Landmark auctioneer Michael Altus, with hand raised, accepts a bid of $182,500 for a Case International Patriot SP boomsprayer, making it the top price for the auction.THE success of a clearing sale is determined at the end of the day when the big ticket items are offered for sale.
And the DJ & IR Stokes clearing sale at Arrino proved no different when a bid of $182,500 topped the sale.
But an even bigger price (undisclosed) was paid after the sale for a Case IH 8320 header.
The top auction bid was paid for a Case IH Patriot 4420 self-propelled boomsprayer, an item that was fitted with a 30m (100ft) boom with 2293 hours work.
The header, with only 1216 engine hours and 1003 rotor hours on the clock, and equipped with a 45ft (13.7m) Macdon front, was passed-in after a bid of $340,000, but sold shortly afterwards.
That left a ProMix tub mixer on Ruddweigh bars as the only item passed-in, a great result for the vendor who was rewarded for meeting the market on many items, most of which had an extra burst of bidding after the auctioneer declared “it’s on the market!”
Two Case Steiger 9370 4WD tractors were offered, the first with 2868 hours making $67,000 while the other one (4420 hrs) sold for $58,000.
A couple of smaller FWA Case International tractors were offered, with a MX255 (2905hrs) fitted with duals selling for $67,500, while a MX240 (6396 hrs) with big singles made $30,000.
A total of three 42ft (12.8m) Flexi-Coil 820 bars were offered, two equipped with Flexi-Coil 2320 tanks, double shoot nine inch (22.5cm) spacing and press wheels which sold for $33,000 and $27,000 respectively. The third bar made $8000.
An Iveco Power Star prime mover (163,890km) sold for $60,000, two SFM tri-axle tipping trailers with dolly made $85,000, while a Mitsubishi FV 418 6×4 tipper with tandem tipping trailer and grain sides sold for $42,000.

Two articulated loaders were offered and a Case 621B with quick-release hay forks and scrub rake made $35,000 while a Ranger LG 930-1 with quick-release hay forks sold for $24,500.
Although a set of Swan portable sheep yards made $9000, grain seemed to be king on the farm.

A Ford TW 15 FWA tractor (8226 hrs) made $12,000, while a Chamberlain C670, which must have been older than many of the bidders, went for a respectable $4500.
