George F. White has announced the sale of two rare Muir Hill 111 Tractors at Waterside House Farm, Denwick, and Northumberland on Saturday 7th November.
Both tractors with their distinctive yellow livery, date from the 1970's and are increasingly sought after by collectors of vintage machinery.
These working tractors are a
1976 - Series 2 Standard and a 1978 Series 3 with Wide Tyres.
Both are used on the farm on a daily basis by George Philipson and this sale marks the end of his tenancy at the Denwick farm.
Originally built to be used with the Muir Hill's own 13 and 20 ton dumpers, both tractors have a 6 cylinder 6.354 Perkins engine, integral fuel tank, sliding doors and come with a variety of wheel sizes.
Commenting on the sale Auctioneer Tom Oates Partner at George F. White says, "Muir Hill Tractors date from the 1920s. The 111 model was mainly built for export and are increasingly sought after as they are so rare. Mr. Philipson purchased these tractors before he was married, that is thirty years ago. He has looked after them well and they are in very good working order, so we are expecting a great deal of interest.”
The tractors are being sold as part of farm dispersal sale taking place on Saturday 7th November at 10.30 am at Waterside Farm Denwick near Alnwick NE66 3RA. The other key machinery at this sale includes a total of ten tractors, one combine and a self propelled sprayer and a self propelled forage harvester.
