Great results at Nottinghamshire farm machinery sale

March 2013

farm machinery sale

A flurry of farming activity following the recent dry spell set the scene for a highly successful farm machinery auction at Normanton Larches Farm in Nottinghamshire. 

A large number of prospective buyers arrived at the auction on 7 March held by Fisher German on behalf of the retiring tenant, Priors Park Farm Limited.
With many farmers up and down the country wondering how best to approach spring crop establishment, it was encouraging to see such a good turnout - not only from the local farming community, but also from buyers as far afield as the Scottish borders and Kent.
The successful sale saw 367 lots sell in 4 hours, with a good showing of high quality workshop equipment and tools being sold first making strong money. The demand for good quality workshop equipment was mirrored on the sale ground where the larger lots were sold -
  • 2007 George Moate RSE-Plus 360 Rotostone - £3200
  • Dowdeswell 3.6m Discs - £1300
  • Howard Selectatilth 3m Rotavator - £2550
  • McConnell Shakerator - £720
  • Flexicoil 6.3m Rolls - £3400
  • 1995 Kverneland 5F Plough - £2350
  • 1998 Accord 12 Row Beet Drill - £1950
  • 2 x 1990 Ken Wootton 9 tonne Dump Trailers - £1250 and £3400
  • Ken Wootton 9 tonne Grain Trailer - £1800
  • 2 x 1997 Twidale 12 tonne Root Trailers - £4350 and £4200
  • 2004 Richard Western Low Loader - £4700
Despite the persistent wet weather, irrigation equipment was also in high demand with a good selection of pumps, reels, pipes and attachments available. 297 5’ irrigation pipes made an average of £55 each; 2 x Jones Irrigation Reels £4400 and £4100 and 2 x 2001 Iveco Capari Irrigation Pumps with approximately 4000 hours £2700 and £3000.
The three main lots of the auction all generated good returns. A 1996 Caterpillar TH62 Telehandler with 6788 hours achieved £13,800 before being driven to its new home in Selby and a 1994 Riecam RBM300 ‘Former’ Beet Harvester with 7562 hours fetched £7,000 before being loaded on a lorry destined for a farm in Worcestershire. The final lot saw an immaculate 2007 Fendt Vario 716 TMS with 6000 hours reach a price of £43,500 before the hammer fell to conclude the sale.
Sam Skinner of auctioneers Fisher German, commented: “there is still a strong demand for honest and well maintained second hand farm machinery and this was reflected in what some lots made in particular”. 
Where farms are looking to restructure or change their farming methods, a farm machinery auction continues to provide arguably the most efficient way of disposing of equipment and the equipment for sale was a real credit to those involved in Priors Park Farm Limited”.
