JM Wood conducted a two-day sale on Dec. 5 and 6 at its headquarters in Montgomery, Ala.
“This was one of the better December auctions in recent memory,” said company Vice President Bryant Wood. “A great finish to our 39th year in business. Prices were good, attendance was high and people seemed relieved that the political season is over and they can get their minds back on work.”
More than 1,200 items were sold at the 39th annual winter auction, including a group of 2004 county-owned Cat 140H motorgraders that sold over the internet to Belgium and a group of Mack RD 688S trucks purchased by a diamond miner in attendance and headed for Sierra Leone.
