I.R.A.Y. Auction hosted a large heavy equipment auction June 6 in Foley, Minn.

Excitement was abound when a 966D wheel loader brought $54,000 and a 140G grader went for $57,000. Bids came in from all around the world. Buyers were registered via the internet from California, Texas, England, Canada, and Egypt.
