Auction report: Bids aplenty for massive John Deere collection
A selection of classic and vintage tractors – mostly John Deere models – went under the hammer in England on Saturday (June 16).
The auction involved the sale of the Bowen-Jones Collection. It was held at Tiffield, Towcester, Northants (England).
Major ‘on-site’ machinery dispersal sales 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 bigger pool of equipment.
This report focuses on the older John Deere tractors present at the auction. Look out for accompanying reports, detailing how other tractors (including some later-model John Deeres) fared.Also Read: Auction report: A bargain…or was this line-up simply too ‘Deere’?
