Ritchie Bros.'s St. Louis, Mo., auction site held its largest-ever auction on Dec. 16. Buyers from as far away as Australia, Alaska and western Canada took part, purchasing more than 1,700 items in total.
Among the equipment highlights: a Cedarapids portable asphalt batch plant, which sold for $330,000; a large selection of late model farm equipment; and hundreds of construction equipment items, including excavators, dozers, articulated dump trucks, loaders and graders. Ritchie Bros. sold to the highest bidder, with no minimum bids or reserve prices.
More than 3,700 people registered to bid in the auction: about 1,500 in person at the auction site, and just over 2,200 online at rbauction.com. The auction attracted bidders from 49 U.S. states, nine Canadian provinces and more than 40 other countries.
