On Monday the 5th of September, Cheffins will hold a bumper monthly sale as the second-hand market continues to thrive. Hosted at the company’s dedicated saleground at Sutton, near Ely, the September sale is set to be one of the largest of 2022 with over 2,000 lots consigned for sale.
Joe Page, director, Cheffins commented: “The second-hand machinery market has boomed throughout 2022. The recent figures from the Agricultural Engineers’ Association have shown that new tractor sales were down by 4.7 per cent in July, in comparison to 2021, and with this has come an increased demand for quality second-hand machinery.
“Ongoing supply chain issues, with longer wait times for the delivery of new machinery has meant that both more dealers and farmers are looking to second hand sales to replenish stocks.”
Highlights include a 2020 JCB 8026 CTS digger; a selection of John Deere 6215Rs and a 2018 Massey Ferguson 7718. There will also be an 18m Househam self-propelled sprayer, coming directly from a local farm, and a John Deere 1177 Hydro 4 combine harvester.
Mr Page continued: “The September sale sees a large catalogue, with a number of lots consigned directly from local farms. This is set to be one of our largest monthly sales this year, and we are set to see a number of farmers and trade buyers online and onsite throughout the day. There is a strong entry of both agricultural and plant machinery, and we also expect the overseas buyers to be out in force, looking for machines prime for export.”
