Five Terex AggreSand 165 washing plants will be the star attractions at a one-off Euro Auctions & DUO auction sale at DUO's Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire, England, site from 8.30am on Thursday 27 August 2020

The landmark sale will take place via an unreserved auction at DUO's site in Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire, central England, from 8.30am on Thursday 27 August 2020.

This 'stock refresh' event is part of a new and exciting DUO expansion programme following the company's acquisition of a new site in Coventry. There, DUO will be installing the latest aggregate processing, recycling machinery and ancillary plant equipment.

To make way for the new venture the Burton-on-Trent site is being decommissioned, with all its equipment sold at the big late-August auction.

During the auction sale, DUO will be showcasing the latest equipment from Powerscreen and Doosan, along with state-of-the-art Terex washing technology that will be installed at the new Coventry site.

The stars of the showpiece event will be five Terex AggreSand 165 washing plant and three Italian Tecnoidea 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, said to set it 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.

Manufactured by globally renowned Italian water purification and sludge treatment technology firm Tecnoidea Impianti, the Tecnoidea 1000 range of automatic filter presses can be used in various sectors where dewatering of liquid sludge is required. On the day, five of these filter presses will also go under the hammer.

All equipment has been fully DEALER maintained

Patrick Doran, from DUO, said: "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."

If you are in these industries, this will be the one and only sale of its type and may never be repeated."
