Auction report: A 7010 Series John Deere for £10,900; what’s the catch?

Monday, August 5, saw the latest monthly Cambridge Machinery Sales auction take place at Cheffins Auctioneers’ sale grounds in Sutton, Cambridge (England).

This report focuses on some of the John Deere tractors that went ‘under the hammer’, including an “unreserved” 7610 – a model that’s certainly rare here in Ireland or the UK (unlike the more powerful and sought-after 7710 and 7810).

In accompanying articles, we look at a variety of other brands – to see how they fared.

Tim Scrivener was at the auction for AgriLand to take these photographs and to note the key prices. All of the pictures in this report are from Monday’s auction.

All (hammer/sale) prices were subject to a ‘buyer’s premium’ of 2%.

All (hammer/sale) prices were also subject to VAT at the local rate (i.e. VAT must be added to all of the prices in the captions below).

Any statement of recorded hours may simply be a reflection of what was visible on the tractor’s odometer or, if that wasn’t available, what was claimed in the auction catalogue.
