Find a crane, spare phone box or a cool room at Henty
February 27, 2013
Are you in the market for a phone box, a cool room or maybe a 16 tonne crane?
Henty Machinery Field Days co-operative has had a spring clean and will offer an array of machinery and equipment for the farmer or avid collector at an on-site clearing sale on March 22.
Up to 10 outside vendors will also be offering farm machinery, from a silage wrapper to a John Deere header, from 9.30am.
Conducted in conjunction with Henty AGnVet, the clearing sale is expected to become an annual event, according to co-operative chairman Ross Edwards.
Mr Edwards said the co-operative aimed to modernise its machinery plant.
“The machines have been maintained in great order – it will also give people the opportunity to realise a return from selling something that would otherwise be gathering dust at home,’’ he said.
The list of surplus items include a 16 tonne Coles 615 crane, trial plot seeder, forklift, spray boom, drop saws, buck rake, sheep crate and pressure pump.
Some of the more unusual items are three phone boxes, a cool room, telephone cable, and even the kitchen sink.
