While there wasn't a lot of items cleared under Landmark auctioneer Mark Warren's hammer, post sale activity saw a number of machines sold to post an eventual sale gross of $339,124.

Topping the sale was a Merlo P40.7 telehandler that sold privately for $60,000.

The telehandler (2638 hours) was rated at 104 kilowatts (140 horsepower), with a 40 kilometre an hour hydrostatic transmission, a four tonne load capacity, seven metre maximum boom lift and came with a bucket and forks.

A John Deere 9760 header also sold straight after the sale for $50,000 to a Wagin buyer.

This 2005-build header was on 30.5L-32 single tyres and had recorded 2867 rotor hours and 3959 engine hours.

A John Deere 4920 self-propelled boomsprayer went after the auction for $38,000, while a 7000 litre Beverley Hydraboom trailed boomsprayer also made $38,000.

Selling for $31,000 was a New Holland TM190 (6000hrs), 2003-build tractor, rated at 142kW (190hp) which came with a powershift transmission, cab suspension, 480/70R30 front tyres and 620/70R42 rear tyres, 3PL and PTO.

A 7000L Hardi 7036 Commander boomsprayer also sold after the sale for $22,000.

This model was built in 2009 and had a 36m 'Force' boom, six sections, triple nozzles, Banjo second-fill pump, hydraulic drive 463 pump, a HC5500 controller and 20.8R42 tyres.

Another sprayer, a Silvan 5000, manufactured in 2010, sold under the hammer for $11,000 to a Kojonup enterprise.

The sprayer had a 5000L tank, 30m boom, dual stainless steel lines, five section boom, single nozzles, firebreak nozzles, a hydraulic pump, airbag suspension, a Farmscan V24 monitor and 460/85R38 tyres.

Also making a higher price was a 2010 model New Holland 83C 13.6m draper front with upper cross auger, stabiliser wheels and a comb trailer that sold for $24,000, while a Hills CTF45 chaff cart sold under the hammer for $16,000 to a Katanning buyer.

Making $4000 and also selling after the sale was a Hardi Commander 5030S 5000L boomsprayer.

A line up of sundry items kicked the sale off, with good interest in most of the offering.

Topping this section of the sale was a header front that sold for $2000, while two lots of pallet racking made $1800 each.

A box of hydraulic parts were good value at $480, while a fuel tank went for $800.

While there were items unsold at the end of the day, McIntosh & Son Katanning dealer principal Devon Gilmour was happy with the result.

"We sold quite a bit of the bigger machinery, which we were happy with and there was a lot of interest on machines after the sale," Mr Gilmour said.

"The auction enables us to have a clean out of the yard and there was not only the machinery to go but quite a lot of smaller sundry items that we wanted to clear.

"We had a lot of sundry items left after the building of our new showroom and so on and so it was good to clear some of that out.

"All in all we are pretty happy with the result.

"We had a similar reduction sale six or seven years ago and the same thing happened where there wasn't much bidding during the auction but we cleared machinery afterwards so we were expecting that today."
