Pics: More machinery wheels in for giant FTMTA auction

The Farm Tractor and Machinery Trade Association’s (FTMTA’s) monster machinery auction takes place tomorrow (September 30) at Punchestown Event Centre near Naas, Co. Kildare.

According to Paul Cooke Auctions – the company conducting the sale on behalf of the FTMTA – it will be an unreserved (‘no reserve’) auction.

AgriLand paid a visit to the site on Wednesday – and brought you a selection of pictures detailing just some of the many lots awaiting prospective buyers.

It’s not just about tractors of course; lots range from crates of spare parts right up to combines and forage harvesters. In all, there will be several hundred lots – most likely over 400, according to the auctioneers.

There will be a wide and varied selection of implements and machinery on offer too. Viewing is open from 8:30am at Punchestown tomorrow morning; the auction will kick off at 11:00am. To bid, you must be registered – on-site, online or through a ‘pre-bid’ service.

Two sales rings will operate on the day. One will be a ‘drive-through‘ auction, in which tractors and self-propelled equipment will parade through – one after the other.

The other sales ring will deal with other machines, implements and miscellaneous items. A picture of each lot will be displayed on a large screen, adjacent to this sales ring.

All of the lots being offered for sale will be on-site – at Punchestown. The actual selling will take place under cover, inside the event centre.
