The November Collective Machinery Sale was held at Sedgemoor Auction Centre on a cold but dry autumn day, which saw a large, quality entry of agricultural machinery and miscellaneous items with the headline price of £12,300 going to a Land Rover 110 Tipper. Other top prices saw a Massey Ferguson 240 2WD Tractor make £6,200, a Major 1700 Slurry Tanker make £6,200 and a Taarup Trailed 853 Straw Chopper reach £4,700.
Other machinery sold to £3,500 for a Lucas Castor 60R Trailed Straw Chopper, £3,300 for a Bomford B49 Hedge Trimmer, £2,800 for a McConnell PA96 Hedge Trimmer, £2,000 for a Twose Spider 4 Rotor Tedder and £1,500 for a Lucas G Raptor Mounted Straw Chopper.
Amongst the sale, there was an extensive range of livestock equipment, which always finds competitive bidding when offered at the Sedgemoor sales site. Competition was aplenty when a Galvanised Foot-trimming Crush achieved £950 and an IAE Creep Feeder sold to £700.
The sale also comprised a number of Ifor Williams trailers with the top price going to an Ifor Williams 12’ Cattle Trailer for £1,850, which was closely followed by an Ifor Williams Dropside Tipping Trailer sold for £1,800. An Ifor Williams E11 Car Trailer sold for £1,100 and an Ifor Williams Plant Trailer sold for £600.
