It was a packed house in Ring 2 when Ritchason Auctioneers started off the morning selling miscellaneous parts. Kenny (in cab) and his dad, Kenneth Day, independent contractors based in London, Ky., discuss their assessment of this Cat D5G XL. Terry Howard of T & R Excavating, Maysville, Ky., inspects a Cat compact track loader. Both Coby Stephens (L) and Charles Ross of Kentucky Hardwood Lumber Co., Somerset, Ky., are deep in concentration as they consider bidding on a couple of Cat dozers in the sale lineup. Ritchason Auctioneers’ Denny Wilbanks (C) negotiates a final bid on a Cat 287B compact track loader before the “gavel dropped” at $32,000. (L-R): Mathew Kidd of Lester’s Earthworks, Pine Knot, Ky.; Todd Martin of  Martin Logging, Pine Knot, Ky.; Joel and Joe Lester also of Lester’s Earthworks; and Ronnie Bryant of Quality Construction, Whitley City, Ky., aren’t slowed down The Ritchason Auctioneers mobile registration trailer is swamped as attendees make their way to the sale early and make the auction an all day event.

It was an “away game” for Ritchason Auctioneers as it recently took its auctioning services on the road to Pine Knot, Ky. Despite torrential downpours and an occasional delay for severe lightning, the crowd of almost 600 in attendance saw some terrific auction action.

With more than 800 lots sold, there was something for everyone. The auction was held at the former company headquarters of D.H. Campbell Inc. and Tony Cordell Trucking and was a complete liquidation of the two company’s remaining assets. Other area contractors participated and consigned their equipment and parts.
