Ritchie Bros.’ ringmen were kept very busy at the Doylestown, Pa., sale, as crowds were bidding briskly throughout the morning. Bidding started right at 9:00 a.m. and most bidders stayed close to the truck to make their bids, having inspected the equipment, like these John Deere excavators, early on. Brilliant sunshine and exceptionally warm temperatures for March in Pennsylvania, made the sale very welcoming to bidders and those “just looking” alike. Todd Robinson (L), Wirtgen America; and John Leva, James D. Morrissey Inc., Philadelphia. James D. Morrissey also owns Eureka Stone Quarry Inc., Chalfont, Pa., and its trucks are a common sight around the Doylestown area. William Garges (L), owner of Winding Brook Farm LLC, Warrington, Pa., and Joseph Berezowski, came to the Ritchie Bros. sale to check out a few pieces of equipment and catch up with friends. John Shanahan (L), president, Shanahan & Luff, Newtown, Pa.; and Jerry Holmes, vice president, were enjoying the Ritchie Bros. auction as well as the great weather.

More than 900 bidders participated online and in person at Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers’ multi-million dollar unreserved public equipment auction in Doylestown, Pa., on March 23.

Bidders came from more than 30 countries, including 45 U.S. states. Close to 60 percent of the equipment was sold to buyers outside the state, from as far away as Australia, Indonesia and the United Kingdom. Online bidders purchased approximately one quarter of the equipment lots sold.

In total, more than 350 equipment lots were sold in the auction, including hydraulic excavators, crawler tractors, loader backhoes, motorgraders, motorscrapers, dump trucks, truck tractors and more.
