Farm vehicles fetch ‘fantastic’ prices at auction
Investments made are a ‘postive sign’
LAST week’s successful truck and trailer auction showed positive agricultural sentiments all around, says LeRoy Augustyn of Park Village Auctions
“The auction was well attended, leading to fantastic prices for farm equipment across the board,” he said.
“This is a positive sign that farmers recognise the value for money that auctions offer, and see auctions as a smart and sustainable way towards further investment in their farms.”
Noteworthy sale prices (excluding VAT) recorded at the auction last Thursday included:
A 2013 Volkswagen 4.250 drop-side rigid truck with crane: R860 000.
A 2015 John Deer 612C 12-row corn header: R375000.
