The Sale of the Century - Washing Plants

DUO and Euro Auctions, announce the unprecedented and single most exciting one-day sale of complete washing and recycling plants, screeners, crushers, excavators, loaders and ancillary aggregate processing equipment, ever to be held in the UK, on the 23rd April 2020.

Unique and unprecedented are the words used to describe this one-off sale. Never has such an array of specialised aggregate processing, recycling machinery and plant come to the market, in one place, to be disposed of in a single day, at an unreserved auction on 23rd April, at the Burton-on-Trent site of DUO.

This 'stock refresh' is part of a new and exciting expansion programme by DUO, who have acquired a new site in Coventry, and will be installing the very latest aggregate processing, recycling machinery and ancillary plant equipment, in a showcase of the very best available in the industry. As part of this programme, the Burton-on-Trent site will be decommissioned, and all equipment will be sold on the sold, on the ground, to make way for the new venture.

At this sale on the 23rd, DUO will be showcasing the latest washing technology and equipment from Powerscreen, Doosan, and the very latest in Terex washing technology which will be installed at the new DUO site in Coventry.

Star Buy!
The stars of the sale will be five Terex® AggreSand 165 washing plants, and three Italian Technoidea 1000 filter presses. The AggreSand 165 modular aggregate washing plant combines washing and screening with sand processing on a modular chassis. It brings together tried and trusted Terex Washing Systems components in an innovative modular design, setting itself apart from other washing systems in the marketplace. This will be the first time that not one, but five plants of this nature will have been offered for sale on the open market. The Technoidea 1000 range of automatic filter presses can be used in various sectors where dewatering of liquid sludge is required. Manufactured by Italian company Technoidea Impianti, they are the global leading market brand for water purification and treatment of sludge. On the day, five of these will also go under the hammer.

Patrick Doran, from DUO comments, "This will be a unique sale! Never has such a large inventory of specialist: washing, quarrying, recycling and material handling machinery come to market, to be sold on one day, in one place. This is one sale the entire industry will be following with great interest. The equipment on sale will give all operators access to machinery and equipment that would normally never come onto the open market, making this event a significant 'one-off'. If you snooze, you will lose, as there will be amazing pieces of kit to purchase."
