The North Devon dispersal sale of high quality machinery sells nationwide

Stags auctioneers were privileged to be given instruction by Aylescott Feed and Driers to disperse their range of high-quality tractors, self-propelled forager, modern farm machinery and other grass related equipment. After 54 years of grass drying Alan Fraser-Smith along with his wife Susan and family took the decision difficult decision to cease the grass drying activity at Aylescott. The tractors and equipment had been looked after immaculately especially the forager and tractors which were serviced annually like clock work by Andrew Symons.

The star of the show and topping the sale at £112,000 was the 2018 New Holland FR650 Self Propelled forager, with just over 1300 engine hours and just shy of 900 cutting hours on the clock, this machine now makes its way to its new home in Carmarthen, Wales.

The final tractor in the line up and other T7 being the 200 series rang the bell at £46,000, this one being on a 2013 plate and 4,000 hours on the clock makes its way to Bristol.
