“Our mid-September Dromore auction will include the usual ranges of quality excavators, diggers commercial vehicles, tractors, other popular machinery and assorted plant and equipment,” stated Jonnie Keys, “But this time we will also be auctioning a complete quarry – a slight diversification from what we are best known for but this opportunity should appeal to a number of our regular auction clientele, many of whom already operate similar operations and come to us for their quality plant and equipment, both as consignors and as bidders. We’re ‘quietly optimistic’ that this will be a popular lot, hence its inclusion in the upcoming sale.”
