A huge array of mostly very modern contractor-owned tractors and machinery went under the hammer in England on Tuesday (June 5).
The auction was held on behalf of Leslie Brown Contracting at Westholme Farm, Winston, Darlington, Co. Durham.
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 tractors present. 18 went under the hammer in total; 15 of these are included in this report.
