130 tractors up for grabs in Hawk Plant dispersal

A huge dispersal sale to be held by Euro Auctions is due to take place in Shropshire to sell the assets of Hawk Plant Hire, which went into administration on 14 January this year.

Hawk was one of the UK’s leading plant and agricultural equipment hire companies and possessed a modern fleet of kit, with the tractor stock mainly newish John Deeres – the oldest is 2016-built and most are still under warranty.

The inventory includes more than 2,000 items, including 70 telehandlers (mainly JCB), 80 agricultural dump trailers and water bowsers from 750 litres up to 7,500 litres.

Friday is the day for heavy construction equipment at Sandford Industrial Park in Whitchurch.
