Auction report: Deere 5020 pulls the punters; what did it make?

A major auction was hosted by Clarke & Simpson (May 26) in Suffolk (England).

A huge haul of lots was up for grabs – including combines, tractors, plant machinery and implements.

The haul of equipment also included wheels/tyres and spares.

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.

Tim Scrivener was at the sale for AgriLand; he sampled the atmosphere, captured these pictures and jotted down the key prices.

This report focuses on the vintage/classic tractors offered on the day.

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