Auction report: Eyeing up a tractor bargain like a ‘hawk’?

An auction involving the disposal of a considerable fleet of tractors and equipment from the UK-based Hawk Plant hire group is ongoing – yesterday (March 14) and today (March 15).

Along with a very significant number of plant/construction machines, well over 100 tractors are up for grabs. In fact, the tractors have already been sold – having changed hands yesterday.

Tim Scrivener was there (at Charleston House, Cruckmoor Lane, Prees Green, Whitchurch, Shropshire) for AgriLand. He snapped these shots as proceedings unfolded.

The sale was conducted by Euro Auctions.

Here, in this report, we focus on just some of the tractors that were present. Interestingly, the three (2017) JCB Fastrac 4220 tractors detailed below were all bought by the same buyer – for the same price (despite each tractor having different hours under its belt).

A ‘buyer’s premium’ of 2.5% (plus VAT) must be added to the hammer prices (below).

Hammer prices are also subject to VAT at the local rate (i.e. VAT must be added to all of the hammer prices below).
