CEG



Jeff Martin Auctioneers were at their Brooklyn, Miss., facility on Friday, Aug. 16 and Saturday, Aug. 17. The ice-cold air conditioning in the main theatre area and the cooling trailers for ring 2 may have proven to be the MVP's of the day as temperatures hovered around the 100-degree mark.

Great crowds and strong bidding on the Internet made for a wildly successful auction with day one featuring a great lineup of yellow iron, aerials, mini/compact machines, backhoe loaders, road building machines, heavy duty trucks and trailers and much-much more. Day 2 featured farm tractors and equipment, pickup trucks, vehicles and related tools. CEG
