For the 3rd time in a row, the Stags On Site Sales team were blessed with sunshine on the day of the sale. Instructed to disperse a vast and mostly modern selection of machinery by Messrs Skinner & Son, the team had a view of the Exmouth coastline whilst carrying out the sale of 700 lots that included 6 Tractors.
Messrs Skinner & Son are re-locating to a farm in the North East of the country, prompting the decision to refine their extensive range of machinery and Equipment. Top price achieved on the day was £22,000 for a 2009 John Deere 6430 with 6500hrs on the clock. Other high prices included £11,900 for the 2002 Terex Arctic Steer Handler which had been well used and was showing 7500hrs. The last Tractor to get a mention was the 1983 Ford 4610 Tractor with a reconditioned engine that sold well and achieved a price of £4000.
The wide range of machines and equipment also sold well with a few exceptional prices achieved. The 2008 Pichon Slurry Tanker was sold for £8500 and was bought by a nearby farmer also located in the Exmouth area. The Kverneland EG85/300 SF Vari Width 5 Furrow Reversible Plough reached £5000 with the Kuhn Power Harrow achieving £5400. The sort-after 2014 Galvanised Marshall 105 Spreader will be travelling up to Gloucestershire and was sold for £5300. The Kongskilde Grain Blower achieved £1300 a strong price for the machine and the 54 IAE Single Calf Pens sold in various different lot sizes equated a total of well over £4000 and were fiercely bid for by perspective purchasers.
The sale saw a good attendance although having to contend with the perfect dry spell for harvesting that first crop of grass with rain forecast for the following day.
