This report focuses on blue-liveried machines (i.e. Ford and New Holland, plus a black-liveried Valtra thown into the mix for good measure).

These monthly sales attract Irish interest; some dealers, contractors and farmers journey across on a regular basis. All the pictures in this report are from Monday’s auction.

On Monday, there was a varied selection of tractors on offer – classic and modern units. These were sold via a live ‘drive through’ American-style auction.

Tim Scrivener was there for AgriLand to sample the atmosphere, capture these pictures and to jot down the key prices and specifications.

Please note that all of the prices referenced below are in pounds sterling.

All prices are subject to a ‘buyer’s premium’ of 2%. Prices are also subject to VAT at the local rate.
