is there anywhere where a catalogue of expected items is available to view?

We don't do a catalogue as most people tend not to book their items in and just turn up on the morning of the sale with their lots, we therefore never know what's going to be there.

We usually have a good selection of lots whether it be parts, tractors or books/models/literature etc

It's well worth a visit and there's always plenty of bargains to be had

thanks James, did think maybe it wasn't catalogued so much as just items booked in, trouble is i'm based in West Wales so thought I would check to save a wasted drive, cant be far off 6 hours to get there.

Hi, part of the fun of the DBTC auction will be finding out what is there.

What can be assured is that the vast majority will be DB related, and there are so far several tractors and hundreds of lots expected to be offered for auction, with many of the lots probably have no reserve.

I would imagine that to catalogue the lots would be very difficult given the small scale nature of the auction and fact that it will reply on volunteers helping and items actually turning up, and make the overheads far higher.

Items will be there because people want to sell their parts as much as people will want to buy them.

I`ll add to cash 1594`s point - another great day and the weather cleared (well after the first 30 mins anyway!!).
Didn`t see the parts bit but the memorabilia/brochure section offered at the Meltham auctions just seems to get better every time - very well pleased with my additions (some rare early stuff) to the ever growing collection.
Another great auction - Madders (Chris) doing a fine job as auctioneer and all who helped out but also to the admin gals of Andrea Jakeman and new addition Jessica Throup who have the task of the admin job pinned to desk all day.

Cheers DBTC

Andy.

Hi Dan;

Dan1985, start a topic off using the new topic button at the top of the page and I'm sure people will respond.

There are members on here that have a deep understanding if the various hydraulic systems used on Db tractors

On the right hand side of the three point linkage cross shaft there is a small lever. Try moving this with the linkage in the locked up position, out towards the mud guard ( fender ) about half an inch and then down, you should hear a click. Place the maim hydraulic lever into the raise position and the hydraulic pump should work.
