Cheffins’ Cambridge Vintage Sale at Sutton, near Ely, took place last week, from 17 to 22 July. The July sale was the first to accept bids solely online or by proxy over a three-day period. With over 1,300 lots up for grabs, over 700 registered buyers from throughout the UK, USA and Europe were keen to get their hands on a bargain.

It is understood that a clearance rate of over 75% was achieved, with lots still selling by private treaty post sale. The Irish Farmers Journal understands that half a dozen vintage tractors at the sale were sold to Irish buyers.
