Daryl Bowen (R) called to get a few last minute details about the machines he was interested in bidding on while Tyler Hains (L) and Bill Dolbier, both of Gregory Poole Equipment Company, offered their assistance on the Cat machines. The crowd gathered and made bids on the Trail King 35 ton trailer. The machine was sold to a contractor in Kings Mountain, N.C. Mickey Meekins (L) goes over the details and other pre auction information before the sale got under way while Adrian Meeks checks off the items that have been covered. Jerry Weisner (L) of Barnes Paving Company in Lumberton, N.C., was looking to bid on a few rollers and maybe a wheel loader and he asked Bill Poteat of Gregory Poole Equipment Company for some insight on the Cat machines he was interested in bidding on. The father and son team of Don and Josh Blanton, Road Builders Inc. in Wilmington, N.C., were going to bid on the vibratory rollers and front end loaders. Wendell Cain, Cain & Todd Equipment, traveled from Atlanta to bid on a few of the excavators.  He checked them out along with the loaders and found some that met his criteria. (L-R): Checking out the compaction and paving equipment are Raymond Hayes, R.M. Hays Company Inc. in Four Oaks, N.C.; Larry Taylor, Taylor’s Grading & Utility in Fayetteville, N.C., and Chip Brantley, Southland Rental & Supply. Contractors traveled from across the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic region to buy the late model well-maintained equipment that went up for bid.

After 42 years in the construction business industry, Frank Horne Construction Inc. decided to retire. Up for auction was everything from earthmoving equipment and heavy-duty trucks to support equipment. Also on the block were two residential properties and one commercial property.
