Bunch Brothers Auction & Realty Inc. held a sale Aug. 12 in Middletown, Ohio for SK Construction Company.

SK Construction, owned by the Smith family, elected to downsize their fleet to better position their company for the new economy. The decision involved selling all equipment that was surplus to current needs. The move will ensure that the company can continue to provide its customers with the level of service they’ve come to expect from SK Construction.

Among the equipment up for bid were crawler tractors, hydraulic excavators, haul trucks, skid steers and motor scrapers. The auction drew an enthusiastic crowd of bidders from Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.
