Auction report: Perched for a bargain at this big ‘ex-demo’ sale?

An auction involving JCB equipment was held on Tuesday, September 24.

The venue was Wardlow Quarry, Cauldon Lowe, Staffordshire (England) – a different location to that of previous such auctions. The sale was conducted by AMS (Asset Management Services) Auctions on behalf of JCB.

The catalogue was home to a varied selection of machines, attachments and components – the latter including some engines, gearboxes and axles.

Some of the machines were described as “ex-demonstration” units. All items were “sold as seen”. No warranty was implied or given.

Tim Scrivener was there for AgriLand to sample the atmosphere, capture the necessary pictures and to jot down the key prices and specifications.

This particular report focuses on some of the loading shovels that were up for grabs (including a number of industrial-spec units).

No buyer’s premium applied to any of the lots. However, prices were subject to VAT (i.e. VAT must be added to the hammer/sale prices below).

Any statement of recorded hours may simply be a reflection of what was visible on the machine’s odometer or, if that wasn’t available, what was claimed in the auction catalogue.
