ON BEHALF OF THE LATE A L D “TONY” JENNINGS

DISPERSAL SALE OF TRACTORS & FARM MACHINERY

ON SATURDAY 28TH OCTOBER 2017

AT MOULTON WOOD YARD, MOULTON, NR NEWMARKET

 

Peter Crichton reports a highly successful and well attended auction to round off his busy 2017 season with over 120 registered buyers attending and every lot sold.

 

Although not a particularly large auction with around 130 lots on offer, there was plenty of interest in the slightly ageing range of farm machinery sold on behalf of the Late Tony Jennings, a much loved local farmer who was born in 1927 and had supplied milk and firewood to the villagers of Moulton for much of his working life.  

 

TRACTORS AND VEHICLES

Top price of the day was £9,100 paid for a 1981 MF69 2WD Tractor with Bomford B3512 power loader and bucket and 5,600 hours recorded.  Other tractors also sold at high prices bearing in mind their age with an MF675 2WD Tractor with 5,600 hours recorded selling at £5,100 and the same price was paid for an MF590 4WD tractor with Farmhand F12 loader and pallet tines, first registered in 1977 with 6,680 hours recorded.

 

An elderly 1978 Ford 555 2WD Digger with back actor realised £3,900, a 1972 2WD Leyland 270 tractor with 6,200 hours recorded made £2,080 and a 2WD Leyland 255 model with 8,300 hours on the clock sold for £900.  

 

Plenty of interest was shown in a 2002 Land Rover Defender 110 which could have been sold many times over and was finally knocked down at £7,600.  

 

A Kubota G1700 4ft cut ride-on diesel mower with 2,000 hours made £2,000 and a Honda 2213 ride-on mower made £460.

 

FARM MACHINERY

Most of the machinery in the sale, although ageing, met a useful enquiry with a top price of £1,120 paid for a Browns Saw Bench, a Kubota 5ft mounted topper made £800, a Wessex 12ft bat wing topper £380 and a selection of log splitters included a locally made version selling at £900, with other 3 point linkage mounted log splitters making £640, £550 and £400.  A selection of trailers most of which needed some repair or refurbishment work saw a Weeks 3.5t tipping trailer selling at £160 and other elderly trailers needing repair made between £50 and £130 but an old galvanised water cart which the new owners plan to use for floral displays sold remarkably well at £320.  A Howard 5ft Rotovator sold for £290 and a set of Montel mounted chain harrows £280.

 

GARDEN EQUIPMENT AND SUNDRIES

A well maintained selection readily sold with an early set of barn scales and weights realising £100, a collection of toplinks and other tractor parts £100, a Stihl Hedge Cutter £280, Stihl Battery Hedge Cutter £115, a Jonsered Chainsaw £230 and other chainsaws sold for between £50 and £90.  A range of garden mowers saw a top price of £240 paid for a Honda 476 mower.

 

Another busy year for Peter and his team with future auctions already booked for 2018; the first in spring near Mildenhall followed by our 7th Collective Auction at Warren Farm, Wetherden on the 16th

June and auctions of pig equipment as far afield as Ringwood in Hampshire.

 

Sadly, Polly the Collie RIP is no longer with us to join in the sales as a familiar and friendly face, gone but not forgotten.
