December 2010

An increasingly strong market for used farm machinery created a staggering amount of interest at a recent farm dispersal auction near Newark.

The sale at Willoughby Farm, Norwell, saw approximately 600 requests for sales brochures leading up to the sale with around 350 registering for buyers numbers on the day. Purchasers came from far and wide, travelling from as far as County Durham, London and North Wales.

The well maintained equipment for sale was a real credit to the partners of R J Gent and Sons who are retiring from farming, and Platts Harris at Tuxford who have maintained the kit throughout.

The successful sale saw 288 lots sell following a very busy viewing day prior to the sale. Items that sold included a McConnell PA93 hedge cutter made £3,100; a Kvernland 4 furrow plough £1,750; a Kuhn HR 3500 power harrow £2,300; a Kvernland Accord Ferrag Pneumatic DL 4m drill £2,400; an ACE muck spreader reaching £1,550.

An in-test Hardi LY1000 mounted sprayer was sold for £2,400 and a 2009 Reco Sulky fertiliser spreader made £1,825. A near new set of Shelbourne Reynolds Parimeter 5m grass harrows finally went for £2,650 with a 2005 Elho 1520 Bale Wrapper making £3,200.

Further lots were sold as follows: a 2007 Kvernland Taarup 1118 drum mower £1,250; a 1997 Haybob 380 PZ Greenland hay bob £2,000; a 2007 Teagle Tomahawk 8080 bale spreader £7,650; a 2007 New Holland BR750A round baler £12,000; a 1983 Ifor Williams GP120 livestock trailer £1,500; a 2006 Graham Edwards DM12T £2,400; a 1985 Bailey 14 tonne grain trailer £5,600.

1987 AS Marston 10 tonne grain trailer £4,100; an AS Marston 8 tonne dump trailer £3,200; a 2008 Kawasaki Quad £3,200, a 1997 JCB 526-S Turbo Farm Special Loadall £14,600; a 1992 and 1989 Massey Ferguson 3060 tractors £6,100 and £4,600 respectively; a 2003 New Holland TL100 tractor with Quickie Loader £22,800; a 2008 New Holland T6070 tractor with 990 hours £34,600.

But the final lot of the day was a fine example of a 1988 New Holland Clayson 8040 combine harvester which, with just 1400 hours on the clock, was finally sold for £16,000 - its new home being a small mixed farm in Cumbria.

Ian Calverley, of auctioneers Fisher German, comments “We are beginning to see a trend with farm machinery sales. There has been a huge rise in demand for second hand farm machinery which prompted such a high turnout. High quality machinery is highly sought after with good prices still being obtained, even if we are in a perceived economic downturn”.

The next farm machinery sale to be held by the Fisher German Retford office is in Normanton, Southwell. For further information please contact either Ian Calverley or Sam Skinner at Fisher German on 01777 861927.
