A major machinery auction will be hosted next month by auctioneer Cheffins – on behalf of a farming couple who are emigrating to start farming in New Zealand.
More than 150 lots will go under the hammer on Tuesday 13 September at New Farm, Cow Lane, Rampton, Cambridgeshire. Highlights will include various tractors, a combine harvester and a forage harvester. Also available will be numerous implements
Star lots are three John Deere tractors – a 2022 6195R with an estimate of £110-£120k); a 2016 6195R (£50-60k); and a 2011 7530 (£35-£40k); There is also a 2009 Claas Jaguar 690 forager (£60-£70k); and a 1998 New Holland TX68 24ft combine (£18-£20k).
Scott and Sarah Haywood, of Haywood Farms, Rampton, instructed the disposal sale after deciding to make a new life for themselves in New Zealand. Sarah said:
“We feel Cheffins will be able to sell our machinery to its full potential.”
Cheffins associate Charles Wadsley said Haywood Farms was a well-respected business. The catalogue includes a diverse selection of well-maintained machinery, a sprayer, drill and various implements.
Mr Wadsley said: “With a shortage of quality second-hand agricultural machinery on the market, coupled with long lead times for new kit, we expect this sale to be of great interest for both farmers and dealers.”
