Pics: Auction of fresh machinery in Tullamore today

A machinery auction is scheduled to take place later today (Thursday, July 27) at GVM Tullamore Livestock Mart, Tullamore, Co. Offaly.

Viewings prior to the sale have been ongoing since 10:30am this morning; the auction itself is set to begin at 1:30pm this afternoon.

According to GVM, the sale is taking place on the instructions of a local resident to the area, with no outside lots accepted for the auction.

There are some key attractions at the sale, which are likely to attract a local flurry of interest.

One of the stand-out items up for auction is a 2004 New Holland TM120, which has just 5,109 hours on the clock. It is described as being in “mint condition”, while a full service history is available.

Also up for auction will be a 2011 New Holland T5070 with a same-brand loader. There are 2,680 hours on this tractor, with tyres described as being “60%”. The loader includes a Quicke 6ft bucket and 5ft tine grab, described as being in “excellent condition”. Again, a full service history is available.
