Bidders watch as the iron rolls past on the ramp during the Ritchie Bros. Aug. 28th auction in North East, Md. Taking a break from the action, John P. Stewart seems to have found a nice spot in this 2006 Club Car DS golf cart. This skid steer loader lineup offers an idea of just how extensive the selection was at the Ritchie Bros. auction. (L-R): Clayton Glassman, Garrette Glassman, and Anthony Mayberry of Clayton’s Tree Service, Havre De Grace, Md., discuss the finer points of this 2005 Takeuchi TL130 multi-terrain loader. These articulated boom lifts reach towards the sky at the Ritchie Bros. Aug. 28 sale in North East, Md. Bill Woehlemann, of StarCom Fiber, Scotch Plains, N.J., is all smiles as he checks out this 2004 Daewoo G30P-3 2600-lb. forklift. Christopher Quinn of Advanced Equipment poses for a picture next to this 2007 Extec  IC13 crawler impact crusher. The indoor auction location also saw its share of the action. Bidders viewed all of the relevant details on this 2006 Skyjack SJIII3219 electric scissorlift. Bidders watch the auction, intent on finding a great price on a needed piece of equipment. These Terex articulated dump trucks are waiting for their moment on stage. The outdoor lot featured a variety of construction tools, including plate compactors and jumping jacks. This 2008 Komatsu D155AX-6 crawler dozer looks like it’s ready to tackle some serious work.
