Mid Devon dispersal sale exceeds all expectations

Stags auctioneers report a flying trade for all the machinery and equipment at the dispersal held on behalf of Messrs AL Baker & Son at Chapelhaies Farm, Bradninch near Exeter last Wednesday 23 September.

Having sold the dairy herd earlier in the year and the duchy farm having been re-let it was now time to disperse the machinery at what must be a very poignant time for the Baker Family. All salegoers observed the Covid-19 rules and regulations really well allowing the sale to keep moving forward without delays.

Topping the day at £35,000 was the 2015 JCB 536-60 Telehandler with just over 5,000 hours on the clock. There was an excellent line up of four John Deere tractors all with high hours around 10,000 which topped at £19,500 for the 2005 6820 model; which was closely followed at £19,000 for the 1999 6310 Premium with loader.

 It would be fair to say that the farm machinery sold exceptionally well. Top was £8,000 for the 2014 Hi Spec 2300 gallon Vacuum Tanker.

There was a top line up of trailers which sold to £6,500 for the 2005 11 Tonne QM11 Grain & Silage Trailer. Other lots sold on behalf of the Baker Family included £1,800 for the 20’ shipping container; £1,500 for the Cherry Products 7’6” Muck Grab; £720 twice for a pair of John Shepherd Cattle Feed Trailer; £700 for a Bateman Calf Weigher and 11 Calf-Tel Calf Hutches topped at £470 for five.

There was a decent run of entries from local farms and prices included £5,200 for a Richard Western Silage Trailer; £3,400 for the 1995 Quivogne Disc Harrows and £2,700 for a 2009 Honda TRX400 Quad Bike.
