A Major machinery auction of over 80 lots will be taking place online from 26 January until 31 January.

Cheffins will host the timed online auction on behalf of Stepside Agricultural Contractors in Cardigan, Wales.

The lots will feature well-maintained agricultural tractors, forage harvester, slurry tankers, muck spreaders, plant, grassland machinery and equipment.

Established 50 years ago, Stepside Agricultural Contractors is a family-owned partnership in west Wales.

Daniel James, from Stepside Agricultural Contractors, commented: “We have had a change in business policy at Stepside and will now be specialising in the waste, slurry and digestate sectors.

“We have updated much of our slurry kit and, as a result, the machinery available at the Cheffins auction is now surplus to our requirements.

“We have worked hard to look after all of the equipment on offer, and this sale will be a good opportunity for buyers to pick up second-hand, well-maintained kit for a lower price than buying new.

“The Cheffins team are the market leaders for online farm sales, and having attended a number of their auctions, we knew that this would be the best route to market the equipment and get the best possible price.

“With new machinery prices being so high at the moment, we hope that our equipment will be a good option for farmers and contractors looking for quality agricultural machinery.”

Charles Wadsley, associate at Cheffins, added: “Stepside Agricultural Contractors is one of the most well-respected contracting companies in the business and following the decision to make a change in farming policy, we are pleased to be able to help them dispose of surplus machinery.

“Some machinery will be kept back, as the company looks to focus on haulage and digestate and slurry spreading.

“The catalogue for the Stepside sale sees a significant collection of lots, with a number of good quality machinery on offer.

“The timed online format will allow bidders from the UK and further afield to take part and we expect this auction to be of interest to both private and trade buyers,” he ended.

The sale will take place from Wednesday 26 January until Monday 31 January, with a viewing day on Thursday 27 January at the Stepside premises at Cardigan Cattle Market, Cardigan, west Wales.
