Wilsons will auction more than 70 tractors among 200 items of unused equipment to be sold at the Bord na Mona site in Derrygreenagh, or scrapped.
The auction will take place on Saturday 14 May in Derrygreenagh, Ireland. You can also bid online.
The range of machines up for sale will mainly be tractors ranging from 45hp to 145hp and will include three main manufacturers: New Holland, Massey Ferguson and John Deere, the latter offering a range of 6830 machines in various versions. Part of the auction is a realistic way to buy an assistant at a below-market price.
Wilsons describes the sale as “a brilliant opportunity for those looking for quality and second-hand farming equipment”.
Wilsons’ roadshow auction is scheduled to open at 10am, with the first lot to be sold under the hammer at 10am on Saturday 14 May. Registered bidders will be able to bid live and online via a virtual auction. For more information, visit the Wilsons Auction website.
As well as tractors at the Derrygreenagh unwanted machinery auction, other assets from the 200 lots will be available to buy, including a range of specialist equipment, Fuel Bowser service vans, a JCB telehandler, a large selection of tyres, spare parts, attachments and much more. Several historic Wagonmaster locomotives will also be available. These locomotives, built between 1961 and 1986, were often seen working on the Bord na Mona railway network and have become part of the landscape.
Ricky Wilson, director and auctioneer at Wilsons Auctions, said:
“There is a huge demand in the market today for quality used equipment and this auction will be a great opportunity for the farming community, businesses as well as private buyers. Tractors really appeal to everyone.”
Once again, we would like to remind you that the auction of used special equipment will take place on Saturday 14 May at 10:00 a.m. The lots can be viewed in advance from 9 May to 12 May from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., but strictly by appointment.
