April 2021 Plant Auction Report
A grand entry of quality used plant & equipment was gratefully received by the wide audience of the auction. Fantastic to see so many nations partaking of the sale with bidders from Poland, Lithuania, Croatia, Latvia, Romania, Australia, Moldavia, Bulgaria & the Czech Republic as well as bidders from all over the UK & Ireland including the usual local support.
Top prices this time were £34,500 for a council entered John Deere 6330 Tractor sold complete with loader. A 2019 Bobcat E10 Mini Digger with 3 buckets made £15,000 (not far off new money if you can source them!) & £13,800 for a 2011 JCB 515-40 Compact Telehandler. Other council entries sold in advance of expectations with a CAT CB24B Twin Drum Roller making £10,200 & £7,600 for a Kubota B1700 Compact Tractor complete with Loader. Rounding off the larger outside items was a John Deere Gator selling to £7,000 producing £1000 profit after approx 30 months use.
