The July Collective Machinery sale was held at Sedgemoor Auction Centre on a warm, blustery summer’s day, which saw a decent quality entry of agricultural machinery and miscellaneous items. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the auction was not held in the usual way, two metre social distancing rules were in place and the auction was held in the function hall at the livestock market with all items being sold from the rostrum. Each lot was displayed on a screen during the sale and itemised catalogues were produced to aid potential purchasers.

The headline price of £13,500 went to a John Deere 6810 4WD Tractor complete with loader. Other notable prices saw a JCB Handler make £12,800, a Ford 6640 Power Star Dual Power 4WD Tractor reach £9,600, a John Deere 2550 2WD Tractor make £4,750 and a Massey Ferguson 35X 2WD Tractor reach £3,400.  

Within the machinery lines saw an Amazone 3000 Power Harrow make £4,000. £2,600 was achieved for an Amazone Drill Star RPD, £2,400 for a McConnel PA95 Hedge Trimmer, £1,800 for a Kuhn 5 Furrow Plough, £1,700 for a John Deere 456A Conventional Baler and £1,700 for a Muthing Offset Topper.
