The sale was held on 21 January, at the Euro Auctions site in Dromore, County
The sale was held on 21 January, at the Euro Auctions site in Dromore, County Tyrone. This was a very special consignment of exceptional quality machinery with 160 pieces of agricultural machinery and attachments going under the hammer.
Well-maintained machinery sold in this one-day sale included harvesters, tractors, wheeled loaders and telehandlers, slurry tankers, silage trailers, pumps, balers, rakers and mowers.
With a big crowd on-site, floor bidding was strong on the day, but it was internet biding that proved the strongest with 70 per cent of the hammer total being bought online.
The total number of registered bidding accounts for this sale reached almost 1,000 with 82 per cent of bidders registering to bid online.
Bidders registered for this sale from 44 countries. There were bidders from across Europe, the Middle East, including Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Lebanon, and other far off countries including Australia, New Zealand and Canada and, on the African continent, Ghana, Tanzania and Kenya were represented.
The local audience were the most determined with the top buying region being the Republic of Ireland, including some of the big-ticket items like the Krone Big M, the John Deere 6250R and the JCB419S. Some of the other lots ended up going further afield, with the Claas Jaguar 970 harvester bought by a company registered in China, and the Claas Jaguar 950 harvester heading to Belgium.

Raymond Donnelly, manager of the sale, commented: "The inventory for this sale was of a very high standard and we knew there would be a huge amount of interest, not just locally, but from buyers globally.
"With such a line-up of 2018 to 2022 plate machines in excellent overall condition we knew this sale would draw much attention and we had bidders from 44 countries. That said, at all Euro Auctions sales in 2022, the home market seems to bid stronger and harder, with the UK and Republic of Ireland winning 90% of all lots."Hammer prices of stand-out lots include: Self-Propelled Harvesters Tractors Wheeled Loaders Telehandlers Tankers & Trailers Rakers, Balers, Mowers
