The auction saw a total of 532 purchasers from Poland, Republic of Ireland, Scotland, Peterborough, Swindon, Worcester, Wales, Nottingham, Herefordshire, Gloucestershire, Hampshire, Twickenham, Berkshire, Cornwall, Somerset, Dorset, Devon and everywhere in between!

The top call was seen for a 2014 New Holland T5.105 4WD Tractor which despite a lot of interest and enquires was unsold at the fall of the hammer. However, it was promptly sold post sale with a member of the team helping the vendor to achieve £30,750 with the tractor making its way to Ireland to serve its new owner. Next up, the 2017 Herbst HAC700 Crusher, which received 25 bids and sold for £30,250.

On the night a low houred 2017 Valtra A73 4WD Tractor made £18,000 with the relatively basic model of tractor staying local in the county of Cornwall. Trailers saw a top price of £11,500 for a 2014 NC 14T Silage Trailer, the price driven up by Polish interest, was sold from a farm in Witheridge. Machinery topped at £10,250, 3 times on the night.

1438 Lots were sold in the auction, meaning a 69% success rate on items listed in the auction. Auctioneer Harvey Pile FLAA commented ‘’We are proud of the continued success our South West Online Sales are achieving for 100’s of vendors across multiple counties. Our challenge in what is a solid but slightly depressed, machinery and equipment market is to advise clients honestly on realistic reserves that offer protection to items, but do not put purchasers off who make enquiries during the process. Sensibly priced, genuine and well-presented equipment will always sell well and it pays to be realistic and trust the powerful marketplace we have built’’
