Ritchie Bros. will sell more than 75 wheel loaders and 70 hydraulic excavators in two days in Australia at unreserved public auctions in Brisbane, QLD on September 18 and Geelong, VIC on September 20.
In total, close to 1,350 pieces of equipment will be sold in the two auctions—with each piece being sold to the highest bidder, regardless of price—without minimum bids or reserve prices.
One month later, Ritchie Bros. will conduct another unreserved auction in Bunbury (Perth) on October 23, 2012, which features a selection of late-model articulated dump trucks, wheel loaders and more.
“All three of our upcoming Australia auctions feature a large selection of late-model equipment—from wheel loaders to hydraulic excavators, articulated dump trucks to prime movers and more,” said Warwick Mackrell, Vice President, Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers.
“In Brisbane and Geelong alone we will sell more than 20 unused 2012 wheel loaders, and another six a month later at our auction in Bunbury, near Perth. In just two days, at our auctions in Brisbane and Geelong, we will sell close to 1,350 pieces of equipment to buyers all around the world—in fact, our last Brisbane and Geelong auctions in June attracted bidders from 39 countries.”
“The auctions will be open to the public and all equipment will be available for inspection—on site or online—we will almost certainly have something for every equipment user.”
