Low hour machines to go under the hammer 


Slattery Auctions is putting a range of near new quarry machines up for auction in Queensland, providing an opportunity for extractive producers to make savings on regular purchases.

The online auction features a range of crushing, screening and earthmoving equipment suited for the quarrying industry from reputable brands such as Powerscreen and Terex MPS. 

“This auction in particular is really about offering high quality, low hour equipment to potential buyers,” Slattery Auctions project manager and valuer Alex Leahy told Quarry. 

“The best benefit I can see is if you were in the market for a new one you would look at these machines. Many are just about new, and you’re going to save hundreds and thousands of dollars by just allowing for around 500 hours, more or less. 

“They all come with a full service history and they had on-site techs as well. It’s basically one tier below brand new equipment, the way I see it.” 

One of the standout machines available includes the 2018 Terex mobile wash plant, which has only clocked 357 hours in the past two years and has been given a very competitive $250,000 starting bid. 

Previously used to process road aggregates, Leahy said the wash plant represents strong value for something that is in near new condition. 

“The vendor was using it to make aggregates for roads,” he said. “The plant is capable of up to a four-way split and you can convert it back to a dry screener.” 

Other machines on offer include the Powerscreen cone crusher and Chieftain screen, along with excavators, wheel loaders and dumpers from other well-known brands. 

“The highest hours on any of these machines is the 2016 cone crusher which has 1619 hours – very low for a 2016 machine,” Leahy said. “I just don’t see them with these low hours come up for sale in the secondary market.” 

Bidding opens on 12 June at 4pm AEST and closes on 25 June at 7:30pm AEST.
