Farm Sale Auctions

The combination of Whirledge & Nott's strength in the Essex market and Cheffins contacts in the international market recently joined forces at a farm disposal sale in Wickford, Essex.  The sale was held on the instructions of Strutt & Parker Farms Ltd and the Estate of R Wilson (deceased) and boasted some excellent tractors, materials handlers and machinery.

There was a wide selection of items ranging from typical farm disposal lots of bygones and 'pre-loved' equipment to modern surplus tractors and equipment introduced by other local vendors.  Bidding was seen from individuals at the sale ground, over the telephone and internet from all over the country and included 2 international bidders.

Of principle note was the record breaking price achieved for a 1982 956XL International.  Admittedly a run of the mill 956XL is not going to stir even the most die-hard classic tractor fan but this 33 year old tractor, purchased new by the farm, had amassed only 1,390 hours which equates to only about 42 hours per year!  This particular lot saw fevered bidding from a number of individuals at the sale ground, 3 telephone bidders and several internet bidders.  Bidding rose swiftly through obvious book value for this immaculate tractor and finally sold for a record breaking £26,250.
