The presentation of well-maintained machinery and sundries was a highlight of this Woodanilling clearing sale.

JUST two hours was all Landmark auctioneer Mark Warren needed to clap his hands through all 169 lots of Crosby family gear and livestock at their on-property sale at Woodanilling recently.

It was a neat presentation of well maintained sundries, plant and machinery – however it was no place for anybody but a New Holland lover at the ‘business end’ of the catalogue.

The stand-out item was a New Holland TJ375 tractor (3451 hours) with Trimble guidance.

It easily drew attention from the crowd who kicked off the bidding with an opening nod when Mr Warren called $80,000 but after a bit of coaxing, he called the final bid from Jerramungup at $100,000.

A 10.9 metre Bourgault 8810 bar and Boughault 5195 7000 litre air seeder with a 1600L liquid tank, which was set up for variable rate seeding, also drew solid bidding, selling to the same buyer for $78,000.

A 36m Hardi Commander 6500 trailed boomsprayer, with seven section autoswitch and Farmscan monitor, saw some bidding action around the $60,000 mark, but was passed-in after failing to reach the reserve price.

It was later sold after post-sale negotiations.

The line-up of Advantage feeders caught the eyes of plenty of attendees, including Graeme Bolt (left), Woodanilling and Dumbleyung farmers Karl West and James Dare.

A Liugong 835 loader didn’t attract the same attention after also being passed-in and it was still waiting for a new home at the end of the day.

An ACCO 1850G truck with trailers fetched $45,000 and went to Tambellup, while a New Holland TG210 tractor (7420hrs) with duals went for $40,000 after the bidding was pushed up from $20,000.

It was sold to a Narrogin-based buyer.

A Same 160 tractor on duals with a Trima front-end loader with forks sold for $24,000 to Bridgetown.

There were a couple of augers in good condition on offer, with the Farm King 1051, complete with Vanguard 26kW (35hp) motor, taking an opening bid at $14,000 and selling for $20,200 to a Jerramungup buyer.

And a Coles SP auger with Honda 610 motor sold for $5600.

A New Holland 658 round baler, in good condition, stayed local, heading to Katanning when it was bought for $18,500.

Costing not much less was the TPW wool press which attracted plenty of attention and sold for $15,000 to a Woodanilling local, while a good set of portable sheep yards fetched $14,500 from the pocket of a Brunswick-based buyer and a Bird’s three tonne sheep feed trailer with electric scales and hydraulic open/close, sold for $12,000 to a Badgebup account.

Staying with the sheep gear, a neat line-up of Advantage lick feeders fetched between $1500 and $2100, but the majority sold at the $1600 mark to buyers largely from the Woodanilling and Wagin areas.

Some smaller sheep feeders sold between $50 and $750, while a sheep crate sold for a bargain $600.

Well used shearing heads sold between $100 and $300, divided between Dumbleyung, Beaufort River, Jerramungup and Woodanilling.

Another item to sell well was a 45t Grain Commander field bin which fetched $13,500, selling to Katanning, and a Can-Am Defender ATV cost $10,500, staying in Woodanilling.

Other items that sold well included a posthole digger ($2900), a stick rake ($2500), a stubble rake ($4800), a nurse tank and pump ($5800), a firefighter set ($1250) and a generator ($300).

Fencing gear was popular, with steel fencing pickets selling between $320 and $1300, reflecting used and new.

It was the same with fencing wire ($100-$400) and pine fence posts of which the newer lots cost between $540 and $600.

Railway sleepers sold between $80 and $120 and a fuel trailer cost $1200.

 Strolling the lines were Brookton farmers Amy Blechynden (left), Nick Walawski, Vaughan Baker, Toby and Mark Blechynden.
