Auction report: Gambling on ‘terracotta’…at big Bord Na Móna sale?

Bord Na Móna played host to an auction of “surplus-to-requirement” tractors and machinery yesterday (Saturday, September 14).

The sale was conducted by Wilsons Auctions.

It took place at Bord Na Móna’s site in Blackwater, Co. Offaly; proceedings kicked off at circa 11:00am. The auction was open to both physical and online bidders.

The catalogue (of lots) included a significant number of Fiat (Fiatagri), Ford, Massey Ferguson and Landini tractors.

This report focuses on some of the Fiat (Fiatagri) models that were up for grabs (excluding the 65-94 models, which are covered in an accompanying report), along with a couple of terracotta-liveried New Hollands.

It should be noted that many of the tractors present (at the sale) were in varying states of repair or, in some cases, disrepair. Some were runners; some were non-runners; others were missing major components.

Lots were “sold as seen” and were subject to 23% VAT (i.e. VAT must be added to the hammer/sale prices below).

Lots sold at €1,000 or under were subject to (buyer’s) commission of 10% (plus VAT).

Lots sold at €1,001 or over were subject to (buyer’s) commission of 5% (plus VAT).
