Bidders scrambled for a Ritchason Auctioneers’ rain poncho as torrential downpours moved in and out of Lebanon just prior to the start of the heavy equipment auctioning.
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.
