After a wet start to the week put a hold on drilling for many there were plenty of buyers at our recent machinery auction at Tivetshall St Margaret. The sale comprised a range of modern well maintained farm machinery largely from two local farms. With no smaller items the sale started on the field with a brisk trade for wheels and tyres reflecting the huge cost of replacing tractor and implement tyres. There was good demand for trailers and cultivation equipment with buyers coming from as far afield as Yorkshire and Cornwall, together with strong interest from on-line bidders via ibidder.
In the tractor section there were a number of JCB Fastracs which all found new homes. A tidy John Deere and two Claas tractors attracted strong bidding, all three ending up with farmer buyers. The last lot of the day was a speedboat on which the hammer finally fell at over £400!
The headline prices were:-
2011 Class Arion 640 £36,800; 2010 Class Arion 510 £23,500; 2000 John Deere 6620 £17,800; 2003 JCB Fastrac 2135 £12,000; 1999 JCB Fastrac 2135 £13,100; 2000 JCB Fastrac 2135 £13,350, 2001 Volvo EC55 digger £11,000; 2011 Sumo Trio £8,100; 2002 Gregoire Besson 5 furrow plough £4,100
