    As far as i can make out from being in the room when they were selling, there's an auctioneer who looks at his laptop and bids on behalf of people who have placed on line bids, not sure if one places a proxy bid like on ebay and the auctioneer bids up to this, or whether you have to keep clicking the mouse to increase your bid an increment at a time.

    I'll strike it off my list of possibles i think, it's just a bit over budget.

    Just shows how much tractor prices have gone up in the last couple of years. Would there be a buyers premium to pay on top of the auction price?

    was going to take a run up tomorrow alright, unless the snow is too deep and its more of a risk than anything else.
    only interested in the small lots really.
