Euro Auctions’ next Leeds auction is fast approaching with 3,500 lots consigned already it’s an event you’ll not want to miss!
Euro Auctions, record breaking auctioneers of industrial plant, construction and agricultural machinery, has already seen over 3,500 lots consigned to the upcoming Leeds auction that takes place between 15-17 May. This is an unprecedented pre‑consignment volume and could contribute to turning this into another record sale. This auction follows hot on the heels of both the March auction in Leeds and Hawk disposal sale which saw a combined sales total in excess of £70 million.
“We have an enviable reputation for selling good quality machinery; lots of it; and at fantastic prices,” explained Jonnie Keys, Euro Auctions’ Operations Manager. “This is why our now famous sale at our flag‑ship depot just outside Leeds repeatedly sees 5,000 or more pieces of construction plant and agricultural machinery go under the hammer across three days. It also attracts huge crowds, significant online interest, and consistently attains final hammer totals around the £40 million mark.”
Jonnie continued: “Our loyal local and international customer base can be confident that Euro Auctions will always present good quality, low hours equipment and machinery. With so many buyers attending, consignors from all over Europe and even further afield, are always eager to submit lots, confident that they will realise good prices. This, coupled with the onsite expansion of the Leeds site, means we are increasingly able to display even more high-quality equipment at each sale, which contributes to this being confirmed as one of the biggest and most regular used equipment events in Europe.”
The sheer volume, variety and choice of equipment marques and models is amazing; providing buyers with an excellent choice of quality used and even new equipment. Several highlights within the upcoming Leeds sale, all going over the sales ramp with no reserves, include:
- A choice over 10 2014 Komatsu HM300-3 6×6 Articulated Dumptrucks
- A choice of 2018 Volvo ECR88D Rubber Tracked, high spec’ed Excavators, each with between 550 and 800 metered hours
- A wide choice of Turbo Powershift Telehandlers including 10+ JCB 535-125 HI VIZ models
- A choice of John Deere 6130M 4WD Tractors
- There’s also an unused 2019 McCloskey R155 3-Way Tracked Screener (with just ‘demo’ 20 Hours)
