Cheffins' Bill Wood sale

Cheffins’ Bill Wood sale: This nice International 276 was one of the best offered in years, and sold for £4,000.

On Wednesday, May 26th, HJ Pugh & Co held a small sale in connection with well-known ploughman and respected farmer, Bill Wood. Many bidders were present and it was rather wet underfoot when the sale started late during the afternoon in Monmouthshire.

This B-275 wasn’t quite that lucky, but still sold for a good £3,300.

All the machinery being sold had evidently been well kept and dry-stored, and the highlight had to be the very smart Ford Force 4000 – this was Bill’s favourite ploughing tractor. It was in stunning condition, featured power steering and sold for £10,200.

This B-450 was certainly one of the best examples offered for some years, the sold for £8,000.
