After 15 years in business Peggy and Charles White of H2o Construction Company, Fayetteville, Tenn., decided to liquidate and sell off all of their machines and other miscellaneous items in this sale. Admiring the technology of the Caterpillar D6N XL equipped with the latest Topcon 3D GPS system is Shelton Greer of Shelton Greer Construction, Columbia, Ky. Discussing what machines they are interested in bidding on at the sale (L-R) are John, Doug and Will Stephens of Stephens Equipment, Sparta, Tenn.; Kyle Bush (not to be confused with the No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing, Kyle Busch) and David Bush of Bush Construc Carefully watching the response of a Caterpillar 420D backhoe loader during their inspection process (L-R) are Robby, his son Tristan and Randy Tarpley of Triple A Septic, Lenoir City, Tenn. Standing in front of their Caterpillar D8N, one of the machines they cosigned for this sale, (L-R) are Chris, James, and Mark Atkins of Terra Construction Co., Ashland City, Tenn. Dewain Ritchason (L), president of Ritchason Auctioneers, gives a handshake and a warm welcome to Tim Smith of Charles DeWeese Construction, Franklin, Ky. It was “elbow room only” as a huge selection of backhoe loaders went on the auction block with Ritchason’s Wendel Word in the center of it all taking bids at a rather fast pace.

Ritchason Auctioneers Inc. held its 2010 summer sale June 19 at its auction headquarters in Lebanon, Tenn.

Despite an absolute “gully washing” rain during the early morning sale of miscellaneous items, the skies cleared quickly just minutes before the 9 a.m. start of the heavy equipment auctioning.

Company President Dewain Ritchason said there were more than 120 consignors selling machines in the sale, with three of the consignor companies putting their machines in the sale for complete liquidation, including Terra Construction, Ashland City, Tenn.; H2o Construction, Fayetteville, Tenn.; and Glen Woodall Construction, Hohenwald, Tenn.

The next scheduled sale at the Ritchason auction facility is Sept. 18.
