Hybrid machinery auction in May 2022
Over 200 lots will come under the hammer at Bord na Móna’s forthcoming tractor and specialist equipment auction.
It has appointed Wilsons Auctions to sell agricultural machinery from its Derrygreenagh site in Co. Offaly at 10 am on Saturday, May 14th, 2022.
Presented with live online bidding, registered bidders will be able to live-stream the auction and bid online with a virtual auction experience.
According to organisers, over 70 tractors will feature in the large volume of surplus stock.
Some of the best-known tractor manufacturers – such as New Holland, John Deere, Massey Ferguson, and Ford – are in the line-up.
Wilson Auctions and Bord na Móna believe this is a “brilliant opportunity for anyone looking for quality and used agricultural stock”.
The historic Wagonmaster Locomotives will also be available to bid on in the May online auction.
Built between 1961 and 1986, you often saw these locomotives working around Bord na Móna’s railway network. According to the company, these “one-of-a-kind assets” are ideal for a range of uses and also attractive to locomotive enthusiasts.
