The sale, run by auctioneers Stags will take place on 8 August at Rhode Farm, Bradninch, Cullompton with bidding kicking off at 11am.
A total of 15 tractors will be going under the hammer, including three Massey Ferguson T20s, three 35s, a 35X with loader, a 165 and a 148. All are in good order, apart from one non-runner.
