These 2-Day Auctions take place three times a year.

The next auction will take place on May 5th & 6th




At Woodburn Auction Yard we conduct a consigned Machinery Auction three times a year. The first is at the end of January or first of February (we try to miss the Super Bowl). The second is mid-May and the third is the last week of September or the first week of October (we try to miss the opening of hunting season). The date for our next machinery sale will be set and announced at our current machinery sale. These auctions are a 2-day consigned Machinery Auction for miscellaneous tools and equipment, lawn and garden equipment and mowers, industrial machinery, tractors, crawlers, excavators, backhoes, forklifts, 4-wheelers, UTV’s, trucks, pickups, cars, trailers, campers, boats and farm machinery such as balers, swathers, hay rakes, combines, misc. farm implements and much more. Lunch is served on the grounds both days, so come by and enjoy.


We start the first auction at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday in the Shed where we will sell miscellaneous tools and equipment. At 9:30 a.m. we start the second auction in the Arena where we will sell the lawn, garden and machine-tool type equipment.

When we are done selling those two categories we downsize to one Auction and start selling tractors, forklifts, trucks, pickups and cars by driving them through our Arena where, as a buyer, you will be seated in bleachers to bid.

After all of the rolling stock has been sold we will move out behind our Arena and sell tractor attachments, such as buckets, front end loaders, etc. We will then move on to the crawlers and excavators then to the titled trailers, campers and such. At this point we may start up a second Auction again and work the rows of miscellaneous equipment such as truck beds, fencing, pallet-racking and lumber until both Auctions have finished for the day.

Sunday we start at 9:00 a.m. in the Back Lot of our property. If you did not get a buyer number on Saturday, the office will also be out back of the property in a small white building. We will work the rows of farm machinery and implements such as post-hole augers, sickle bar mowers, tillers, box scrapers, livestock equipment and panels, balers, hay rakes, mowers/conditioners etc. and finish the day with the irrigation equipment.


All buyers at our Machinery Sale will need to have a buyer number to bid, so please stop in at the office and register for a number; they will issue you a bid card which will be good for both days. If you would like to bid, please use this bid card to get the Auctioneer’s or Ring-Man’s attention. If you are the final bidder please hold the card high enough so that the Auctioneer can see your number. When he calls out your number please verify that it’s the right number–if for some reason we have the wrong number it is much easier to make changes at that point rather than later in the day.

If you have been issued a permanent number for our Tuesday Miscellaneous Auction or Woodburn Livestock Exchange’s Auction, that number will be good at any of our Auctions and you do not need to pre-register for a buyer number. Please do not ask for a permanent number–we have very few left and issuing them is not something we have time to deal with on a Sale Day. Thank you for your cooperation.


When you are done purchasing for the day you will need to go to the office to check out and pay. Even if you plan on coming back for Sunday’s Auction, please pay for what you have purchased on Saturday. There is a 5% buyer’s premium charged on all purchases at our machinery sales. We accept cash, pre-approved check, Debit and Credit Cards. If you choose to use credit cards there will be an additional 4% surcharge added to your total to cover the amount the credit card company charges us.

If you have purchased a titled vehicle you will need to show proof of insurance before we can sell you a trip permit to drive it off the property. If you cannot show proof of insurance you will not be allowed to drive the vehicle off the property and will need to arrange to have it hauled, towed or leave it until you can show proof of insurance, at which time a trip permit will be sold to you.

For all other purchases, once you have paid for them you will be given a load-out slip and a WAY employee will help you with loading of your purchases and check your items off your load-out slip.

We ask that all purchases be removed within two weeks. If for some reason you cannot remove them within this time frame, give us a call and we can work out some type of plan with you for removal. Anything left longer than two weeks will be charged a storage fee. Anything left until the next Machinery Sale will be re-consigned, storage fees will be deducted from your check and the balance, if any, will be mailed to you.


  • Monday 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
  • No Tuesday load-outs (we are busy with our weekly sales)
  • Wednesday thru Friday 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
  • Saturday (the week after the Machinery Sale) 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.


We start accepting consignments for our next Machinery Sale on the Monday following our last one. However, most consignments tend to come in during the last couple of weeks before our sale. We recommend that you consign as early as possible so we can include your items in our advertisements—you will also have the exposure from the hundreds of people driving through on a weekly basis, either attending our Tuesday Auction or just stopping by to see what we have for the next Auction.


  • Monday 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
  • No Tuesday consignments (please do not bring in consignments as we are busy with our weekly sales)
  • Wednesday thru Friday 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
  • Saturday (the weekend before the Auction Only) 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.


Commissions for our machinery sales are 25% on items bringing less than $250, and 10% on items above $250 with a $25 minimum commission per consignment.

Commission on titled vehicles is 10% with a $150.00 minimum per vehicle.

Storage fees may be charged at Woodburn Auction Yard’s discretion for items left over two weeks from the date of our last machinery sale. Storage fees will be charged at the rate of $25.00 per week, starting the third Monday after the Machinery Sale.
