Three Bord Na Móna Auctions Set Up for the Ultimate Machinery Series This June


Wilsons Auctions prepares a remarkable lineup of assets including a selection of tractors, machinery, tyres, locomotives, agricultural equipment, and more surplus assets on behalf of the iconic Irish company, Bord na Móna.

With assets allocated for sale in three upcoming auctions, the first auction will go live at 10am on Tuesday 25th June in a timed online format. This auction will give registered bidders an opportunity to purchase five unique and historic locomotives in individual lots. Specifically tailored to withstand Irish conditions, the use of the narrow gauge locomotives has been essential to Bord Na Mona’s operations for moving peat from the bogs to production facilities.

Timing out from auction on Tuesday 2nd July, the 12 tonne diesel powered, 2 axle locomotives are located in Ballykillen, County Offaly, Ireland. The Locomotives were fully refurbished in 2017 where they had new engines fitted. The pulling capacity of the machines equates to 200 tonne gross. Full specifications can be found at

A second timed online auction will offer bidders a catalogue listing full of surplus equipment allocated from Bord Na Móna’s Derrygrenagh site. Bidding for this auction will open at 1pm on Saturday 29th June and will be online only. Final bids will be accepted before Lots begin to timeout from 10am on Monday 1st July.

Last but not least, over 150 Lots will be allocated to the physical auction known as the Bord na Móna Tractor, Machinery & Tyre Auction. Taking place on Saturday 29th June at 10am, the catalogue is set to feature 30 tractors, Hitachi Excavators, CAT Dozer, Super Haku Trailers plus a large selection of digging buckets and dual tyres.

Some of the best-known tractor manufacturers in the world will be included in the line-up such as New Holland, John Deere and Massey Ferguson. A brilliant opportunity for anyone looking for quality used agricultural stock. All assets for this auction are located at Bord na Móna, Derrygreenagh, Rochfortbridge, Co. Offaly, N91 YX30, Ireland.

This physical auction will take place at Wilsons Auctions Dublin with registered bidders benefiting from in-person bidding plus live online bidding.
