Bunch Brothers’s Spring Auction was back at the Kentucky Fair & Exposition Center in Louisville, Ky., on April 21. The previous year’s spring auction had moved across the street from the fairgrounds but found that, with the season’s unpredictable weather, the gravel lots at the Kentucky Fair & Exposition Center offered a much more reliable surface for both machines and bidders.

The annual auction, conducted for area contractors, equipment dealers and rental houses, featured a large variety of backhoes, dozers, excavators, skid steers, telehandlers, wheel loaders and various other equipment, as well as a large lineup of trucks.

The auction attracted a large and active group of onsite bidders from Kentucky and surrounding states along with a strong response from online bidders.
