contractors registered to bid. There were also some phone bidders on the day.
The auction was conducted by Fisher German.
Tim Scrivener was at the sale for AgriLand; he sampled the atmosphere, captured these insightful pictures and jotted down the key prices and specifications.
