Alex Lyon & Son conducted a complete liquidation auction Sept. 28 for Utilicon Corp., a large sewer and water contractor in Cleveland, Ohio, that had gone out of business. Equipment up for bid included a large variety of tractors, trailers and trucks including boom trucks, dump trucks, state trucks, pickup trucks, water trucks, and sewer jetters.
The auction also had a selection of hydraulic excavators, loaders, crawler tractors and skid steers, along with attachments and asphalt, trenching and support equipment. The auction attracted area contractors and also drew heavy online bidding.
