Travis Anderson, sales manager, holds the sign identifying which item is up for bid as the Spokane auction gets under way. Auctioneer Randy Grudzinski (R) calls the sale while Neil Gardner, general manager, keeps track of the winning bids. The Spokane auction brought in more than 600 pieces of equipment for the bidders to win and take back to their job sites, like this Mahindra 2015HST 4x4 loader backhoe. J. Stout Auctions’ Spokane sale attracted  more than 700 people from 43 states to bid on hundreds of heavy equipment and commercial truck lots. Several auctioneer clerks keep track of who is bidding on the 2006 Bobcat 442C mini hydraulic excavator at the Spokane auction. New owners of the Ditch Witch 4010 cable plow load up at the J.

The auctioneer chant, hundreds in the crowd and the feeling of excitement in the air, there is nothing quite like the auction atmosphere. On May 16, in Spokane, Wash., hundreds of people experienced their first J. Stout Auction.

More than 600 pieces of new and used heavy equipment, commercial trucks and trailers filled the new location — 8610 W. Geiger Blvd. —where J. Stout Auctions plans to hold two auctions a year.

The day featured “perfect weather for an auction,” as more than 700 people from 43 states came to the site in person or participated online. Bidders across the world took part, registering to bid from eight countries including the United Kingdom, Australia and Columbia, with items purchased by bidders from as far away as China, Costa Rica and Mexico.

This is just the first multimillion-dollar Spokane sale hosted by the company. J. Stout Auctions plans to make a permanent site in the area. Machinery will be rolling in once again for the next auction in November.

The Oregon-based company also will be hosting its next quarterly auction June 27, in Portland. For more information, call 888/230-8840 or visit jstoutauction.com.
