Shrewsbury Auction Centre, Shropshire Bidders from the UK and Ireland fought hard for 1,000 lots of agricultural machinery and plant at Friday’s (5 October) sale.
“Genuine machinery straight from the farm was particularly sought after and buyers seemed happy to do minor restoration work,” said Matt Williams, Halls’ auction co-ordinator.
A New Holland TS110 tractor commanded the day’s top price of £15,500, with a JCB 526 Loadall fetching £9,950. The plant section was headed by a JCB 3CX Sitemaster, which made £9,400.
Other top prices included £3,500 for a JCB 410 loading shovel, and £1,900 for a Bobcat skidsteer loader.
A large entry of Ifor Williams trailers peaked at £2,700 for a 14ft triple axle stock trailer, with muckspreaders selling to £1,600.
