John Deere dealer Ripon Farm Services is having an auction to clear some of its excess stock.

In the capable hands of Cheffins, the majority of the 55 tractors in the sale are John Deere (44 from 1998 to 2020). Other brands include Massey Ferguson, New Holland and Claas. The largest of three Valtra tractors is an S394, and there are three Challengers (MT765D and 2 x 765B).

There will also be 10 combine harvesters (9 x John Deere and a 2017 MF9380), 14 telehandlers (Caterpillar, Claas, John Deere, JCB, Kramer, Manitou, and Merlo), five self-propelled forage harvesters (John Deere 8600, 7580i, 7480i, 7400, and a Krone Big X 770), two self-propelled sprayers (Sands and Bateman) and heaps of grassland machinery, cultivation equipment and trailers.

Ripon Farm Services, which was established in 1982, supplies agricultural machinery, equipment and support throughout Yorkshire, Teesside, Lincolnshire, and Nottinghamshire.

“Our business has had three very successful years and has sold a large amount of equipment across the group,” comments Richard Gravill, Group used equipment manager at Ripon Farm Services, who adds that on average the company trades in two machines to one sale. “There will be over 400 lots of a vast variety and age, and hopefully there will be a piece of equipment on offer that suits most client’s needs.”

The sale starts at 9am on Thursday March 30, at Ripon Racecourse (HG4 1UG).
