Ashley Cothran of Cothran Landscapes & Grading in Greenville, S.C., came to the sale to bid on this Cat 315CL excavator. She had been looking for a machine in this class for a few months and was happy she was going to have a chance to bid on it. Walt (L) and Andrew Panagakos of Panagakos Asphalt Paving in Greenville, S.C., were the high bidders on several tractors early in the day and were thinking about bidding on a few rollers. Joey Martin (L) calls out the machine information on the next item up for bid as Kevin McGee keeps up with the Internet bidders. Steve Crisp of Crisp Construction in Taccoa, Ga., looked over these New Holland skid steer loaders and thought they would suit his needs just fine.  He also was looking to buy a small compactor. Hugh Whiteside of Whitesides Construction in Duncan, S.C., was selling a few pieces and needed a smaller excavator. He tested out this Takeuchi TB145 machine and liked what he found and was hoping to take it home, if the price wasn’t too high. This 2008, 100-ton, SANY crawler crane, with 1,800 hours, 236 ft. of main boom and 42 to 82 ft. of jib was the largest machine in the sale.  The sale price exceeded expectations.
