Andy Kendall (L) of Abington LLC in Kernersville, N.C., and Mark Doggett of Doggett Construction in Greensboro, N.C., were talking about a deal for a few machines. This pair of Cat 611 scrapers were sold to a contractor in Alabama. Jerry Wilson of Glade Valley Equipment in Sparta, N.C., checked out the undercarriage on this Cat D4C dozer for wear.  Wilson said the machine was in good shape and that he intended to bid on it. Robert Church of Church’s Grading in North Wilkesboro, N.C., just finished inspecting this John Deere 650H dozer and was waiting for his friends to finish their inspections so that they all could go into the auction area. Patrick Johnson (L) of Johnson Contracting in Zebulon, N.C., and Bill Burrow of Billy Joe Burrow Inc. in Mountain City, Tenn., were in need of a few excavators. They both liked the different options that were available. Wil Temple (L) and Wil Blackerby, both of May Equipment in Lexington, N.C., were looking to buy a few machines, if the price was right. (L-R): Mark Dyer of Mega Machinery in Knoxville, Tenn.; Rick Stidham and Mark Beaudry, both of World Tractor in Charlotte; and Brett Goodman of Wells Fargo were at the sale to see who was bidding and who was in need of their services.
