Getting ready to roll on day two of the sale are Myron Bowling Auctioneers’ (L-R) Tom Bowling, Myron Bowling and Greg Hengehold. Doing a test run of a Deere 350D LC are Todd Summers (in cab) and his son, Levi Summers,  Summers Enterprise, Masonville, Iowa. Looking over some of the dozers before they went on the auction block is Mark Swedlund, Mid Country Machinery, Fort Dodge, Iowa. Making the trek from New England to bid on several machines of interest are Bob Cairns (L) and Jerry Cairns, George Cairns & Sons, Windham, N.H. Skip Walker (L), High Hills Equipment, Smyrna, Ga., and Tim Thomas, Tractor & Equipment Co., Birmingham, Ala., were hoping to catch a deal on some of the Komatsu machines in the sale line-up. Watching and monitoring the pricing of the machines as they were being sold are (L-R) Gilley Key, ServisFirst Bank, Birmingham, Ala.; and RaCON Inc. owners, Benton Andrews and Keith Andrews. Many representatives of the local Alabama Cat dealer, Thompson Tractor, turned out for this big sale including (L-R) Jay Smith, Bill Baker and Billy Seals. Judging by the size of the crowd and machine variety, this was definitely not your average one-owner construction equipment auction. Myron Bowling scans the crowd for one more bid before dropping the gavel on another excavator.

Myron Bowling Auctioneers Inc. held a huge two-day sale in Tuscaloosa, Ala., on March 20 and 21 selling machines and support equipment for RaCON Inc.

One of the largest one-owner auctions so far this year, more than 550 lots were sold, most of which were exceptionally well maintained pieces of construction equipment. Day one of the sale featured trucks, trailers, light vehicles, farm tractors and related items. Day two brought out more than 300 pieces of construction equipment, with some models as recent as 2012.
