An online machinery clearance auction as per instructions for the representatives of the late Edward (Ned) Allen of Irishtown, Dunlavin, Co Wicklow, is set to take place on Monday 15 February from 7pm.
The auction will contain tractors and an assortment of other farm machinery, with much of the kit described by auctioneer Michael Doyle as being very well maintained and mostly on-farm from new. The first part of the auction will contain approximately 80 lots with no reserve, while a further 40 outside lots will go under the hammer afterwards.
All lots have been moved to Tankardstown, Tullow, Co Carlow (R93 K519). In line with regulations, the auction will be conducted online through the Marteye app and no on-site bidding will take place.
Similar to his last number of auctions, Doyle has scheduled the auction to kick off at 7pm to try to accommodate those who don’t have time for a midday auction.
Some of the standout lots include a one-owner 2011 Massey Ferguson 5445 (4WD) with 3,059 hours; a one-owner 2006 MF 5455 (2WD) with 6,000hrs; and another one-owner 1993 Volvo L30 loader with 15,000 hours (engine reconditioned at 12,683 hours). Other lots include a 2004 Land Rover Defender, a JF 1050 trailed harvester and a 2015 Keenan Mech Fiber 320 diet feeder.
The remaining lots on offer include a selection of farm machinery, tools, plant and livestock equipment. Commission will be charged at a rate of 10% for items sold up to €1,000 and 5% above €1,000.
