Killarney residents, Del and Gert Smith, are preparing for their 9th Annual Equipment Consignment sale for the upcoming weekend.  The annual April sale started with their own auction sale nine years ago - and has since grown into a large event, drawing both buyers and sellers from far and wide, to their farm just south of Killarney.

Del Smith says they have people bring their machinery from across the prairies, but also beyond Canada’s borders. “There are machinery items coming in from across Manitoba and into Saskatchewan.  On the tool side of it items come from the West Coast, Sault Ste Marie and Wisconsin.  We get items from all those different places.”

As the sale grew and more items were added to the auction block the Saturday sale will begin earlier this year at 9am with a few new additions to the mix of machinery, lawn tractors, golf carts and trucks and cars.

The Smiths say they have up to 75 vehicles driving through their yard to check out the large display of machinery and more, and they expect well over 1000 people to attend.  Last year’s sale brought close to 1500 people for the Saturday all-day event.  Del expects this year to be no different as there is a great variety of good quality machinery and other items.


Del adds that with 4 auctioneers and 2 auction rings, folks need to be aware of those items they’re interested in and to be in close proximity to that area. 

The 9th Annual Killarney and District Consignment Auction begins at 9 am this coming Saturday, April 22nd at the Del and Gert Smith farm.

The Smith farm is located ½ mile west of the junction of Hwy #3 West and Hwy #18 on the southern outskirts of Killarney just across from the water tower.
