Auction report: Classic and modern John Deeres go under the hammer

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 bigger pool of equipment.

One such on-site sale was held at Eye Farm (Spalding) yesterday (May 10). The auction comprised of tractors, a combine harvester, a telescopic handler, a self-propelled sprayer and a scattering of implements and machinery. It took place in Lincolnshire (England).

The auction was conducted by Brown & Co.

This report focuses solely on the tractors and self-propelled equipment present. Look out for a follow-up article, detailing the prices fetched by implements and machinery at this auction.
