Ritchie Bros. prepares for biggest auction of the year

| 2/13/2013

If heavy equipment is your thing, this is the biggie. The world’s largest industrial auctioneer is preparing for next week’s six-day unreserved public auction Feb. 18-23, 2013, at its permanent auction site in Orlando, FL. Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers will feature more than 9,400 heavy equipment items and trucks.

Steve Kriebel, regional manager and spokesman for Ritchie Brothers, says it’s a “full yard” with every corner of the 240-plus acre auction site packed with endless rows of heavy equipment and trucks.

Kriebel says there’s something for every member of the heavy equipment industry at the upcoming Orlando, FL auction – from miscellaneous shop tools to 60-ton rock trucks. More than 200 truck tractors are listed along with hiboys, lowboys and various types of trailers.

On the final day of the auction, more than 46 truck-tractors from Walmart’s fleet will be sold to the highest bidder, regardless of price. The trucks include a selection of 2008 International ProStars and a selection of 2007 International 9400Is. Kriebel says they are equipped with APUs.

Bids in the unreserved public auction can be made on site at the 200-plus-acre Orlando auction site, online in real-time at www.rbauction.com, or by placing proxy bids in person or by phone.
