Stags On Site Sales team had a busy day at the annual Collective Machinery sale at Woodovis Farm, Lamerton, near Tavistock. It was the third sale at the farm, held by kind invitation of the Hamilton family. Just over 850 lots were forward and following the previous downpours, although it did rain most of the day it wasn’t too bad.
Again a large crowd assembled and were parked safely despite the gateways getting very muddy. The days top price was £9,600 for the 1996 JCB Sitemaster Plus Digger despite having the head gasket gone and going to its new home in Gloucester. Close behind at £9,500 was the Case International 844 2WD Tractor being quite rare and only having done approximately 1400 hours. Topping the machinery prices was £6,500 for an approx. 4-5 years old Protech P400S Contractor Post Rammer; and topping the trailer section at £5,000 was a 2017 Portequip 26ft Bale Trailer. There were a number of RTV and Quad Bikes at the sale and top price went to a 2011 John Deere 855D Gator at £4,500; with another 2011 John Deere 855D realising £4,400. Other notable prices included £4,050 for a Delbo Maxiroll 760; £3,400 for a 1990 Zetor 7245 4WD Tractor c/w loader and £3,000 for a Wootton 10 Tonne Silage Trailer.
