Ritchie Bros. will host another IronPlanet online event on May 24, selling more than 2,100 items from sellers across North America.
Equipment highlights in the auction include 215 truck tractors, 135 excavators, 65 compactors, 45 skid steers, 30 dozers, 25 backhoes, 20 cranes, 20 motor graders, 85 aerial work platforms, 35 dump trucks, 35 mixer trucks, 20 telehandlers, 35 flatbed trucks, 30 service/utility trucks, 20 asphalt pavers, 10 agricultural tractors and 60 pickup trucks.
“We have a real nice selection of items in our Big May auction covering multiple industries—from construction to transportation, agriculture and more,” said Jeff Jeter, president of U.S. Sales, Ritchie Bros. “Items are now available for viewing at IronPlanet.com, with full inspection reports. Priority bids can be made right away and the auction will start next Thursday.”
Items will be sold for dozens of owners, including five 2007 Volvo A35D articulated dump trucks for Iowa-based contractor Western Contracting.
“All our trucks are ready to go to work for a new company. It’s surplus gear no longer being used in our core operation,” said Neal Everist, owner of Western Contracting. “We’ve sold through IronPlanet a number of times and keep coming back because of the excellent customer service and the ease of selling without transporting the equipment to another location first.”
