The first collective machinery sale of the year through the ANM Group at Thainstone Centre, saw more than 2000 buyers and sellers in attendance for the 2500 items forward which saw an 80% clearance.

Consistent prices were achieved across all sections with the light commercial and 4x4 vehicles category seeing several lots sell in excess of high trade guide prices due to the scarcity of quality machines available in the wider market.

The top price of £39,000 came from a 2005 Beast Bandit 2680 shredder in the tractors and mobile plant section, followed by £20,500 for a Valtra T162 Versu 4WD tractor.

Light commercial and 4x4 vehicles were topped at £7800 by a Ford Transit 100 T350 double cab tipper, while a Land Rover Discovery TDV6 commercial auto realised £7500.

The trailers and containers category peaked at £3000 Ifor Williams 14’ tri axle livestock trailer, and a Scania R440 8x4 tipper went for £15,200 in the heavy commercials section.

Implements were led by a KV ED 100 five furrow reversible plough at £8400 and the small agri section had a Ritchie cattle crate achieve £2500.

The live and online event is hosted eight times per year at Thainstone Centre, with the sale well attended by both on-site and online buyers and sellers from across the UK and Ireland.
