The Star Early Edition - - SPORT -

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.

A 2015 Hyno 500 1626 drop side rigid truck: R670 000.

A 2014 UD GW26-140 truck trac­tor: R500 000.

A Lan­dini Tech­no­farm R-60 trac­tor: R165 000.

A 2014 Ker­ney side-tip­per link trailer: R100 000.

Park Vil­lage Auc­tion’s next truck and trailer auc­tion will be held on Septem­ber 14 at 10.30am.

A wide va­ri­ety of bank-re­pos­sessed truck trac­tors, yel­low metal, “rigids” and trail­ers as well as other as­sets is ex­pected to be on of­fer.
