Auction report: Flurry of Fords in search of buyers at rain-sodden sale

Monday, December 3, saw the latest monthly Cambridge Machinery Sales auction take place at Cheffins Auctioneers’ sale grounds in Sutton, Cambridge.

This report focuses on the Ford tractors that were on offer. In accompanying articles, we look at other brands. As you’ll see from our pictures/captions, quite a few of these lots failed to sell on the day.

Tim Scrivener was there for AgriLand to take these photographs and to note the key prices. All of the pictures in this report are from Monday’s auction.

All (hammer) prices are subject to a ‘buyer’s premium’ of 2%.

Prices are also subject to VAT at the local rate (i.e. VAT must be added to all of the hammer/sale prices in the captions below).

Any statement of recorded hours may simply be a reflection of what’s visible on the tractor’s odometer or, if that’s not available, what’s claimed in the auction catalogue.
