Post by: Phoenix on January 31, 2013, 08:40:59 AM
For those of you that haven't seen the news, it looks like vehicles will start appearing for sale soon, although I doubt the first ones will be the one to buy as defence probably want too much for them after the T5's sold for decent money, but down the track better price and condition vehicles could well be a bargain.

I think a lot of dealers have been burnt by the last sales of the Remediation TD5 models.  A dealer had one on a lot near me and it stayed there for over 6 months the price coming down to less than they paid at auction (IMHO still $10K-$15K too much) in the end he just wanted it off the lot.
Title: Re: Defence Vehicle Disposals - 2013 onwards
Post by: juddy on January 31, 2013, 12:52:11 PM
Those Td5 prices some were up at 40k, are just plain stupid, you try and give the model year for your road insurance, and they will come back and tell you is worth 12k, not 40k.

I think 10-15k should be the price range for these, why don't we all go to the auction and bid low, i think it would be very Interesting to see whos buying these and for what price.
Title: Re: Defence Vehicle Disposals - 2013 onwards
Post by: Diana Alan on January 31, 2013, 02:30:36 PM
I thought they may have been worth $17,000 because most had less than 100K on the clock.  However when DMO puts a reserve of $20K or $21K they started off at an unrealistic price.

I do however think that the dealer networks will have been burned by the prices and saleability of the remediation TD5 models.  It could be a better story for us with the perentie sales, although undoubtedly the early sales will fetch higher prices until the current demand for the Isuzu landies is met. 
Title: Re: Defence Vehicle Disposals - 2013 onwards
Post by: Phoenix on January 31, 2013, 02:43:50 PM
Believe it, the auctions are due to start mid feb to early march.  Hopefully the perenties will come in at a better figure because of their age, but a lot (all) have been rebuilt lately.

Press Release

Minister for Defence Materiel – Sale of 12,000 retired Army vehicles
31 January 2013

 Minister for Defence Materiel Jason Clare today announced that contract
negotiations for the sale of up to 12,000 Army non-combat vehicles and
trailers are now complete.

“The vehicles will be sold by Australian National Disposals, a new
Australian-owned business based in New South Wales,” Mr Clare said.

Mr Clare said sale of the vehicles gives Australians a chance to buy their
own part of Australian military history.

“The Army vehicles being sold include the Army Land Rovers, Mack trucks,
Unimogs, motorcycles, trailers and all terrain vehicles,” he said.

“The sale of these vehicles is expected to raise more than $100 million.
Their average age is 25 to 30 years old and they have average of 125,000
kms on the clock.”

The vehicles will be sold to Australian and overseas markets in order to
maximise the financial return to the Commonwealth.

The first vehicle sales are expected to begin March 2013 and will
progressively be sold to Australian National Disposals as the vehicles are
retired from the Army over the next decade.

A number of vehicles will be reserved and offered exclusively to community
and heritage organisations, including the Australian War Memorial, RSLs and
other historical organisations.

Interested parties can register their interest with the Defence Disposals
Agency at www.defence.gov.au/dda or via e-mail to disposals@defence.gov.au.

The B vehicles will be replaced by new vehicles under Project LAND 121 –
Overlander.

This is part of the biggest disposal of military equipment since World War
II.

Over the next 15 years the Australian Defence Force will replace or upgrade
up to 85 per cent of its equipment.

I hate it when a 'middle man' is involved. They will undoubtedly want their profit margins to be as high as possible. Say goodbuy to the good old days of scoring a bargain.

Will they send all the good gear overseas as they are more likely to get a higher return from foreign governments.

I'm sure that there will still be some bargains, or so I am told  ;)  Expecially rougher vehicles that need a bit of resorative work.  I doubt very much that they will have not noticed our existance as a target for their sales.

Well, I will look at what comes up for sale, but unless I come into a swag of cash I won't be buying anything. I like the Mog's though, but methinks I will just be looking. I wouldn't buy a 110 (not that I don't like them) as I have driven my 84 Isuzu County since 2001 I think, so why buy a 110 GS, anyway good luck to those of you who can afford to buy, I hope you enjoy them, cheers Dennis

There was one auctioned off by Manheim in Tasmania a few months back.
It went for about $40k or $45k if my sources were correct. (They said they knew the person who bought it.)

The RFSV is one of a few that were given to a mob supporting one of hte SF units if I receall.  they were given permission to sell one as a fundraiser.  A bloke in tassie had it at 0k, and that pricetag seems to have stuc, I think because of it's low km, and no army use.  However with more coming on to the market soon, I think that price is unreasonable.

Has anybody else signed as an interested person at http://australianfrontlinemachinery.com.au/??

The difference this time is that AFM has the tender to dispose of most of the fleet and so therefore it won't be the same as previous Defence auctions where the first winner has buyers option to purchase all the remaining lots of the same item.  This time it will be an online auction on each item running simultaneously with no buyers option.  So if this Brisbane dealer wants to corner the market he will have bid high enough to outbid many of his potential customers.

Good luck to him, it sounds like a strategy towards bankrupcy to me.

No, no aircon at all in the land rovers (although I think the ambulance had it fitted in the rear body pod).

The trucks are lightweight in the army definitions, the 6x6 are classed as light, unimog as medium, and mack is heavy if I recall.  they are army classifications, not descriptions.

The power steering can be retrofitted using the standard Defender/Disco 4 bolt PAS box and the PAS pump bolts directly into the timing case of the 4BD1.

The 6x6 already has PAS.

You wouldn't want the 110/county version of the air con, it took up the entire dash.

With all the ARN numbers showing at the auction, it won't be hard to track the vehicles when they come up for resale from dealers/ebay etc. Everyone will know what was paid for them, which just might, I repeat might, keep resale prices down a little.
I also note the mileage on many of these at the first auction is very low - I wonder if these are the best of the bunch, so that they set a high sell price which others will feel compelled to follow for lesser vehicles.

With 2,500 Land Rovers to sell off, I cannot see how the value of these Land Rovers can be sustained. Once the enthusiasts get their own to play with, the dealers will move in and scoop up whats left. Surely supply will outstrip 'genuine' demand. Once genuine demand is exhausted, sellers will flog to 'whoever' at discount prices.

The station wagon has only 8,969 kms on the clock whereas some of the other GS Land Rovers have over 150,000kms.

Sorry about that Richard ::). I know you have a lot on your books but wasn't sure if you had seen it. Are you logging the ARNs and vehicle information? If you want some help in collecting the photos and info, do not hesitate in asking for help. I am happy to do it for you :).

I'm surprised that all auctions finish at the same time (Closes: 27/02/2013 4.45 PM AEDT). This does not give a buyer the chance to bid on another vehicle if he/she misses out on their first choice. Surely a 5 minute stagger would have been more effective and preferred by buyers.

BE PATIENT is my advice. 

If you really want a vehicle from disposals just wait.  I can't see the price being sustained unless some overseas buyer with silly money is bidding.

Otherwise just hold your cash, enjoy your Series 1,2 2A or 3 and then buy one in the future for a song.

There's enough Khe Sanh in my collection for a lifetime. ;D

I agree with your comments, I am watching the first auction to sense the frenzy.

The prices are not surprising but we have to remember there is still some 2500 for sale yet.

Question: are they all being sold in Sydney NSW.

All the best

The frenetic pace in which Mr B.L from QLD is bidding on the Land Rovers, it may be a case of buy one off him or wait till next auction. I recon he may get the lot :(

I think that the prices can't be sustained, and these look in good condition, there may well be some bargains in the rougher vehicles that will appear in time I am sure.

Ian and the others are right, it is an initial frenzy, with time will bring more reasonable prices. 

As to bits taken off, I doubt that will happen much, more trouble than it is worth.  I think some asbestos removal etc for safety reasons will happen, but that would be about it.

All do seem to be coming out of NSW, chances are they are all probably going into a big warehouse somewhere near where the business is based.  As Sam Kekovich would say, you know it makes sense!

I suppose the Ambulances will go to outback drilling outfits or tourist outfits ..or someone looking for a great "tour Australia" camper conversion. Similar to the old model in that respect.

Have to agree with you Wayne, no way for use as"On Site" mining use, but certainly a very versatile vehicle for prospecting/drilling/farming and commercial tourism off road use, and I suppose for the odd individual who can afford to purchase one, and I'm not one of them, cheeers Dennis :)

INteresting rule on Graysonline biding

"Like a traditional live auction, every auction at GraysOnline offers a 'Going, Going, Gone' period. An Auction will not close until all interested parties have stopped bidding for a full ten minutes.

For every bid placed in the last ten minutes of an auction it will be extended for a further ten minutes from the time of that bid.

This will continue until there are no more bids placed."

So they continue!!!!!

Hi,

you need an online account (easy to set up) then save them in your watching list, they stay there after they are sold and you can see what price and who bought it (just initials and town/state)

So

Soft top land rover 110's selling at this stage for 10/13k and only another 3000 plus to come on the market, prices should drop to less than 5k...

How many of the 110 soft tops have winch? GS and FFR.

Makes the civi td5's that were sold, and are struggling to sell ay 27k very expensive.ummmmmmmmmmm

Post by: Mick_Marsh on February 28, 2013, 08:58:38 AM
I disagree the prices will drop to $5k. I reckon they'll stay up near $10k.
On the civvy market, the Isuzu Landys with twice the km and not as well maintained are still selling at $6k-$8k for a county and around $15k for a 120.
Add to that, they'll probably be dribbling them out over the next ten years.
Title: Re: Defence Vehicle Disposals - 2013 onwards
Post by: Diana Alan on February 28, 2013, 10:04:59 AM
I agree with Mick, I actually think prices around the $10K are probably correct for these units.  The Civvy Isuzu 110 don't have the gal chassis and are much higher mileage, the only bonus on the civvy ones are the availability of the 5 epeed, although there is now an AULRO member making kits to close couple the Isuzu 5 speed gearbox to the Land Rover LT230 transfer making ratio selection much more flexible.

Juddy - I guess it's time for your mob to make a bulk purchase of 4 bolt power steering boxes and Isuzu PAS pumps.  Perhaps even a kit to retrofit PAS onto the perenties.

Actually 5 years is how long the disposals are scheduled for I believe.  Not convinced prices will stay that high for a soft top vehicle that is only 3 door, vs a hardtop 5 door, but I guess time will tell.

Dave will have a better idea, however AFAIK the 4 bold PAS box for the Discovery and Defender bolts straight onto the chassis where the manual steering box mounts and I believe the same shafts and pitman arm are used on both boxes.

The PAS pump is an Isuzu part superseded to IS-8970788790 (about $760 last time I was quoted - still need it)
Then there are the hoses from the PAS pump to PAS box and the one to the fluid reservior should be LR Aust parts.
The LR PAS reservoir and bracket. Should be the same on 90/110 and Defender 90/110/130.

Fitting the PAS pump to the engine means removing the cover on the timing case and slipping in the pump, no belts or pulleys, but will be some studs or bolts.  Can look when I'm at home.

So what is the cruise speed of the 4 speed military versions versus the 5 speed civvies?

For example would you need to make the swap to make long distance cruising comfortable

First, you need space.
Send me the workshop


Seriously, Juddy, are you thinking of getting one of these Perenties and converting it to five speed? Adding power steering? Air conditioning would be good if you want to set it up as a tourer.
Maybe we should start another thread. "Perentie improvements and modifications."
With the numbers that may be coming on the market, could potentially be a big topic. Might need a section on its own.
Title: Re: Defence Vehicle Disposals - 2013 onwards
Post by: Diana Alan on February 28, 2013, 07:44:12 PM
The 4 speed have a 0.97:1 transfer ratio while the 5 speed have (IIRC) a 1.22:1 transfer and the O/D 5th is about 0.77:1 .  This means that in 4th in a 5 speed box is lower than in the 4 speed but the 5th gear is marginally higher at 0.94:1.

What this means on the road is similar top speeds but the 5 speed is more able to maintain a higher average speed when hills are considered.

The LT95 4 speed is an excellent and robust box and more reliable over time than the LT85 5 speed.  However using the Isuzu 5 speed with the LT230 is superior to both the LT95 and LT85/LT230 combinations.

You cannot easily swap the LT95 for a 5 speed in the 6X6 (without re-engineering) as the rear axle drive system uses the unique configuration of the LT95 transfer box.
Title: Re: Defence Vehicle Disposals - 2013 onwards
Post by: juddy on February 28, 2013, 07:47:40 PM
With the numbers coming on the market, I think they will be a need for such modifications.  The workshop we utilise is equipped to do just about any vehicle engineering job out there, some of it is very specialised work.  What percentage of these Perenties have standard land rover parts?  and when are the DOD going to be off loading there parts?

No you cant have the workshop.........

Mick

If I understand correctly Justin is the Australian agent for a UK after market accessories company specialising in Land Rover.  Therefore they would have wholesale access to OEM and pattern Land Rover assemblies they could import to Oz cheaper than we can buy them.

The army 4X4 Perenties do not have power steering and it seems that every civvy owner of a Perentie makes retrofitting of PAS a priority.  If there are about 2,000 Perenties being released over the next few years, I personally think there would be a market for someone to make up a retrofitting kit for sale to new perentie owners.  Even if they only do it in batches of 10 to 20 kits at a time.
 
Perhaps someone doing disk brake kits for Series Landies may also be interested.

Yes the Land Rover power steering box is exactly what is needed, but the Land Rover PAS pump will not fit the 4BD1 engine. (The Isuzu pump drives off the timing gear)

So what you need is a lot of the Land Rover PAS parts, the Isuzu PAS pump and hoses to connect them together.

I could arrange storage for you...

Getting the Land Rover Parts is not a issue, I also think theres room for a interior upgrade kit, some of these land rovers will need a tidy up, and I think we could also offer a seat and trim upgrade kit. 

I would like to look into this further.  I am also returning to the UK mid year for a number of business meetings, and this maybe a good opportunity to talk Pernties...

The sliding window door tops are Wolf so likely the door bottoms are the same.  They are not quite the same as  the SIII type.

Another retrofit is the hard top.

A Perentie soft top can retrofit into a hard top.  What is needed is the 110 civvy 3 door hard top, or a 110 station wagon roof and SIII or SIIA sides and upper tailgate (with the hinge brackets for the roof) or fit a SW door,

the auction just proves that the vehicles were overpriced as for the person wanting $41000 for 3 door hard top who was dreaming.

who bought unimog please have them Non destructive inspection to identify where the welding cracks in the chasis are.

mining specifications changed this year that is why toyota bought out the dual cab landcruiser.

I'm the one that drove my land rover  205-301 now rego "WE FLY" to Canungra just a week after the auction in Brisbane and we had a good chat together on the oval.

As is the 1989 GS!

$26,890 - maybe two years ago they were worth those prices when there were only a few in captivity, but with several thousand more to come, not in my opinion. 

Even the actual trials vehicles or the non-trials JRA engineering vehicles wouldn't still have those sorts of prices.

Now we have to start identifying the actual vets, so everyone get your Somalia, Timor Leste, Solomon Islands and Iraq photos out to start getting ARN!

about $6 to $8 grand mark up after you deduct auction fees, GST and transport.

Not too bad then.... Like we have all said, once more and more come up, the prices will drop.  The hard tops will always fetch more money.......

Cant wait to see how much the double cabs go for, do we know how many of these they have?

Off hand,  low twenties... 22 or 24 come to mind (less attrition of course). Disposal will likely not occur for a few years yet.

Now we know who B.L of Rocklea is. One now understands why they bid on everything in the auction. If they sell them it will be a nice little money earner for them. I can't understand why a Motor Stealer would pay the ridiculous amount of money that was paid for vehicles that are at best 25 years old. I would think that my series 2a ffr is now worth $60,000 or more as there is less of them in existence. I also wonder what the tie is between Greys Online and Cousins because watching the Auction take place B.L of Rocklea was trying to outbid any one else who bid, I wonder if it was a ploy to raise prices in the Auction.
It gives some food for thought.

The problem with an online auction is that we have to choose which items we want and chase them as they all finish at the same time.
 Unlke a conventional auction when the price gets to high we stop and start agian on the next one.
I feel that the Auctioneers know this an manipulate the bidding if it is to slow.

I was interested in a couple of the trucks and nothing much happened to them until the day before ( Carrots) and the fact that most of the trucks topped out about the same price.
Not many of us can put a bid out on every truck!
Who is going to by a 25 year old ex army Landrover in basic trim for high Teens to low Twenties, when there are that many low priced 4X4 out there with far more to offer in Luxury and appointments.

Gone are the days when you bought an ex army 4X4 because it was the cheapest way to get one.

Hi Rod,

I don't think any Perenties have been around the clock (6 digits aren't they ??).... not that I've heard of anyway. It could have had a speedo replaced at some point though.

It's a 2nd Division (Army Reserve) vehicle, so may have spent most of it's life getting sun bleached in a compound. This would account for the poor paint, different seat covers and perhaps the low km's.

But... who knows ?

Maybe if you want one we have to get a few mates together sitting at computers in the same room each watching one of the desired items and then you place a bid at the last moment on the best value one.  A bit like a sniping service.

Correct, it stays open as long as there id activity in the previous 10 minutes, so it is a way to manage multiple item bidding with what appears to be the same end time.

Are you talking about the lack of the locking tab or the bracket that holds them?

If yes, what is the problem????

That is a standard 1980s specification for the ADF.  Dixon Bate had to make them as a special contract.
Title: Re: Defence Vehicle Disposals - 2013 onwards
Post by: juddy on March 09, 2013, 08:47:28 AM
I was talking about the bottom Jaw, its not on any of the pintles, thus the Pintle will always spin round.

Is this a problem ::), no idea, I suppose it depends if you want your pintle to spin all the time, personally I think its stupid, and a jaw should be fitted all the time.  And more so the Pintle locked when not towing.

However D, thanks for the info, I did not know the ADF Perenties came without a lower Jaw, every other army in the world Pintles have the Jaws, maybe a cost cutting thing here.

Juddy, you're got it wrong and this thread is getting off track again!

As Diana said, fully rotating pintles with non fully rotating (fixed) rings was an ADF directive from the early/mid 80's as a decision on safety grounds, as most people know if you have both spinning and if you have the trailer on too great an angle (reversing or going forward) it can lock and not be straightened with potential serious consequences.
Title: Re: Defence Vehicle Disposals - 2013 onwards
Post by: juddy on March 09, 2013, 10:17:53 AM
No I did not get it wrong, I Interpreted  it in a different way...  But I get what you are saying, it was always left to spin from a safety point of view.

Slight correction 3 out of the 5 Sliners were complete; the 2 left outside had been used to keep others going and were incomplete and one of these was reported to have the blown turbo. I was looking at them and was able to see the books on the 3 complete operational trucks. . None of the trucks had reached a millon KM not bad for 25 year old trucks. 3 of the vehicles had 17th construction markings and 2 of these were the wrecks outside.

The trailers are 41'Frehaufs and went for the low to mid 20's

Hi there all

I find this quite funny dealers buying at one price and trying to make a small fortune......

We all know what happen last time with the dealers who bought the td5 military landrovers and found the.very difficult to sell them for a profit.....and some are still available.........

It makes little sense why they would buy these and inflate the price so much, anyone who wants one knows the true value/

Patience will be the order of the day to get value!
Let the dealers grab the early ones and when they relise that we won't pay their exorbitant prices they might give up and go back to the JAP models.

Our intent is to keep these for history within reason, not just to flog the crap out of them on the beach or make into a Soccer Mums Taxi!!!

The silliness has begun,

Another Perentie (49-611) has shown up at the same dealer.

It would seem that the other four Perenties for sale at the same yard have yet to find new owners.

With so much stock coming on to the market,you'd think the demand will be swamped pretty quickly.

The land rovers will probably be down to $5k before long. A $25k mog doesn't sound too crazy either...

Very happy to wait  ;D

This one may be worth bidding on as it is a fairly significant vehicle.  http://www.graysonline.com/lot/0061-5006043/motor-vehiclesmotor-cycles/land-rover-soft-top-2-1987-land-rover-110-4-x-4-soft-top

48-005. Currently configured as a soft top, but it is actially Initial Production vehicle 5, which was built, and is still plated as, a Command Post FFR.  Only 2 were built, This one went to the army, the other still in private hands, and I believe belongs to black Bill ?

Would be a good one to have as 1 of 2 of a kind.

Richard, the bush tucker man's GS was 48-001. How is it different to 48-005?

btw, could you add a link to the http://www.remlr.com/btmnotes.html page we have.

the link is the official site http://www.bushtuckerman.com.au which apparently came thru 6 months back.

there are a couple of good yarns and generally a great place to go armchair travelling.

Post by: Phoenix on April 13, 2013, 01:49:51 PM
Ok, the initial production vehicles were the first vehicles off the line and pretty much represented one of each type.

48-001 is a GS With Winch, IPV1, and is fabously known as the Bush Tucker Man vehicle from the first series.  It is believed to be in service in Darwin still.

48-002 was a FFR, IPV2. It later became a RFSV development prototy[e and was later upgraded to the latest RFSV specivication under Project Overlander part 2a.  Believed to still be in service.

48-003 was a FFR, WIth Winch, IPV3. Like 002 it was later upgraded to be a RFSV development prototype.  It too was upgraded later again to the latest RFSV spec.

48-004 is a Survey FFR WW vehicle, IPV4. Not sure where it currently is.

48-005 is the command post previously mentioned, IPV5. Was later converted to a basic FFR. At the current auction.

48-006 is a Senior Commander FFR WW.  IPV6 and currenty of unknown location.

48-007 is a Personnel Carrier. IPV7, also of unknown location.

48-008 is the first true production vehicle, a GS which they all ere unti 48-343 when they started producing the other models.

One of which is a RAAF 6x6 as well.  Some don't look too bad, others are pretty rough, but I expect the prices will stay pretty low.

Even some of the complete vehicles look pretty rough.

4x4 Land Rover prices are down on last auction. No.5 trailers are currently at give away prices. Could this be the beginning of bargain priced 4x4 Perenties? Next auction will be rather interesting.

Cousins Motor Co had one of their Perenties up on ebay recently for $19 890. They had only one offer for $6000. This was declined. Auction ended without result.

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/1989-Land-Rover-110-Diesel-Green-4sp-M-Wagon-/390564133279?pt=AU_Cars&hash=item5aef6fb99f&_uhb=1#ht_2276wt_1140

http://offer.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewBidsLogin&_trksid=p4340.l2564&rt=nc&item=390564133279

Cousins still haven't sold any of the original four which they bought at the first auction. I think they may have trouble moving these four their current prices.

http://www.ebay.com.au/sch/Cars-/29690/m.html?_ipg=&_sop=10&_from=&_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ssn=cousinsmotorco&_dmpt=AU_Cars&Manufacturer=Land%2520Rover&rt=nc

The question should be asked...will the Perenties become 'poison' within the used car market. If prices continue to fall at auction, car yards could be stuck with unsellable stock.

The previous trailer (No 5) sales in Brisbane last year were run by Mannheims.
Not the same as these current disposals.
The only current auctions so far in Brisbane were for semi-trailers.

I'm wondering if all these vehicles are going to be Sydney sales only.  gonna make it hard
for people in the rest of Oz to get one.

Juddy, if you're after a No. 5 trailer I'll have one soon once I finish painting etc.

A Crump and Cornish is big.
But you know that. You saw them at Corowa.
IMO to make them more "domestic", move the axles over the springs. Like that one at Corowa.

Hi Mick,

Do the Crump and Cornish (and the similar ones made by others presumably) have bows? The photos don't really show whether there are sockets, etc but there are rope clips visible. They look like a nice trailer and the brakes and tailgate make them more attractive.

This one has bows - so my question answered:

I also have a Rapier trailer that I can have but not too sure if thats too big for the Workshop...

Thanks Geoff,

Going through the photos I found that one and must have been editing my post as you were posting. I agree with Mick - if the axle was refitted to the springs they would look like they were not meant to have 9.00 x 16s :). At 2M wide you could sleep crossways easily for travelling too.

How to search sold prices.

A couple of people have asked me this so I thought I would post it up for everyone's benefit. There may be a better way to do this so if you know how please share.

Basically you have the web address for the auction

http://www.graysonline.com/lot/0075-5006043/

The '0075' if the lot number the other bit '5006043' is the auction number.

If you put this in your address bar of your browser you can manually punch in the different lot numbers to work your way through the auction items and get the final sold prices.

For example lot 001 would be:

Lot 48 of the current offerings (ex RAAF GS - 230045) doesn't seem to have the external mesh roof rack.   Is this a RAAF thing or is it likely it's been removed at some stage?

Also noticed that Lot 47 (FFR 49385) has a stronger roll bar set up with braces on the rear hoop and top bars connecting the front and rear structural  hoops.    Does anyone know anything about this setup as it seems to be uncommon.

Sorry to disappoint, but, those were the current bids before the real bidders got started.
The two top 6x6's got around $20k plus other charges.

Post by: oldtwuks on May 17, 2013, 10:57:06 PM
I have inspected vehicles at two auctions and bid without success as I felt the price + 16% + Stamp Duty+ Full rego is adding $4000 to the listed hammer fall of most Landrovers. Chatting to people at the auctions I met farmers who felt buying 4 of 5 landrovers was good value as it was equal to the cost of a new cruiser trayback. I have met families thinking that these will be a good family holiday car, these people will probally have them back on the market after a few trips as they realize that the comfort level and security level of these vehicles is very limited. In the trucks I have met small transport companies seeking workhorses, most of the MOGs have very low mileage but most are rusted badly in the turrets and gutters from sitting outside for 25 years.

I have not yet met any collectors like me? I estimate that there are probably 1000 collectors on the eastern seaboard from the bottom of Vic to the tip of Qld. Not all of these have an interest in landrovers.

I am hoping that after a few more auctions demand will drop and prices will become more realistic? hears hoping anyway

Hi there all

Well its official I have bought and paid for 48 005, and driving it home from Brisbane Saturday morning:

Quote
48-005. Currently configured as a soft top, but it is actually Initial Production vehicle 5, which was built, and is still plated as, a Command Post FFR.  Only 2 were built, This one went to the army, the other still in private hands, and I believe belongs to black Bill ?

Would be a good one to have as 1 of 2 of a kind.

All the best

Curious to note that the auction listings for the NT auction are now listing No5 Trailers as "No 5 1/2 Tonne Trailers"!  ;D Hooray, no more "Cargo 1.8x1.3m" trailers. Has someone had a word in their ears, or do Australian Frontline Machinery read the REMLR forum.

And after the Bouquets, now the Brickbats. They have 5 Cook's 750kg trailers listed. Strangely, they are consecutively listed as Mobility Class 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. An MC6 trailer must be extraordinarily difficult to tow on even the best quality roads.  :(

I did send them an email about No.5 trailers, so that may have helped the change in name.

I missed the end of today's auctions but I did save a couple in my watch list, surveillance 4x4 made $15k, two  FFR's both  $8k, 6x6 $15k, cooks trailer $1800

So prices are starting to settle down, maybe the traders realise it's a very small market, farmers don't really want them as their main vehicle just as a second, too rough for tour operators.....

So if they come down another couple of grand they will be good value! then I might just have to think seriously

Just picked mine up! 1988 110...  155k on the clock. Passed road worthy first time (apart from fitting new drivers side wing indicator - cover missing and bulb blown, all good). Great wagon... now looking for a few add on bits and rear bench seats (lower part, have the backs, just need the base cushions)... If you know of any, please let me know. Also wouldn't mind a winch.
Cousins in Oxley (Qld) bought 12 in the first round in Sydney and are trying to flog them off for $18 - $27K... I paid $8k.... so they're on for a MAJOR loss!
Be good to hear from you if you know about parts... or even appropriate battalion marks ( it has a chicken stenciled on the side!).

PS - it wasn't worth my efforts/gambling going to auction with the money I paid for a vehicle with rego-roadworthy & warrantee - they are a good organisation to deal with.

The chook with a spanner would be the RAEME sub unit in the Sqadron maybe.

And on the subject of Heraldry if the chook is Rampant by standing up would a laying down
chook (Extant) be called a DEAD DUCK. ????

And , while we're on the subject. Did you know that horse statues with warriors on them can tell you if
the Warrior died in battle, died of wounds later or died of old age simply by the number of the horses legs
touching the ground ????   Did you know that.
Was the above a thread stealer or what ???

Gday to all, I purchased a Perentie from the Minto auction earlier this month, VIN  salldhaziff378257 the ARN 230059. Unfortunately there was no log book in the vehicle when it arrived in Perth. What I dont understand is that all the other Perentie 4x4s seem to have ARN begining with 480 etc, could anybody enlighten me as to why the ARN on my vehicle is so different , it was built 07/ 89. The only reference I can find on the vehicle re the ARN is what was written on the windscreen prior to the auction, it is also mentioned on the invoice reciept . Appreciate any knowledge you can give . Thanks Johno

Or even RAAF  ;)

Army traditionally used ARN up to 199-999 and then restarted the numbers hence SIIa were ARNs up to around the 170s prefixes and SIII 20s and 30s prefixes
RAAF traditionally used 200-001 and above.

(http://i100.photobucket.com/albums/m2/Auntikinus/AWM/AWM%20Korea/P04932001.jpg)

That said I have a trailer with a number above 200 which I believe is Army.

221-upwards and 223-upwards, 230-upwards etc are RAAF vehicles I believe.

The groupings were allocated at some stage, Don't recall the precise story about it.  I have some information about it somewhere I think.

Congratulations on the purchase.

I'm sure the RAAF numbers go lower than that, I know that RAAF Jeeps in the Korean war were only in the 2teens as is the RAAF FX Holden I posted above.

Even simple searches of the AWM WWII photographic collection reveals RAAF Jeep 203-957 http://www.awm.gov.au/collection/P02874.224 (http://www.awm.gov.au/collection/P02874.224)212-594  http://www.awm.gov.au/collection/124244/ (http://www.awm.gov.au/collection/124244/) 213-583 http://www.awm.gov.au/collection/OG2271/ (http://www.awm.gov.au/collection/OG2271/)  so it is likely the 2 prefix started as early as WWII.

There is a little artistic licence with the smoke dischargers etc but a very well presented item never the less.

Absolutely, everything at the Museum is being packed, the project officer is on site 5 days/week. 

Most of the vehicles and spares are going into storage at Bandiana, some items are being transferred to other Army Museums and the rest to scrap or landfill.  Some museum items will be going to auction, however it seems there are problems with this process because much of it is already off the DMO inventory.

Just looked at the ad, the lathe is the one we have been using in the museum, works well but requires 3 phase power.  Just the thing to park next to your shed.

The photo is taken inside the museum workshop, it's sad to see it so empty without the projects happening.

Hi All
I found this interesting one over in the Perth Auction. Anyone know what the unit on the dash is? I thought it may be a head unit for a HF radio but there doesn't seem to be enough buttons or plugs maybe a gps unit.
Cheers

Looking at the vehicles currently for Auction in Brisbane there are a number stripped down with lots of loose bits to bolt back up. I believe that this like mine is a quarantine clean and these vehicles have been returned fro an Overseas deployment. My log book contained all the shipping paper work, for the historical minded these may be worth a closer look.

Thanks good info good to know,

also the vehicles with very low KM's ie there is one with only 828km's (look closely at the photo of the engine, new components, hoses, belts, master cylinder, new stuff everywhere) have most likely been through Tenix full rebuilds, that is chassis up rebuild, they should have the XZL tyres, fresh paint, but more importantly rebuilt motor and gear box etc - should be basically a brand new 25 year old vehicle

Just an observation,

With all  the vehicles at Moorebank, You would want to pick your poison.  They all finish at exactly the same time. I have noticed a marked slump in highest bids.

Is anyone multiple bidding? I guess you just try the highest bid and wait to lose. :(

Maybe in a future auction I will get one for $50 in a crate. No, wait, that would be yet another Land Rover at my place.

Really glad everyone else is supporting the sell up. I'll just enjoy my 2a's. ;)

Cheers,

Ian

Last Friday, I had a close look at the Brisbane units.   Some of the partly assembled units are obviously missing parts like air cleaner assemblies etc which are not in the back.   It's unclear how many other parts might be missing.  Some log books were water damaged also and could not be read.    The other thing which stood out was firewall and door frame rust - while there are signs some have may been rebuilt not that long ago, I suspect some  have had a salt bath in the recent past, probably post rebuild :(   
All the vehicles with log books had a recent technical inspection report included in the book.    Very comprehensive - similar to an RACQ report.   This lists all defects and a total cost for rectifying the defects.    Even down to checking wiring of the NATO sockets.   The repair costs for each vehicle ranged from $6,000 to $15,000, based on the army costing methodology.   This included things like minor dents, loose rivets etc which the average owner probably wouldn't notice or care about.    The more significanct  issues were very noisy transmisisons, inoperative winches, rotten canopies,  leaking rear main seals, transmission seals,  brake issues, footwell rust etc.    To keep it in perspective, many of the issues would not be a roadworthy fail point.   

I am of the opinion that the army has prioritised the disposal of these units based on cost to bring up to A grade standards, the vehicles which are costed below a certain threshold will remain in service for longer.  It was also clear that most of the vehicles have been in storage for 12 months or more, based on km readings and dates of inspection reports.  Grays staff advised that the majority have had new batteries fitted for sale purposes, with the exception of the incomplete/inoperational vehicles which they move using a forklift.
I would strongly recommend inspecting the vehicles, the photos and descriptions do not tell the real story.

In case it helps .....

      it has been possible to look them up after they disappear from the grays auction website by entering the individual url for the subject vehicle in the search window

      in previous auctions doing this brought you back to the individual vehice entry with all the bidding intact - I assume this procedure will continue to apply

I have recently spoken to DOD with regards to a number of issues, ie When will spares be released, the question on jacks and braces etc

Heres there reply.

UNCLASSIFIED

Mr Burton,
 
Thank you for your emails to the Disposals Helpdesk dated 22 August and 1 September 2013. You have raised a number of specific questions which I will attempt to answer below.
 
As you probably are aware Ex-Defence vehicles and trailers are being sold to the public by Australian Frontline Machinery (www.australianfrontlinemachinery.com.au) through a series of online auctions. The vehicles are being released to Australian Frontline Machinery as Defence identifies them as being surplus. At the point of disposal by Defence the vehicle and trailer condition varies and, in almost every event, they are in need of mechanical work and some parts such as jacks, spare tyres and other items Defence would have fitted when the vehicle or trailer is in operational service may be missing. This could be because Defence has made a decision to keep that item to make good a deficiency in another vehicle or trailer rather than utilise a new item. Therefore, when Australian Frontline Machinery sells the vehicle or trailer the number of these items fitted varies from vehicle to vehicle.
 
At present there is no contract in place for the sale of Ex-Defence Landrover spare parts and until a particular fleet or sub-fleet is withdrawn from service this is unlikely to occur.   
 
Regards,
 
Title: Re: Defence Vehicle Disposals - 2013 onwards
Post by: Phoenix on September 03, 2013, 11:05:38 AM
This really is a twilight zone in relation to parts at the moment.  People want them because they have the vehicles, but defence still has thousands of them in service, and will do for probably a decade or so still.   So it is a grey area.

With regards to jacks, everything defence sells is usual as is where is, so if you get one, well done, if not, keep looking.

Just be careful if you are buying a No.5 trailer.  Two of them in this auction have had new A frames fitted to them prior to sale.  They are made out of RHS and painted green. 

Im not sure what the lot numbers were for the trailers as i didnt realise until i got home that all the trailer pics on the front page have the round drawbar on them

The on-line pics now show the A-frame replacement for the lots as identified by 303gunner - this with its civvie trailer hitch could appeal to some users.

Went and had a look at the Melbourne vehicles and trailers.

A couple of "traps" if you're not careful, and a couple of very good vehicles

I started most of the vehicles and mechanically all good but some firewalls/chassis not so good.

One vehicle is a Timor vehicle

Some of the No 5's I'd keep clear of

If anyone is interested in buying a vehicle and want an honest opinion PM me and I'll fil you in.

The Vehicles are all Nth QLD vehicles, been to Minto and then transported to Melbourne.

The guy said they'll see how the auction goes and if successful they might do another one in Melbourne.......

Ha-Ha! How time have changed! Probably less than 12 months ago. $609 for a No5 Trailer with near new tyres would have seemed like an absolute steal. Lot 63 does have a very straight tub and would paint up well.

I expect that the long A-frame and ball coupling might make these two trailers especially attractive to civvy buyers with say a Disco or Def Extreme who like the appeal and build strength of the No5 as an off-road trailer but are discouraged by the pintle coupling.

AFM do have a lot of trailers, so I supposed repairing a damaged on in that fashion makes sense to appeal to a wider audience!

This one is an interesting RAAF GS http://www.graysonline.com/lot/0047-5007479/transport-trucks-and-trailers/land-rover-110-4x4-cargo-soft-top-7-1989 as we have a photo of it in service as a RAAF Quick Response Force Vehicle or some such name I found it being called.  Barwork and weapon mounts for ADG's I suspect, later replaced with the use of different vehicles.

When you're going to throw away the chassis then it makes less economic sense.  $500 including BP+GST like the ones at Manheim-Fowles Moorebank 18 months ago would have been attractive.

I'm confused :o. Why would you throw away the chassis? Trailer comes with NSW blue slip. Trailer has already been modified to accommodate a 50mm tow ball. All ready to hitch up and drive away with no modification costs.

Mick

Hi Mick,

Basically they are all Ok.

All have straight chassis (not jack knifed) and nato plugs and wires all connectec on all of them.

There is one with two Michelin XZL tyres this should be worth more, there is one with a steeltrek and a Michelin this might be hard to get registered with odd tyres.

About half of them have some pitted rust on out side of tub which has been painted over. There is only two with tarps but they are not very good, so factor in $300 for a new tarp.
The non camo one is a bit bent up but nothing a sledge hammer cant fix.

The better ones are lot numbers 18, 16, 23,

Ssshhh I am bidding on one of them, cant have enoug number fives......

Basically ypu wont go wrong with any of them.

Cheers
Scott

I expect the a frame arms are exactly that cliffy, trying to appeal to a wider audience.  I expect that they were wanting more for the trailers than they are getting, and there are a few to come yet.

I don't know what shipping costs are like, but probably better than HR costs for hiring staff and having premises all around the country rather than one or 2 based in the east.  I know that sucks for those in the west, but it could be worse, you could be in Tassie!

I can't remember if any of my vehicles have a tow ball????  I know they all have pintles!  ;D  ;D

You can only tow one No.5 at a time (legally) and I have both a No.5 and a Workshop, what I don't want is another trailer on full rego because they've given them a 1985 manufacture date.

I did put a couple of bids on, but not interested in bids above $609.  Plenty more where they came from.

Minto have been selling a few rolled Macks and Mogs, presumably for stripping down to components. As they have not been through Insurance claims, it is unlikely thes vehicles would be on the Written Off Vehicle Register (WOVR) and could presumably be re-registered should they be rebuilt to roadworthy condition.

It might suit someone to buy a $7000 Mog wreck and go with something like this:

Tommy, thanks. Nice to know I own a little bit of it ;)

I had a look at Brisbane today. The RFSVs are not as good as they look in the pics.
PM for details.
There was a couple of pleasant surprises, though.
One FFR is a Tenix rebuild
A GS is in very good nick under a tatty canopy.
The Snr Commander is in average nick. I think it is the last to go, isn't it?

Am seeing a pattern of not so good vehicles presenting with new canopies and CES/ extras as apparant sweeteners.

It also seems the spare tyre thing is just look of the draw, Some of the RFSV's in NSW have four spares, some 3 spares yet the item descriptions says 2, only.

I called  clarity this, and they could not give me a proper answer, but any extra spares would be used on other vehicles if required? and not sold as single items.

Look at the Brisbane sales, and the item descriptions clearly says 3 spares, so thats what you get, and this corresponds to the pictures of the vehicles with 3x spares. So good on Brisbane.

Interesting to know that these are not as good as the Townsville ones, as you say Dave they look very good in the pictures, I am going to go and have a look on Monday I want to see how they compare with mine.

Juddy, the Sydney vehicle that you think has 4 spares only has 3, on spare an wheel has been seperated.
This vehicle is not in the same shape as ours.

Re: The veh in Bris with the spares and rear seat:
I'd rather buy the seat (not that anyone can use it) and wheels seperately and retain the pristine chassis that we have.
Cheaper in the long run.

The Bris RFSVs are Western Cape/ Gulf vehicles as opposed the the Cns vehicles we bought. Do you recall our conversation about the sealed/ unsealed road use ratio? These demonstrate it well!

Interesting to see that these vehicles made a trip down to Minto for pre-delivery and photos before returning to Bris for sale!?

PS, have fun finding you way into the yard where the vehicles are, it is almost as if they don't want anyone there!
Access via McArthur avenue (well signed on the front fence) into the yard past the Army water treatment trailers and around the back to the left. Keep driving all the way around and don't park your RFSV too close to the sale vehicles. You might cause confusion (or get an offer) ;)

Sounds like she's could still be there then !   Although there were a few Carryall's / Comd Vehicle that remained Olive Drab. CO 2 Sig Regt had one in 93/94 and I remember seeing a couple at Moorebank about 5 years ago.

It does appear to be a lot of money, but when looking at the price it's not just the vehicle. It would have included support costs and spares forecasted over its Life of Type.

This vehicle does have A/C fitted, although I suspect the new owner will soon be familiar fitting new fanbelts as the pulleys are badly out of alignment and will throw belts readily. The plumbing for the A/C in the rear body is exposed and may not be "Family friendly".

is this model fitted with air con ?. the picture of the engine bay shows a a/c compressor.
Quote from: Phoenix
So is anybody bidding on IPV 7 ??
This vehicle does have A/C fitted, although I suspect the new owner will soon be familiar fitting new fanbelts as the pulleys are badly out of alignment and will throw belts readily. The plumbing for the A/C in the rear body is exposed and may not be "Family friendly".
the fans in the back in photo 3 are very close to the fan I have in my wood heater im thinking they would be the same lol

I decided to have a dabble with the auction today and finished up scoring 48 964 an FFR with a devil riding a cannon on the doors. Anyone know what that is for? Pheeny would you be able to put 48 964 on my list thanks.
 I'll pick it up on Monday and drive back to Kal hopefully with no dramas

After a not uneventful trip 48 964 is now residing in Kalgoorlie. I've learn't quite a lot about the vehicle and the bidding process so when I go after the next one I hope to do well. This FFR drives beautifully considering I drove it out of the Minto yard and for 3400 K's almost non stop.

Only problem was 2 blowouts due to the tubes rather than the tyres. The tubes on the left side were in poor condition. The lvehicle had been sitting for 2 years and I guess the sunny side copped a lot of heating and cooling.
They blew near Nullarbor and east of Madura resulting in the other half driving 800 K's to bring a couple of spares and me having a 24 hour camp out

It appears to be a recent repatriation from service OS.
They are stripped to access all areas for cleaning. This one seems to be stripped to the next level, I haven't seen any before with the dash removed.
Perhaps AQIS found, like me, noodle packets and plant material in an IIMV after its return and immediate disposal from Timor L'Este and decided to increase the level of cleaning required.
Someone here is very interested, so maybe best to declare to prevent a Blue-on-Blue over it ;)

The ex SASR TD5s that were returned from Iraq/Afghanistan were so comprehensively stripped down by AQIS that they were deemed economically unviable to rebuild. All the dash, engine bay and lighting wiring was unbound, cut and high pressure washed.

Unfortunately I work at Warburton WA for the next two weeks and will be unable to go get it as I did with FFR 48 964 at the last auction. I'm about to have a long break and will fit the FFR out with 77sets to use with the cadet units I look after. Thanks to anyone able to help. Brian

However If you need it picked up at Minto I could pick it up on Friday.

The FFR will be set up as a comms centre and there will be a fair bit of gear for me to carry. I've got the use of 49 505 and trailer when I require it but its a GS and I cant go sticking my radio gear etc in that Landi until it goes to auction and I buy it. That  could be a while.

.....and their A frame draw bars need some repair/replacement  and the mudguard on the badly bent one also needs replacement :), but still, they have some potential for a buyer with the ability to repair them if the price stays low.

I guess that some trainee drivers have never backed a trailer before :)

No, the background steel is rusty, but the numbers are fresh. Have a close look and none of the individual numbers are rusty except where they stamped in already bare, rusty metal. The VIN numbers are in sequence with other trailers offered in the same auction. For instance, this trailer (Lot 60) got given the VIN TR410094936. Lot 59 got TR410094937, Lot 56 is TR410094938, Lot 57 is TR410094939, and Lot 58 is TR410094940.

MIck,when registering a trailer for the first time in NSW it has to have a VIN. Even if you have a home-built they issue you with a VIN which must be stamped on before you get the "blue slip" (which is a raodworthy cert to allow registration). Since this requirement was adopted these newly issued VINs by the NSW RMS have the TR41000...... prefix.

In this case the blue slip issuer,  (which is tied up with the  selling authority) would have been issued with a block of VINs to use (maybe hundreds at a time).

Yes. Know all that. We have a similar system here in Vic. We call it a "R" number.

What I wondered about was, assuming the army had them stamped quite some time ago, why would the army need to stamp them? But, as 303Gunner has pointed out, they are recent stampings. Makes the question pointless.

But tonight, Cyclone Alessia (http://www.news.com.au/national/breaking-news/nt-cyclone-alessia-to-hit-coast-sunday/story-e6frfku9-1226767108599) is forecast to hit the Darwin region.

Good day friends,
I am not sure if this is the correct place for this, Pengelly Truck Sales in Toowoomba are buying Mack tippers at the auctions and sending them to New Guinea.They have already sent one lot and they have another 3 tippers in their yard now. One of the ones in their yard now is just plain olive drab with the old original radial bar treads on, in fact it looks like it has just come out of a museum.
Cheers Ken

In-house meaning at AFM Minto, not at Bandiana/Pucka/wherever the army stores the wrecks.

I wonder if those new chassis have numbers stamped already, if not would be perfect for my 110 :D

THat same plate does appear on the photos we have of an armounred unit with armor bolted to it (or so it appears).  we have no details of the armor kit as it is a defence modification, not land rover, but interesting none the less.   We have a couple of photos of these armored landies, but certatinly no details, and only the registration of this one with the plates, but no armor bolted on.

Hi to you all. I'm not due back at work until 7 Feb so anytime after Christmas I can head off across the Nullarbor. I'd drive the Mk 4 but I don't think the servo's would carry enough fuel.
 I would like to thank all of you for any assistance with these trailers. Living in Kalgoorlie is great but it's a hell of a long way to anywhere east of here.
The plan is to set up the 110 FFR and 154 403 as a comms setup for cadet activities. The trailer will have 2 11x11's water jerries and stores and the FFR will have a UHF base station, 2 77 sets mounted in the vehicle (160 set I believe) and my comfy bed.I'm over sleeping on rocks. 33 495 will be attached to the 10LH FFR for the moment. I was looking forward to having a peek at Cookies shed but maybe another day if this goes according to Diana's plan. I have two trailers capable of carrying the no5's but will have to fit a lunette to one.

Measured up two trailers today and I'm pretty sure I can load both onto the deck of the float, so a more stable load at D4 speeds.  If I go to Mildura they won't need Rego till they are out of NSW, however given that we have a blue slip a unregistered vehicle permit can be obtained before the journey.

I now have the dogs to look after till the 28th so can leave after that and be in Mildura on the 29th or any other day up to the 4th Jan.

Brian (and Scott) it's up to you to make the decision if you want me to do the trip.  I happy either way.

Ohh, now that opens a can of worms!

Is an UVP issued to A Person, or for A Vehicle? If someone were to get a UVP in NSW for a vehicle and drive it (or move it on a trailer) to someone else halfway to then continue the journey, does the 2nd person require a new permit issued in their name?

And I understand a NSW UVP is not valid within WA.:

Lots of eastern state things are not legal in WA, HCRS for example.  You'd think they were part of a separate country.

I don't need the trailers registered when they are a load on my fully registered float, but whomever takes them on will need the one riding on the road registered or on a permit.

AFAIK the permit is issued to the vehicle, at least thats what happened when I bought the SADF SIIB from Tasmania, the permit was arranged by the vendor which allowed me about a week to get it to Sydney. In any case I can operate as Brian's representative to the RMS under the same conditions as I picked up the trailers.
Title: Re: Defence Vehicle Disposals - 2013 onwards
Post by: B 52 on December 21, 2013, 05:37:58 PM
I have 2 trailers, 1.9 x 4.4 and 1.85 x 3.0. (internal) They should both be big enough to carry both trailers. Permits are issued to the vehicle rather than a person in WA and I'm sure SA and NSW would be the same.  i'm adding a ball tow hitch and making an adapter for the electrics to 48 964 so that I can bring a trailer with me. My original thought had been to put one upside down on the other. What is the legality on towing one behind the other?
When I drove the FFR across I was told the one permit was valid all the way to my home address which was written on the permit. As it happened I had a valid permit for WA because I got one one prior to going to Sydney. They can be got online and a printed copy isn't required, just a record of the number.

Hi Brian

The 33-945 trailer is currently cohabitating with 154-403 and my 173-159 (just next to the buggy).

(http://i100.photobucket.com/albums/m2/Auntikinus/Trailers/No-5/20131221_130403.jpg)

However we are a little concerned about the stability of two trailers one atop the other.  Putting two trailers with the lunette on the deck we can push the two trailers together so there is about 2050mm between the axle centres.  The length of a No.5 from the centre of the wheel to the tip of the lunette is 2267mm so as long as you have about 4300 from the back of the trailer deck to the behind the trailer ball coupling you should be able to double up the two on a trailer. My float is designed for 88" Landies with a 109 in an emergency, so provided it is longer tha mine you should be O.K.

Boxy, for a vehicle to be sent for disposal it must be one of two things;
Surplus to requirement
Replaced by a suitable substitute

Neither the GMV (LR) or the tipper are.

If you want a GMV style vehicle, I would reccomend the Canters. Plenty have come through and there will be more. They are in much better condition than any GMV that will be released.

Dave,
I dont want a canter 4x4 i have one out here that we take all over our national park.  it goes most places but its a horrible ride on the dirt roads, finds bumps that the landcruiser dont.

I was just commenting generally that i havent seen any.  In the six years i spent as an engineer in the reserves i saw a lot more mog dumps than i did mack dumps. I know the construction squadrons probably had them

Also i was checking out cookeys Mk3 on ebay to try and see what was in the corner(i have no idea) and there was an ad for the next auction in the corner that took me straight to the bid page on graysonline for a 6x6 Assault Pioneer, which is more of the one i want.

My guess was velcro as well, but for camo 'pads'. I think the poms had something similar on some of theirs (the snatch landys ?)

It's a whole lot of Velcro strips. Reflective strips could be one reason, perhaps for a vehicular game of Laser Tag or Skirmish?

When using the same equipment as your 'enemy' during operations everyone uses IR velcro 'colours' to identify teams etc. So makes sense that vehicles get the same treatment in larger operations?

IR has become pretty vital in modern Ops. There have been friendly fire incidents and to minimise any mis-identification between US and UK etc. Those guys piloting-by-remote the ever-present drones are in the States and... satellites look down...

There is a Afghanistan SForces photo in the AWM archive showing a trooper and vehicle on stand down -on the ground/gravel about 10ft away is an Australian flag laid flat on the ground. It could only be seen from above. Was it SOP?

AFM don't actually know what is coming up for auction, what happens is that in the month or so before an auction DDA start delivering them vehicles and trailers that they put into one of the upcoming auctions.  Not everything at Minto etc, will be sold at the next auction.  e.g. when I picked up B52's last trailer before Christmas they had just been delivered a Haulmark MC4 20 Ton heavy plant trailer.  That trailer is not in the current auction.

If you want a Cooks, a friend bid on and won 2 at an earlier auction, one will be surplus to need.  If he sells it he was going to ask $2,500, or that's where he would start the bidding on eBay.

It appears that a lot of bidders suffered with auction fever this time around judging by what people paid for some of the stuff. $2300 for a trailer is not a record 2400 was forked out for one back in April last year, it makes my $409 trailer look more like a bargin. With the GST and 6% auction fee the $2300 trailer turns into a $2600 trailer I would rather put my money into a Cooks or a Trak trailer for that sort of money.

Congratulations Dervish and welcome to REMLR.
Are you aware that you have purchased Perentie #10 supplied to the Army?

It seems that it has new rear quarter panels or tub, as it is missing the hasp and staple latch from the CES (storage) bins on the side.
Near new canopy, worth $1300.

Enjoy!

Thanks Dave,

I was aware that this is Perentie #10 - thanks to your excellent guide, actually. That is what first drew me to this particular unit - as well as the unusual auscam and good canvas. I had noticed that it is missing the three larger canvas tie-down points along the top of the tub, but I hadn't noticed anything else missing?  :-\

Thanks Rod, I'm pretty chuffed with it. I was originally going to hang out for a RFSV, but I don't think prices were going to fall any time soon and realistically when I go touring I'm going to take the Defender anyway (so the nice bits would be wasted on me). So I have a dead simple no-nonsense GS - suits me down to the ground.

So, does anyone know why it has irregular camo?

Cheers,
Matt
Title: Re: Defence Vehicle Disposals - 2013 onwards
Post by: Tommy on January 16, 2014, 03:44:40 PM
Matt

The camo paint on your 010 looks fairly fresh and untouched. It also looks very neat (unlike many army Land Rover schemes) :). If Dave is correct in saying the tub appears to be a replacement, the pattern may be the work of an aspiring decorator/spray painter when repainting the entire vehicle. The canopy also looks to be new so maybe the vehicle has had a makeover.

I notice that there are a few scratches on your Landy. By the looks of it, there is white paint exposed under these scratches. Is this correct?
Title: Re: Defence Vehicle Disposals - 2013 onwards
Post by: Phoenix on January 16, 2014, 03:54:38 PM
There was another parted out vehicle in the recent auctions with the skin from one side of the tub removed, perhaps it was parted out to repair those one, and repainted by AFM ??

Gday , I got one of the two 4 door hard tops at the xmas auction in Adelaide. Thanks to a few members on AULRO for more info. Mine was advertised as a Personnel Carrier but seems it might be a Senior Commander. A quick 39 hr drive back to Perth was uneventful except for a loose fanbelt and the tropical roof wanting to stay in South Aus. Unfortunately no GM120 or CES. There is a small fuel leak near pump, dripping on front diff - any ideas? Apart from that she drives like a dream. 89 000 km supposedly with no 120 to check but seems feasible with overall condition. Over the pits on Monday - fingers crossed. Are there any issues other West Aussies have had with licensing? Thanks. Paul

With East coast market more cashed up and high international interest a close international port is important.
Stuarts intel has the LRPVs coming to Cdo in Sydney.
It is not inconceivable that they may be passed onto Inf/Armour/Cav recon after being replaced by Hawkei.

G'Day again, Paul ;)
Anything is possible, but it seems that AFM is mustering all vehicles to Sydney first, prepping them for sale than sending them where they expect a good result.
The recent damaged vehicles in Minto were all genuinly 'Incomplete and non-operational' with 1 exception. Others have sold in Minto and particularly Bris as such but were actually vehicles that had been stripped and cleaned for AQIS for re-entry to Oz after deployment.
AFM has stated that the 'Intention' is that the vehicles are not registered.
Given that the vehicles have not been registered with any RTA/ Transport authority, they therefore do not exist on any WOVR.
I'll leave the rest up to you.
Buying a couple for parts is a very good idea especially at the price they went for last week, 2 vehicles for the price of a 2nd hand engine and gearbox!
Any 6x6 owner needs to take particular care of their vehicle. Getting parts for them will be 'Interesting'!

My guess was velcro as well, but for camo 'pads'. I think the poms had something similar on some of theirs (the snatch landys ?)

All of the above sound plausable though....

Hi Brian

The 33-945 trailer is currently cohabitating with 154-403 and my 173-159 (just next to the buggy).



(http://i100.photobucket.com/albums/m2/Auntikinus/Trailers/No-5/20131221_130403.jpg)

However we are a little concerned about the stability of two trailers one atop the other.  Putting two trailers with the lunette on the deck we can push the two trailers together so there is about 2050mm between the axle centres.  The length of a No.5 from the centre of the wheel to the tip of the lunette is 2267mm so as long as you have about 4300 from the back of the trailer deck to the behind the trailer ball coupling you should be able to double up the two on a trailer. My float is designed for 88" Landies with a 109 in an emergency, so provided it is longer tha mine you should be O.K.

Diana
I made it back to Kalgoorlie with both trailers late last night without incident thanks to Diana and her mods to my trailer and her tie down efforts. 154 403 is 1971 vintage and belonged to 6 RAR 1971 to1976 before being shifted to 9 TPT SQN '76 to'97 then 2FD LOG Bn at Lavarack then to1 FLD REGT in Enoggera in June '07 
33 495 was with 21 SupplyBn Moorebank from 1981 on.

Hey Scott,

If you do have a win and I get my hands on a No.5 , you might be able to piggy back the trailer home for me?

I'm a starter for the Armd museum RV for the convoy drive to Corowa.

Cheers,

Mick

Post by: 303Gunner on February 07, 2014, 10:58:01 PM
What's the rules on imports to nz?
Mainly Quarantine issues, steam clean to Nth Degree.
As the vehicles have Aust Compliance, that is accepted in NZ so they should sail through rego. They go through a process called VIN'ing (much the same as NSW Blue Slip), then a Warrant of Fitness (roadworthy), and done.

NZ allows imports of 2nd hand vehicles from places like Japan, Aust and the US, either by an individual or by a dealer/re-seller, so these won't be an issue at all.

Good question, it was there last night  :-\ I also can't see the NZ auction. Hopefully they'll reappear soon, AFM seem a little confused this round.

The RFSV still had the side bins and it looked like either the canvas had stretched or someone had gently reversed into a tree, pushing the rear ROPS hoop a little forward and creating slack in the canvas. It appeared that half of the roof cage was cut off? It had the dual rear wheel carrier.

If you go to AFM's own website, and look under 'Showrooms, it still lists Minto, Brisbane and Auckland.
I reckon the Auckland auction will start next month.

Listing only the three makes a bloke wonder if the other cities that have had auctions are now going to miss out?

I believe that the only 4WD hardtop being offered at Minto is a wagon which looks like it's been in a heavy rollover,  like what they term  "incomplete and non operational".

Are there any 5 door 4WD station wagon types left to dispose of apart from this one ?

Minto
48 033, well used but original. still has the hasp and staples
RFSV has had major work done. near original spec. Ha, The side brush bars are now 'Side Rail intrusion bars'!! LOL they are intrusive if you bang your shins on them!

Here's something interesting. The 3 refurbished "As new" 6x6 Infantry Carriers have all about the same milages:

50-888 (http://www.graysonline.com/lot/0014-5008725/transport-trucks-and-trailers/land-rover-110-6x6-infantry-carrier-hard-top-7-1996?redirect=0) 2,673Km

This is more than just sitting in a depot, but it is very co-incidental that they are all very close overall, and indicates that they have not each gone off to random postings, they seem to have followed in each others footsteps since rebuild. Would they have been driven from Tenix at Bandiana to say Melbourne, then later moved to say Brisbane on road, or would they have been shipped by truck? Beside a shakedown following rebuild, what else would they have done?

Previous LRs and Trailers have had a discreet AFM chrome badge stuck on them, which could be removed easily by the new owner if desired.

A new development on one of the Unimogs is a large door decal for AFM, not as discreet as the chrome badge, it's a bit "in your face". I wonder if this is going to harder to remove? And will we start to see them on the Landies?

I think you're too late Cliffy, the open days were Saturday, Monday and Tuesday. The auction finishes this afternoon. I plan to attend all the Minto auctions, so if you or anyone else wants me to look over any of the future offerings and take photos I can do so.

I might recall something about the lot you're looking at, but unless it is one of the perentie wrecks it's unlikely.

What's going on??

First run of vehicles 8/87

is it a missing IPV reborn?  I'm confused!

"7" number stamp mislaid that day ? 

Sorry - I haven't got any serious info about it but it's interesting, the ARN is later in the series, I had a look the other day and it has a bit of rust and the tyres are all sprayed with the letters "RU" - whatever that means - I crossed it off my list.

The VIN is consistent with 1986. I have no idea what it is, but 10/86 is an interesting month...

Grays are trying to wring more money out of the units buy getting their mechanics to replace missing items.
They are also trying to re-construct the non-ops as much as practical.
Makes sense as the sell prices start to drop further.

Hi all I wonder how many of the bidders checked out what they were bidding on in this auction, I would guess not that many. I think Juddy might back me up on this statement when I say that the vehicles on offer in Brisbane this auction a very low standard I would say that they were almost the scrapings from the bottom of the barrel. The prices that were bid on these vehicles are over the top for what they were.  And as for Minto the vehicles were a lot higher quality but as for the prices they were completely over the top as shown in the example below. I think people are forgetting these vehicles are almost 30 years old and have been well used.

Wow that is expensive, was it a  rebuild?
Title: Re: Defence Vehicle Disposals - 2013 onwards
Post by: juddy on February 19, 2014, 07:37:43 PM
The BNE Perenties were like Hot Rover said, getting near the bottom of the Barrel. 2/3 were fair to good the rest poor compared to what we have seen before, but if those price are a average of $7000 plus GST and the Fee, then $8120 is still a ok ish price.

It was very Interesting the people who were viewing on the day had no clue as to what was good or what was bad, and some even said wow these are in good condition for a old land rover.  Funny too as I parked mine at the end of the sale row, and people thought it too was for sale.

It also seems that most buyers of these Perenties, do not give a monkeys about the history of the vehicle what were the correct fittings, kit etc, they just want a old army Land Rover, to bash about in.

One chap who i talked to is a painter, we looked at the 6/89 GS A rebuild and I said that would be my bet, just had a call from him he won it. do we know what that one went for?

Quick question, why are different bull bars fitted to the same variants?

The Survey at BNE
(http://i856.photobucket.com/albums/ab130/juddyburton/BNE%20Sales%20Feb%202014/DSC_0668_zps09b536a5.jpg) (http://s856.photobucket.com/user/juddyburton/media/BNE%20Sales%20Feb%202014/DSC_0668_zps09b536a5.jpg.html)


The NZ Sales

I noticed this also at the BNE sales some GS's were fitted with shall we say the basic bar, as per the Survey at NZ, and others the same bar as the BNE Survey, what reason to fit different bars, and no bar was ever designed for a particular variannt ?
Title: Re: Defence Vehicle Disposals - 2013 onwards
Post by: 303Gunner on February 19, 2014, 10:19:45 PM
Because the old bar wasn't much good for anything, and the new ones are stronger and offer better protection. However, not all vehicles got the updated bar fitted.

Three of the Perenties were sold to bidders from Minto. Also, a bidder from Minto pushed the RFSV up too. My conspiracy theory? AFM are now competing for lots, pushing the prices up.

Either that, or there are now some happy, multiple Perentie owning, people in Minto.  :)

And fast on the heels of the silly first bidding we have RFSV number 2, that was a good buy at its lower bidding price, but those who thought 18k was stupid are now upping the bidding on this one, looks a good one, but 12/14 Max in the real world, but as we know this is not always the real world, 18k for this one....

How do you put the NZ sale LR's into watched items ?
Title: Re: Defence Vehicle Disposals - 2013 onwards
Post by: 303Gunner on February 20, 2014, 11:26:43 PM
Three of the Perenties were sold to bidders from Minto. Also, a bidder from Minto pushed the RFSV up too. My conspiracy theory? AFM are now competing for lots, pushing the prices up.

Hmmm - illegal?
I know at least one Land Rover enthusiast who lives in Minto.  So just because a bidder is in Minto doesn't mean its AFM.
Or could be on behalf of Foreign Bidders, who would require an agent with a local address to register with AFM/Grays, yet have the vehicle held in Bond to be GST free for export? I understand that at least a couple of vehicles have already gone overseas, but I have never seen an Overseas bidder's address in the bidding history. Perhaps Grays have set up a system to bid by Proxy for overseas buyers?
 
Do we think they are overpriced? The AU$ has dropped against the UK Pound, the US$ and NZ$ in recent months, making any purchase accordingly discounted in foreign currency.

Vic closer to WA but being able to rego in NSW and drive back still looking good ::)
Sad thing is the ARN's I'm waiting for (WA units) will probably be railed East and require $$$$ to get them back here.
FFR MAN, I may take you up on that offer!

Hi All
I have been up all night pondering the problem at hand and I have come to this conclusion. Due to climate change the atmosphere is increasingly becoming warmer which is going to cause the end of the world as we know it. So I went out to my shed in the early hours of the morning and gazed into the windscreen of my now very valuable series 2a (due to the rarity of it. I have worked out the value of my 2a looking at what clowns are prepared to pay for a vehicle with less rarity. ) and I turned towards Solihull, fell to my knees and prayed to the Land Rover Gods. After this life changing episode I walked away with some clarity on the problem.
The prediction is that we are all going to die and the world is going to end at 4.20 PM AEDT 26/02/2014, so we all have to bid like crazy because if you purchase one these SUPER ROVERS you will survive Armageddon. So you all have been warned do something to protect yourself and your families.
Listen to what I have to say I have looked in to the eyes of the GODS.

Post by: juddy on February 21, 2014, 10:24:59 AM
It does make you wonder, why the values of the older Series land rovers are still low compared to these, but the fact of the matter is, most buyers what a newer vehicle that is reliable, the Perentie fits the bill perfectly.

Series Land Rovers are looked upon by most as old classic vehicles, and as such are not very good as a every day vehicle.

Rightio you blokes .... can someone talk me around the reasons this Cargo went for that money please?

http://www.graysonline.com/lot/0028-5009036/

Someone added a 1 to the front of that bid by mistake maybe?

$9,009.00 is pretty steep but $19,009.00!? I honestly think that may be a ten thousand dollar mistake.

second highest bidder went to 18,209, 3rd highest 12,009  so was a real bid...........

Wow! right you are. Crazy price.

Went to Melbourne today for inspection the worry is the type of people looking, my summary is:

I recon they'll all go too dear - plenty of DH's looking today that just want a bush basher, they'd start them up with hand throttle all they way in, cold as and they wouldn't idle smooth so you'd hear them say oh that needs a tune up - another one wouldn't start because they didn't glow the plugs - they recon they flooded it by pulling the choke out ie the hand throttle! go figure........do they really kow what they are looking at?

Mostly poor to average condition, definately moving the lower end out first.

The RFSV Lot 9 and 10 both looked about the same, good honest vehicles - make the jerry cans expensive on Lot 10

I actually took a different view.  There were a lot more people at today's "open for inspection"  while most will only have seen the Perenties for the first time today and don't have the wealth of knowledge you have.  I showed a few people today how to start the Perenties correctly and they had plenty of questions.

I think the pick of the crop was the 6x6,  if anyone is interested this one looks in new condition right through, the whole vehicle a great example of one that has little use.

HI, yeah I helped out a few as well, helped one bloke for about half an hour and gave him a run down on the vehicle he was keen on. Plenty of others didn't know what to look for but kept to themselves - just hope for their sake they don't buy something they are disappointed in when they take it home and get a RWC

Hi to all
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce The Ram Rod to the forum. I was lucky enough to have a win th the Melbourne auction to day. The Land Rover Gods smiled on me today. The secret to winning is simple, I arose this morning after the auction had played on my mind all night again with a vision so I climbed to the top of the firey volcano on the edge of town and I sacrificed 15 virgin to the God of Land Rover. I left the mountian a winner. Give it a go.

Looks like there'll be a lot of happy campers after that Melbourne auction   

There's often a few questions as to what they sold for so here it is - as a dump from the graysonline site

Sydney, Brisbane & Melbourne in that order      if the post is pointless or too big moderator please feel free to remove it  :)   


No problems its the sort of thing people want in this thread ;D

Well done HotRover, It is a great vehicle - RAMROD!

Well I'll put my hand up, after much dissappointment in missing out on a Tarin Kowt vehicle in the December auctions I made sure I got the one this time.

So I now own 48-664

Now got to sort out the logistics of getting it home without a certain family member working out what's going on! might need to strategically place it in amongst a few series 3 and 2A's and "hide" it for a while! Lol

Will be driving it and the FFR to Corowa, just need another driver, oh yeah my son's a steerer I'll transfer him to my fleet for the weekend!

Well done  Scott I didn't see you at the auction. Now we know what you wanted the ignition lock for. The reality of the last couple of days hasn't sunk in yet I woke up this morning feeling a bit flat as I have been living on the edge consumed bu auction fever, I will have to find something to to fill the day in now I can't keep checking the auction out. Might run into you on pickup day.

Never get bitter loosing auctions unless I find out that there was shill bidding going on or the auction mysteriously ends as the vendor had a BIN offer and decides to take it instead of letting the auction run it's course.
I still would love to drive a vehicle back West so a Minto vehicle is the go anyway (blue slip).
Well done FFRMAN! You got your pick too!

I do the same..........but I now have a problem now how to extend the shed without confessing what is within!!

The Victorian sale which I'm hacking my way into in the approved way doesn't mention green (pink? Purple? Whatever) slips or whatever the Victorian equivalent is. Do the vehicles in states other than NSW come with roadworthy certificates?

Welcome to REMLR Charlie! Unfortunately they don't - the only vehicles to come with anything are the NSW vehicles with a blue slip.

Yep, but it's not up yet. The QLD auction is though; there's a suspiciously familiar character on one of the Perenties... Mick?

Rather average maybe, but the odo is commensurate with hours, so for those a fair distance away it looks like it could be a rebuild...
Plus it has those most awesome howlers of tyres fitted, that makes it worth at least $75 more valuable than one with steeltreks!

Had a bit of a look around at the Melbourne offerings this morning. The worst of this lot are probably better than the pick of the previous bunch. A few of the FFRs were particularly nice. No complaints there.

A couple of the six by sixers were pretty much factory new. Not even a scratch. My sister who happens to be looking for a seven seater SUV to deploy her kids and their mates to school came along and took a bit of a shine to an IIMV  ::). I managed to talk her out of it so I reckon the brother in law owes me.

I went down to the Melbourne Inspections this morning at Grays.  Not many lookers this time,  the 110's were in ok condition but yet again there are some fabulous 6x6's that are almost brand new and in pristine condition.  One had 77km's on the odo and was in pristine condition so would be genuine and another with 280km's.  Does anyone know why these have not been used and the history behind them,  have they been in storage or just made it into service before DOD decided to move from Land Rovers to Merc's ??

Matty, I reckon with new tyres, good tarp , winch ,nice interior, ie seats match  & good cond( check under floor mats near firewall for rust), neat engine bay, no damage underneath or leaks and under 100,000 km with hrs to match, $9500 tops. However if it is exceptional and you really want it, some blokes will double that.There have been some good ones that have gone for less than $8000. Good luck John.

Went to the adelaide inspections today .... nothing was a real stand out  for quality regarding the FFR 's and the cargo's , to be honest i was a little disappointed in the quality... i did however take a look at  lot number 4 , a 6 x 6 infantry carrier .. this thing was clean...!  159 k's on the clock , 11 hours..  so clean the front  galv inners guards shine.. as do the rear rails . under bonnet is lovely and clean , still with paint markers on hose clamps , oil cap  etc etc  ( noice....!    but out of my budget range )

These are Bushranger 2 rebuilt vehicles, TGM120 tells the tale.

You can go back and look at any auction listing after it's finished. The easy way is to "Watch" the item in your Grays login, but even if you don't save it, the pages you visit will stay in your browser's history for up to 3 weeks. Every time an auction finishes, it seems there is a rush of "what were the prices like? posts. Look in your history, it keeps the pages you've viewed.

I'm moving towards buying a Perentie station wagon, probably after this current round of auctions.
How many versions of this were made? I seem to recall the standard one, and a "Senior Commander"version?
I'm also hoping to get one with a winch already fitted - anyone know if there were many of these? Or how hard is it to fit a winch of the same style to one without the original winch?
Did the Perenties run PTO or electric winches when fitted?
And finally, can anyone help with ball park prices these have sold for in previous auctions?

G'day, I've put some answers in below.

I'm moving towards buying a Perentie station wagon, probably after this current round of auctions.
- How many versions of this were made? 2
- I seem to recall the standard one, and a "Senior Commander"version? Yep, standard is the "Personnel Carrier" variant.
- I'm also hoping to get one with a winch already fitted - anyone know if there were many of these? The Senior Commanders (~11 vehicles) had winches, the Personnel Carriers (~38 vehicles) did not.
- Or how hard is it to fit a winch of the same style to one without the original winch? Not hard if you can find the bits. I haven't seen any ex-Perentie winches for sale yet though.
- Did the Perenties run PTO or electric winches when fitted? The Perenties were all PTO (as far as I'm aware)
- And finally, can anyone help with ball park prices these have sold for in previous auctions? Ballpark? $18-20K going from memory, I haven't been keeping records as some on this site have though

G'day AJ.  Agree with everything that Dervish said (I think he has my Buyers Guide;-) ).
I'll add;
By our count there are only 1or2 SC left, one belongs to AFM and is their promo vehicle.
There are only a handfull of the Carryall left.
There have been a couple of complete PTO winches come up on Ebay. Expect to pay ~$2000 for a gc unit.

Only the TD5 wagons released a couple of years ago had Warn Electric winches, all true Perenties only have the Thomas PTO unit. It is almost bullet proof, featuring a torque limiting clutch.
Give me a 66kilowatt winch that I can't break, anyday!

Prices for Carryall are as Dervish quoted (inclusive of fees and charges), SC fetch a couple of grand higher than Carryall. My sorted and registered Carryall is going for $23K.

Cheers, Dave.

I do, and I wouldn't recommend inspecting/buying a Perentie without it! The numbers I quoted are off the Wikipedia page for the Perentie though - so freely available; I don't want to be stepping on people's toes by blirting out someone else's intellectual property.

I've got to pay more attention...

A couple of ways to skin a cat; there have been a couple of wrecked vehicles with winches that have gone for around $2000-$2500. For that money, you get more than just a winch, enough "unobainium" parts to keep your wagon on the road for years

Hey Dave when chatting the other day I made a mistake regarding the AFM press fleet wagon, it is a Personel Carrier not Senior Commander. No winch or aerial brackets...but does have air con above the back seats.

Remember the old trick - tie the winch cable to a strong branch half way up a tree, then winch the landy up the tree and swing it from a branch! Love to see someone do it with a Perentie...........

Oh, and on types of 4x4, Senior commander almost all are through, only some personnell carryall and a couple of survey.  Plenty of GS and FFR and a few RFSV to go, SRV are probably unlikely to make an appearance at all.

I do know this is a constant work in progress, Richard, but the header page for Perentie ARN's starts off with:

"To date it is believed that only 36 Perentie 110's have been released to the public."

I could be wrong, but I think that is now a bit dated?

Just a warning to those looking at the current auctions.
If the log books are NOT listed, they are not there! It's taken me some time to clarify, but some of the higher priced units in Bris do NOT have log/service books with them.
Not sure if the info can be dug up from somewhere else, but it has put me off 2 vehicles, if I'm going to spend that much money.

Rusty door frames and vent surrounds, deep surface to full depth in places.

I was at Minto this morning, mainly looking at the wagons.

Speaking to Dave - one of the AFM mechanics - both of the wagons have been at Minto for a while. 48-621 and tragically 48-006 have both been pillaged to rebuild other wagons having passed through, including the units in BNE this round. 48-006 was apparently the apprentice's project. When it came in it had front end damage, so they put a new brush guard and fenders on. The bulkhead still shows evidence of the accident. The apprentice got it to run roughly, until pieces were needed for rebuilding other Perenties just this round, but it has "either a gearbox or handbrake issue". 48-621 does not run. While the bits that remain of 48-621 are in reasonably good nick, 48-006 is in terrible shape - not a project for the faint hearted. I will post photos tonight when I get home.

Hah, no points for guessing that  ;D

Here are some pictures of 48-006 as promised. First up are the unusual features; the guards on the jerry can holders (bumperettes?) found on IPVs and the 60-40 rear seats.

I didn't notice any other differences from a regular Snr. Commander. I would've liked to get photos of the ID plates on the sides of the seat box, but the doors had been cable tied closed. I don't know where it had been stationed - no logbook - but the rust had set in. There was also a crack in the chassis where the back quarter has been hit. Very disappointing  :'(

Everyone interested in the RFSV will be glad to hear that it appeared to be in excellent shape - everything that was there appeared in good order.

After inspecting on Friday, I can say there is definitely a few vehicles that do not have logbooks.  They tended to be the higher mileage vehicles.  This also means that one doesn't get to look at the latest inspection report which details works needing to be completed on the vehicle.  This is important I feel.  In speaking with an Ex-Army guy who was at the inspections, he said it would be highly unlikely for a vehicle to not have had the books when leaving service as this is/was a critical bit of information for the vehicle and would be "very hard to recreate".

Particularly considering one inspection document had listed that the vehicle needed chassis repairs including body off and realignment. This had not been completed upon exiting service it didn't appear.

CAVEAT EMPTOR!

Just a warning to those looking at the current auctions.
If the log books are NOT listed, they are not there! It's taken me some time to clarify, but some of the higher priced units in Bris do NOT have log/service books with them.
Not sure if the info can be dug up from somewhere else, but it has put me off 2 vehicles, if I'm going to spend that much money.

I had a look at the Brisbane wagons today. Contrary to appearances on the website, I thought lot 4 was in better nick substantively. 3 had quite a bit of rust in door frames and around the outer lip of the cabin floor; none in 4 that I could see.

Having said that, 4's interior was a bit ropey. Loose plastics in doors, the locking tabs did nothing, rear right door wouldn't open from the outside and the boot door was very hard to open.

These are the first ones I've looked at though, so I'm not sure what sort of quality to expect in terms of interior.

I agree with everything you said, plus both had BIG pools of water in the front floor and number 4 was very wet in the back. We eventually got the rear door open but gave up on the right rear.
The back of the rear seat in 3 was very bowed and no4 was straight and fitted with a metal backing plate (3 had a wood backing on the seat back). Will be interesting to see how they go, but I lost interest pretty quickly after seeing no books, then lost even more interest after seeing them.
They ran ok, but very rough. Shame they had no books.

It looked to me like the water had come in the vents under the windscreen, although I guess it could also indicate a seal problem elsewhere (and if it's been happening for a while who knows what rust lurks behind the dash...). Some of the soft tops had collapsed in under the weight of pooled water on their rooves. If I was Gray's I'd look after them a little better than this...

Title: Re: Defence Vehicle Disposals - 2013 onwards
Post by: Aussie Jeepster on April 15, 2014, 12:51:16 PM
And one soft top was torn as well.
What really got me was that many of the trailers had log books which were just thrown in the back of them, water and all.
I agree about Grays - a little more care might equate to a little more revenue (read commission!)

Do people realise that the vehicles in each auction usually only arrive at the Minto site in the 6 weeks prior to each auction?  It may be that the damage happened while the vehicle was in storage within Defence.

Also, as I understand it, the warehouse at Minto is run and operated by Australian Frontline Machinery (Sell & Parker).  The Graysonline part of the site is merely the site office on the NorthWest corner of the warehouse building.  Graysonline are an internet auction site/auctioneer and AFM a vendor customer.

I'm surprised Grays haven't yet twigged to the marketing benefits of photographing each vehicle with Perspex or corflute "Grays" numberplates. With the milage the photos get, the exposure would be brilliant. Would hamper our attempts at building a library of "Type" photos.

Thanks for the info, the price was good.It was the cost of getting it home that was going to hurt. There are plenty of  engine transmission combinations available at a reasonable price and the remainder of the truck seemed to be in good order. If it had been in the eastern states I think it would have made a lot more.
It would wreck out ok, as I learnt from a tractor wrecker once, you wreck the good vehicles not the ones that are worn out.

A lot of things missing from the Ambo, a seat box for example, then there's all the bits missing from the A/C blower unit.  If there were more 6x6 being wrecked as donors it wouldn't a great deal, but given the wide bodies are orphans parts will be difficult for a while.

202-482 through to 202-518 were built as GS WW for Parakeet, but others such as 50-716 have been used for parakeet modules as we have a good photo of that one (being sold as a GS) with the parakeet module set up.

Date is a typo on that one I think.  The last bushrangers built (not refurbished) were the parakeet GS vehicles built in 1998, however I understand that they were built with existing, not new, engines, and a dispensation to do so was sought and granted. I don't know the relevant adr restriction, but certainly it is well before 1998 for the 4BD1 fitting.

Hi Uncle Ho
Simple solution to your problem don't sell anything just go and buy a shed and put the new vehicle into the shed hidden amongst everything else in the shed. I can gauantee shmbo will never go near the shed, for some reason women are alergic to sheds and there contents. Then you can post in the what have you hidden from your missus thread.

I know what you mean, a real head scratcher. I thought perhaps everyone except the real die-hard tragics had grown bored with the auctions, but the going rate for the 4x4 Perenties was a smidge up from the last few rounds if anything...

I don't suppose anyone except the tragics would know how rare the 6x6s are though. Whatever the story, two people got a lot of Land Rover for their money! One of the No.5s went for $1209, way over odds - anyone know why?

Hi Phil
My experience with the auctions is that you have to cut loose but be restrained, I bid in 3 auctions and kept pulling out when the bidding got to the price that I had set in my head, the result was frustration from not winning anything. The next auction I bid in I got the vehicle I wanted because I made up my mind that I would spend a bit more than I wanted to spend and it paid off in the end. Even at $9000 these are good buying if you find a good one which there are plenty of because try and buy a county or defender with 50 to 100 thousand kilometers on the clock and you will pay a lot more than what these vehicles are being sold for.

1 only RFSV w'Mission kit. looks fair but check the chassis particularly just in front of the arear axle. A lot of red dust means a lot of rough roads.
It was a 51 FNQR vehicle, IIRC, but many were not sent back but re-allocated to other RFSU. The $20K RFSV barrier has been broken. I reckon this will too.

Handful of 6x6 cargo (a few repurposed ADs) and a lot of '88 GS and FFR.
Oh and Perth people, take it easy on that single quad you have over there. Maybe take turns on it or something  :P

Darwin looks like the place for a No5 bargain. They will probably end up going for scrap money with that many at one auction. Hmm, I wonder how many would fit on a semi standing on their backsides?!

Title: Re: Defence Vehicle Disposals - 2013 onwards
Post by: 303Gunner on July 11, 2014, 08:23:45 PM
For some time now, AFM have been flagging the prospect that the trailers won't be blue slipped OR HAVE VINs applied. The reasoning has been that when the trailers are often selling for $300-400, it doesn't make economic sense to pay $54 to undergo VINing and the blue slip inspection.

Experience from interstate sales has shown that the absence of a vin and/or rego inspection has not affected the saleability of the No5's.

More or less than you expected, natoman?
A bit of work required, despite the Blue slip. Lots of patch and paint and some mechanical.
No GM120 available.

Lot 30@$9100ish was fair money for, effectively, a new vehicle. Everything under the body appeared new or refurbished. Have seen similar go for nearly $15K.
Re-gal chassis
Suspension
Axle assemblies (F&R)
Engine and ancilliaries
Gearbox
Oh, and a cushy steering wheel upgrade.
The full Tenix enchelada! hmm, but no GM120 to confirm that to the average punter.

Lot 21 @ $9400!? well I just dont know. At a glance it needed about $3K worth of partsand lots of time on detail repairs. Maybe someone knows something that I don't..... or just another 'red haze' bidding war.

As posted, the IIMV was NOS.Yes, I typoed previously, not 1920ks but 192! As in One hundred and Ninety two ONLY! Valued by Defence @$150Kish, not bad buying. Straight to the (reccently extended) pool room. ;)

Further chatter about commercial quantities going O.S. Keep holding  your breath for a $3K road ready Perentie.....

I had thought similarly Wayne, but when you think back to the disposal of the Series 3s, they continued to bring around $4,000 at auction throughout the extended sales period but when that was over they were only worth half that on resale on the open market. Due to the desirable features of the perentie I don't think we'll see a repeat of that.

As a matter of interest, I had a look at the "civilianised" perentie on show at Minto, all blinged up and with a KLR turbo & p/s kit and repainted with shiny dark green paint - AFM trying to show what can be done with one, it looked good but still a perentie under the surface

Similar money you could get a good td300 or td5

I think if the prices came down to 4/5k like the uk ones it would
Be more worth while upgrading.

When I look at the cost to upgrade a perentie to a civie 110
power steering
ABS
aircon
locks
hard top
radio
that all adds up
The only original equipment Land Rover 110/Defender A/C that actually works and allows a passenger to have feet is the one on the current Puma engined ones.  It would cost a lot to retrofit one of those.

Just been perusing the post auction prices and lingering over the RFSV photos ...

Then noticed the RFSV data plate actually has "Perentie" printed on the plate.

http://res0.graysonline.com/handlers/attachmenthandler.ashx?t=sh&id=5921711&filename=Additional+Photos.pdf

Is this unique to the RFSVs? no other 4x4 I have seen actually has Perentie as the official variant name / descriptor.

Always assumed we called them that due to the design project / tender name, thus always in quotes.

Dave.

Can someone help me out. 48-367 is listed in the REMLR ARN database as a carryall but the same vehicle seems to be a 5 door wagon.

Am I confused or is this the term used when a 5 door doesn't have the 24V FFR system?

Anyone remember what it went for at the Greysonline auction?
Title: Re: Defence Vehicle Disposals - 2013 onwards
Post by: Dervish on July 28, 2014, 06:58:54 PM
Carryall is the term applied to both 5 door variants. The Personel Carrier - basically a stripped County - and the Senior Commander, with winch and FFR. One is a Carryall, Personel Carrier; the other a Carryall, Senior Commander.

The link you quoted is still active (as all auction result pages are), showing that it went for $13,109.

We used to have our CES (including canopy bows) marked, though didn't go as far as Jerries. Done for a couple of reasons;
Prior to patrol we would cut the vehicles down as far as possible. x4-6 = a big mess of bits. ARNs helped keep it in order.
On return the vehicles were stripped down even further for cleaning= more mess and confusion.
Also done if you worked with other units, particularly other RFSUs. Patrol 2ICs are renowned for being pack rats and 'acquiring' all kinds of shiny things that hadn't been bolted down. ;)

All the other RFSV's are converted from 2 seat FFRs with a GVM of 3200Kg.

Is this the first we have seen of this compliance? As there are only 3 seats on the vehicle, the 3rd single rear-facing seat is completely legal and compliant!

Post by: Carzee on September 15, 2014, 04:09:13 PM
It was good to inspect the lots and chat to people at Minto. I would strongly advise any buyer to get to AFM to check out the vehicles and never to rely solely on the photos unless they are willing to take the risk.

Here's my opinion and its worth what it costs you..
The photos do not show some problems at all; eg under bonnet brace rust, radiator panel surface rust, surface or exposure rust and other small troubles.
This is amongst the GS/FFR only:
One unit had no pintle hook. 2 units had no roof rack/ cam net rack. 4 or 5 units had bends in the ends of the Roo bars. I lifted a lot of floor matting. 1 unit has rust under paint on the firewall exterior above the bonnet hinge line. 2 units had dinged side panels - small bends that are hard to see in the pics.

I got under 5 or 6 units and I could see marks on the chassis from being lifted on and off semi trailers using forklift tynes.. with consequent bare metal in places. Mind you thats my opinion, I wasn't there, I didn't see. I'm guessing. Maybe some Landies, without having their wheels on for whatever reason, somehow went for a small sideways slide along railway tracks.

I was returning home to my place one evening about 7.30pm when that STUPID series 3 bonnet catch let go at 70+kph,(semi rural road) traffic following,pulled left,down the table drain,stood it on it's nose and dropped onto the canopy,I crawled out through the remains of the canopy and bars  :o, the batteries (24V) emptied themselves with the petrol (under seat tanks) all over my jeans,I was shaken but not stirred  ;)

But I was also very lucky not to be seriously hurt,thanks to a lap/sash seat belt.

Yes, I will rebuild it, probably next year,have to save for the Lightweight bonnet and panels which will possibly be ex-UK.

cheers

Sorry to hear about the bonnet causing so much grief..

Sorry I was a bit distracted slow to reply to your post. The AFM Sydney auction was in its last 2hrs. I've been in a zone from 2pm to 5.30pm really. Its a great husband wife team thing with bids and lots numbers on the move so much in the last hour.
We got the one I wanted, FFR 8/90 arn 50-257.
Underneath it had new driveline bits such as props, unis, bushes, etc such as that triangular susp arm at the back end.

The FFR tables & chairs were there too. No wince fitted but it has a logbook which many didn't. Its missing a exhaust hose but if I asked them nice they would probably have a spare.

As for price, I think I paid 360 more than average price, for my pick. I bid at 2.22 and it held to the official close at 1645. The price I bid was what I got to in the last auiction before giving up, and that was on a auction where I didn't inspect the lots except looking over the supplied web pics.

Almost $37k for the 6x6 Infantry carrier.
Almost $27k for the RFSV.

Just thought I'd post up a screenshot of some of the auction results of the 6x6's I was looking at. Had a bid on three of them but I was really looking for one to dismantle for spares to future proof my 6x6 Air Defence, so theses prices were right up there.
The Infantry Carrier that went for nearly $37k in Melbourne was still cheaper than one in the July auction in Sydney, but it only had 192km showing.

Looks like a fair vehicle at a great price.
A bit late now, but make sure you check the chassis just forward of the rear axle.
a B Coy, 51 FNQR (IIRC) vehicle like that might have some repairs there.
Have fun and prepare for the "Wow! That's cool" onslaught. oh, and get some deep heat for your jaw, too much smiling will cause some pain ;))

Congrats Adam, and you're very welcome to join REMLR anytime. That price was excellent, a gift. I had my attention on one vehicle as you do, it was pretty intense, and didn't watch the RFSVs. I brought a V8 cop car at auctions in Fivedock in '93 and that was way less stressy. That one was "any colour you like as long as its white" and this one was "any colour as long as its cam".

Hope to see you at Corowa next march. You could convoy with other RFSVs and maybe a SRV too. Too cool for school as they used to say.

Start your own thread or blog for your RFSV as the others have done. Is pretty straightforward. Use the 51-670 ARN in the thread title or use its nickname if it has one. Away you go then, documenting your fixups and adventures etc.

Alright, that'll add to the numbers - look for Landys under cam nets trying not to stand out from the other 500 Landys.

Yeah, as I wrote that I'm thinking the nets were designed to make you less visible but we use them to make us more visible. :)

I have found photos of 51 686 and 51 65? (sorry - last digit is obscured by winch cable - I think it will be 51 655, but this is based on little more than the bit of what looks like a 5 ha ha).   They are both bogged up to the gunnels (as we all were) in black soil country east of Mt Isa.

For those who pick up an ex-cairns RSFV - these have seen a lot of salt water

The shot outside the houses comes with a little story. I was getting back from a OP with the AFP and when I got to my house there was a bunch of cops and TV cameras outside. I freaked and thought something had happened to my girlfriend, but it was just some nut bag over the back fence with a shooter holding his dog hostage (the heat in Cairns does strange things to folk).  Anyway, what I didn't see was the TV camera  zoom in on me dumping a heap of crap in the house while carrying my steyr.... got grilled by the boss the next day.

Photo as taken on the highway was simply because this was the first bend we had seen in three hours of driving...

I could be wrong - but that might actually be the one in the house shot. I have a head for numbers (I can still remember my rifle numbers all the way back to 1989 - yes slightly 'rainman-esk') 

The other reason I say this though is that I can remember it was always a pain the arse having two that were so close a blind bugger like me would forever be jumping in the wrong truck (a five looks like a eight when you can't see fifteen feet in front of you). 

Unfortunately a lot of my photos are buried in boxes, but I still have good contact with two other mates who were at Norforce and Pilbara Regt respectively so I will see what else I can dig up.

Just checked the ARN list and 51-686 was picked up in QLD in Oct 2013 - so if you are out there - check under the wheel arch for black soil

Do you recall the ARN for that one? Might be wishful thinking, but my FFR was Mt Isa based, and appeared to be a bit of a pet.

That one (the EW FFR) was actually Cabarlah based, but the FFR you have was in Mt Isa because of me. I was the first ARA RSO at 51, but just before I got there we did an activity with 7 Sig Regt out that way. I chatted with the CO at the time (the scary-as-hell Tinkos) and convinced him that having FFR out at Mt Isa and a few other mainland locations.  I drove yours a fair bit when we ran a patrol commanders course in March of 93.  You have a new gear stick after I sheared it off coming down what I would describe as a cliff and getting it all wrong in the gravel (panicked and grabbed the bugger so hard I snapped it off). Yours should be In great condition as it would have seen much less off road time as Sig Platoon would drive it to a decent paddock and set up our HF antennas. it wasn't used regularly for real hard going.

Back on topic - the calculation sheet I saw a few pages back, what are the 'extras' in terms of what do they cover?  It seems a little high for some usual transfer fees etc.
Title: Re: Defence Vehicle Disposals - 2013 onwards
Post by: 303Gunner on September 21, 2014, 11:04:55 PM
The extras are a 6% buyer's premium charged by Grays on top of the bid price (like many other auctioneers) and 10% GST. It does not relate to transfer fees, stamp duty or registration costs, as these will vary from state to state.

Just got back from looking over the Melb offerings. For those looking at lot 10, we noted a note in the log book stating it had been fully refurbished including chassis 'straightening a pnd galvanisation...' After being refurb end it is still dropping a fair bit from the gear box.

Other points of note:
Lot 3 - RFSV - looks like some joker misjudged the height clearance as the driver side door frame has been a little squashed out of square
Both RFSV are 51 FNQR and entered service in 2010.
Lot 4 - I actually like this one. Started well from cold, but it is showing some areas or corrosion that will need more work that lot 4. Aux battery not performing as I would have liked.
Lot 5 - small panel dent in front left (indicator dislodged). Ex NORFORCE/7 RAR
Lot 6 - ex 7 sig. Big ding in front left panel. Anyone know where you can get whole panels cheaply as this one is plucked, but I still don't mind the rest of it. (But then  I already have a spare canopy)
Lot 7 - no service books
Lot 8 & 9 - stock standard and as expected. Both have solid km but canopies are in poor state.
Lot 10 - ARA bloke there same time as me thought the the wheels were showing a sign of toeing in a little... I couldn't see it, but I am blind :)

I also got a full copy of the RFSV Tech manual which a photographed from cover to cover if anyone wants one for free.

Lot #35 at Minto the MilPo one has a throw away chassis. It has ripples on the inside and outside of the RHS rail all the way from the spring mount to the fuel tank and kinking on the underside.  The radius rod is bent into the shape of an "S". I would warrant that the front diff housing is bent.

The drivers door lock had to be destroyed to open the door, so there is likely warping in the firewall.

A few other bits missing on the engine, air cleaner and dash.  drivers seat head rest rusted through so I would be suspect on the seat frame too. 

No roof rack, no tarp and no service book.

Welby 638 GM120 states Darwin sq, Norforce, later 51 after upgrade. Was it on loan to Pilbarra?
Anyone considering this, needs to take a careful look at the firewall, inside and out.

Dave i have a set of briefing notes here, i'm on 638, second vehicle is 649. The pic i have shows 649 but 638 is in side profile. The 'job' was ex port hedland and i was one of a few guys lobbed in to support that units tasking. So vehicles supplied rather than one of my own units.

It was an assumption of mine that it was a Pilbara unit and may very well have been Norforce unit on loan.

Well I've missed on my parts donor car!  :'(

I think it went wrong when Roughie bid me up to $2609 when complete FFR were still below $2K.  I guess that's a fact of auctions.  But even Roughie didn't know the state of the chassis, he took a glance at it and thought its O.K. palpating the rail would have revealed all.


I wonder if the current bid holder has another chassis like I do or he thinks the vehicle is better than it is?

You've got to draw your own line somewhere Diana - it often seems that with auctions there will be a buyer who can see more value in a particular iitem. Good luck to them - plenty more fish in the sea.

I took a looksee at Minto yesterday (particularly at the RFSVs) and also took a close look at a registered one currently offered for resale in Sydney - all very educational. I'll wait till after 1600 tomorrow and see if it's worth placing a bid.

Absolutely.  I calculated:

Not planning on registering a Perentie till its eligible for NSW Historic rego, so I still have three or four years to collect items and build them up.  (I currently pay enough rego on my various vehicles to employ one NSW public servant full time, or it feels that way!  ::) )

PS Isn't it amusing that we now recognise the identities of many "Anonymous" bidders in the Grays auctions? There are at least 20 or more regular bidders that I now know, and will retract/attack with my bids accordingly.

I was musing over the same thing myself not 2 hours ago actually, it looks very good for the km's it shows.  Engine bay looks original, so no rebuild on the tenix line, but some units have rebuilt vehicles time to time.  I have driven one here in tassie that is an ex RAAF unit that had a different vehicle's chassis under it, the old number crossed out and hte number for this vehicle restamped, oddometer zeroed etc, but it was rebuilt in QLD at some stage.

That one is much tidier, and I wonder if the logbook matches the oddo?  of it it has a different dashboard in it, because it looks very very tidy!

Hi Howard
A No.5 is easy to register in Qld you don't have to take the trailer you just show up with the paper work. You register it as a home built and you are away.

In NSW the No5 is in the makes and models database as
Manufacturer: Australian Defence Industries
Model (IIRC): No5 1/2 Ton trailer.

Given that the registration authorities share VIN information they may also share makes and models.

Its worth a try.

Points that I noticed.
- A few multiple buyers, including T.R from Murwillumbah NSW who picked up two RFSV and a couple of FFR
- Yet to do comparison and trend lines, but gut feel is prices down a bit this auction.

I was hoping to register it tomorrow up here in Cairns and drive to Townsville on Monday to pick it up but I don't have the dimensions, etc. Would you, or someone who happens to have them, be able to post or pm them please?

The things I need are:

1. trailer dimensions, length overall, front to axle, axle to rear, body front to axle, width.
2. tyre size (7.50R16), ply rating, cold pressure
3. tare, axle rating, tow ball coupler rating

Thanks

Had quite a internal mind battle about acquiring a RFSV .. they are so well set up ...
I have a nice FFR with winch buts its amazing how we always seem to want something better  >:( >:(

So eventually rationalised to stay with the FFR :
- cruising speed - FFR wins with the 110kph cruising speed
- extra fuel tank .. 2 Jerrycans on the FFR - will have to make do
- airpump - have a Bg Red from my early 4wd days
- storage .. damm .. will have to add a couple of lockable bins. front and one side ..
- 3 seats - not sure you can use it, but if you can RFSV wins here .. would like a middle seat in FFR
- Battery power - both good 
- Power Steering - already done this thanks to KLR
- Cost - a lot lower even including the Power Steering

Still, the yearning is still there :( :(

So the BNE RFSV came in at $19378.96 cents. Ouch.

Add $1700 for a new canopy, $200 to fix the side sills and some paint, plus rego $22k++++++++ and I think dave said it had some rust in the firewall?

what did you get
Lot 15 FFR without tarp at Minto closing bid $6,209

(http://res3.graysonline.com/handlers/imagehandler.ashx?t=sh&id=6739109&ts=635482520712500000&index=0&s=gl)

Would be interested to find out what the bird is and what unit it belongs to?  No log books.

But I suspect its had a recent re-build or engine replacement.

I am only half way through collating all the auction results and already I have seen some really good buys that just pop out (and yours, Diana, would be up there with them). The best buy I have found is an international semi with bugger all Km that went for the same as most of the ones with 300k+ km. also found one international prime with 960,000+ km! Surely you'd just run it for 40,000 to watch it clock up the 1,000,000. 

Trailers are the one I am finding most amusing. Ye olde No.5 prices go up on odd buys by $1000.... Did folks find hidden goodies?

Gavin, i'm definitely interested to see the results of your endeavours!

I suspect I bought at a low time, hence getting an FFR w/winch and serviceable canopy for $6409 auction price :)

Trailers go for crazy prices, particularly the hardly useful number 5s, mine was $309 and perfectly serviceable, but since onsold so i'd better look out for another bargain :)

As promised I have sat in front of my keyboard for far too many hours crunching the numbers across all* the auctions (*all the ones I had auction numbers for - I may have missed a few).  The cat managed to take out some of my earlier data fields and I lost some ARN details, but I now have a spread sheet with almost all the lots by Vehicle type, ARN, km travelled, Auction number, Location, and total bid and paid (with 16% add on).  For those who are interested these auctions have cleared $21,000,000 so far. 

From this I have created quite a number of graphs for the landies on sale to give an 'indication' of the direction things are heading. Please note - I have not quite done this the way I normally would (taking out high and low values from each auction etc to rationalise the results or factoring in the relative use of the vehicle - low km = higher dollars), but it is still pretty useful.

And here are the 6x6 figures for those who like their trucks BIG

Note - not everything got a graph. If there have been less than five sold I didn't bother.

I will do ones for the trucks (mog/macks/Primes) next week. 

In my spreadsheet I have also marked some of what I am calling the 'best buys' which have been IMHO:
- International Prime mover for $39,000 with only 24000km on the clock,
- Soft Top Cargo 4x4 for $7300 with only 5000km,
- incomplete Soft Top Cargo 4x4 picked up for $3000 that looked like it needed very little by way of repair,
- most of the 6x6 Air Def (great buys),
- Mack Flat Top with Crane for $30,000 that was close to brand new, and
- a Unimog Cargo Crane for only $22000

Lot #35 at Minto the MilPo one has a throw away chassis. It has ripples on the inside and outside of the RHS rail all the way from the spring mount to the fuel tank and kinking on the underside.  The radius rod is bent into the shape of an "S". I would warrant that the front diff housing is bent.

The drivers door lock had to be destroyed to open the door, so there is likely warping in the firewall.

A few other bits missing on the engine, air cleaner and dash.  drivers seat head rest rusted through so I would be suspect on the seat frame too. 

No roof rack, no tarp and no service book.
Saw this vehicle today driving west through Lithgow, on it's way to Gulgong. Not surprisingly, it was on the back of a semi-trailer!

Also - from VIC

the two RFSV are both OK - but lot 3 looks to have had a better life :)
The others are a mixed bag. All the low km vehs had Speedo changes at +100,000km so good luck trying to work out actual km wityhout seeing a log book. The 6x6 Ambo looked good as did the Cargo. I liked lot 6 (as too do the bidders who went today it appears from the bid history) as the pick of what is actually a pretty good straight bunch. Less oil leaks and other issues across the board this time.

It certainly pays to inspect the vehicles in the auctions. I had a look at the Brisbane ones the other day, the ones I thought would be good turned out to be average on inspection and the ones I thought looked rough on the website turned out to be quite good vehicles. Who ever bought lot No. 6 will need a tow truck as it had no drive, felt like a clutch problem.

Interested in the history of Lot 11, 12 and 13 at Minto.
FFRs with Winch.   Have a mate who's chasing one and would like to know.

Lot 12 is low figures (might be a rebuild ?) and I think Lot 11 has double jerry can

Would appreciate some comments on those three especially.

Only Lot 13 has faded paint, 11 and 12 look fresher, but still with bush scratches and scuffs.

All 3 have references in log books or as ownership tags on CES for 51 FNQR.

2 of them also have a nifty extension lever on the Winch Clutch Dog lever. Gives better leverage and also easier operate when leant over the bulbar. Looks a bit "homemade", looks more like a unit item rather than Genuine LR. Would be easy to make for yourself.

My guess is that they are not seeing many hits (therefore interest) on their site, maybe they worked out that there are too many people away on hols plus the issue of most people being short of cash post Christmas.

That said, remember some would be wrecks, but the senior commander and personell carrier are two different, but similar, models.

When is an auction, not an auction....
Is it just me, or do the ADF / AFM / Gray's alliance appear to be very spooked by the asbestos hoodoo??

I ask this as it appears we just lost another auction that was to be held by Gray's, at Moorebank.   Scheduled to end on the 25th Feb, this auction, for those that didn't see it, was advertised on Gray's and suddenly disappeared.   From the auction page, it seems that they had at least one Inter 6x6 and a workshop trailer that had been converted to something else?, up for grabs.   I'm presuming that the Inters had a higher percentage of asbestos in them than the Landy fleet?

Would love to hear a response to this from someone anyone in 'authority'.   It's about time they dropped the smoke and mirrors routine and informed us of what's going down.

Cheers,
Daryl the mushroom.

Thanks for that MC.   I thought I was getting altzheimer's and couldn't remember what auction they were in when I looked at it last week and couldn't find them.

The plot thickens ..... the suspense is killing me!!

I mentioned elsewhere that AFM called me about the asbestos / PU paint issue.  It was not AFM but defence that had insisted on the information discemination.

It was mentioned that there were sme minor issues of supply, but nothing that would hold up the auctions for too long.  Has anybody called AFM to ask? I've not had hte time, I started a new job last week.

The F1 with Abbey Crane and the Mk4 were all in the AAMME collection AFAIK have not had the brake shoes replaced since the 1990's so may need to be remediated.  Although they are still adjusting the LTE in the collection and having the Abbey crane working and available could be useful for re-positioning items on display, so it could be a case of re-considering the disposal.  The issue would be storage space for the F1.

Post by: Ravvin on February 24, 2015, 06:45:07 PM
I'd love to get hold of one of the F1's with the Abbey cranes. I notice there are only 33 listed in the ARN list though, and I bet the ones still in existence would be hard to get hold of.
Anyone have an idea of a rough price range I would expect to pay? I realise it would vary with the condition, but even a rough idea would be good.
Also, I see in the ARN list that they still have the winch. How is the crane driven? Is there a difference with the transfer cases or do they have a separate engine for the hydraulics?
Actually, I just realised that although they are probably powered the same way the tipper hoists on the F2's are, I have no idea how. Anyone able to explain please?

Greg.

powered by a pto off the gearbox , winch is off transfer case same as the F2, the last one I saw sold went for about $13000.00 it was complete & good mechanically but had a post service perkins engine and required a fair bit of work on the cab.
Title: Re: Defence Vehicle Disposals - 2013 onwards
Post by: Ravvin on February 24, 2015, 07:40:59 PM
Ah thanks for that. It makes sense now.
I suppose you would put the transfer case in neutral and leave the engine running in first or second, using the hand throttle to set the revs, and operate the crane from outside.

I was interested in 49 602 (Cargo w. winch) which was pretty rough visually and 48 417 (ditto but sans canopy).
49 went for $8309 and 48 was around $6k during the gone going phase, jumped to $9009 by the end.

4.   paint ... sad ...looks like it was used to test effects of sun damage in the Simpson for 12 years.
5.   looks to have had an engine change, but without logs, can't be absolute on that.

That's without inspecting it.    Condition may not be all things to all men, but is to most.

HI,

Yes, Minto is the head office for Australian Frontline Machinery - the company with the rights to on sell the Defence vehciles, they use Graysonline as their auction house.

AFM arrangements includes all vehicles to be sent to Minto (this happens to about 90%, there are a few exceptions) where a inspection, grading and admin is done. They then send some to Melb/Brs/Adl. Generally the ones they send to other locations are above average, Minto can have a lot of poor ones.

If I was you I'd consider buying from any location, a bit of trouble inspecting and transporting but if you end up with the right one it's all worth it. I bought my first FFR from a Brs sale, had RACQ inspect it for me.

Hope this helps

Regards
Scott

Thanks for the info. I had a brief look at the two from the last Brisbane auction. They were parked in the muddiest spot in the yard and I didn't bring a tarp and overalls to crawl under them. Note to self don't inspect vehicles on the way to work  :)
I'm not desperate to buy one in the next 24 hours but it'd be nice to do it before Christmas, but saying that is there any way to find out how many have been sold already and how many are left to go. I'd hate to miss the boat entirely.

Thanks for the pointer but I haven't been able to find anything on AFM's website. I must be doing something not right.

Sorry check out REMLR web page (not the forum) and go to the registrations page then perentie ARN's it will have a complete list and details of all the ones sold to date

Cheers

Wow!!! Thanks again.
It's surprising that certain types such as air defence are all gone but others are almost untouched.

Hello All,
I was wondering if anyone has had any issues fronting up for registration with a manufacturer's letter as opposed to a proper compliance plate?
