Bidders register on the day of the sale inside Petrowsky’s state-of-the-art permanent sale site in North Franklin, Conn. Ronald Francoeur (L) and his son-in-law, Burt Moquin, represent Francouer Enterprises in Amesbury, Mass. Sammy Petrowsky (L) and Fred Goodrich work the crowd for the next highest bid. Seamus (L) and Cathal Sheelan of Powerscreen New England, Windsor Locks, Conn., were attracted to the sale by the large selection of aggregate machines. A large crowd of attendees bid in the comfort of Petrowsky’s air-conditioned permanent sale site. This massive Caterpillar excavator is the first of many to come across the ramp for sale. If potential bidders need a little extra help, a photo of the machine being sold and the current bid is displayed on monitors throughout the facility. Bidders flocked to North Franklin, Conn., for Petrowsky’s three-day sale. In addition to a great selection of excavators, a wide array of crushing and screening equipment also went on the block. Joe Ribeiro (L) and George Concachado of Riberio Construction, Taunton, Mass., inspect a Wacker Neuson roller. This John Deere 450 dozer gets a very short test drive just before the start of the sale. Dennis Fleury of Fleury Sales, Clairmont, N.H., is in the market for a compact excavator. Here’s a piece of nostalgia — a Cletrac 03C crawler tractor. Early in the morning, excavators are lined up to go over the ramp and be sold to the highest bidder. This Maintainer model 650 grader has caught the eye of Al Endriunas of Endriunas Brothers in Easton, Mass. This sale featured an extensive collection of prime crushing and screening equipment. Sam Petrowsky takes great pride in showing off this Metso Lokotrack model LT300HP tracked crusher from Mula Materials in Waltham, Mass. This is a first that a machine of this type has gone to auction in the northeast.

Petrowsky Auctioneers held a three-day auction June 20 through 22 in North Franklin, Conn.

The sale featured equipment from Mula Materials Corp. and Schiavone Company, along with the Estate of Anthony J. Marino, formerly known as Heritage Paving and excess inventory from American Equipment located in western New York State.
