This large annual municipal equipment auction is held each year at the Palmyra, N.Y., highway department garage. Hundreds of lawn mowers and lawn tractors are sold each year at this sale. A crowd of more than 1,000 bidders gathers around for the start of the sale. Roy Teitsworth, president of Roy Teitsworth Inc., opens the sale to all bidders. A huge assortment of construction equipment pieces, many with very low hours, was available at the sale. With the massive number of consignments this sale can typically draw more than 1,000 bidders each year. The helpful staff of Roy Teitsworth Inc. is ready to gather all of the necessary information from the registering bidders. Representing Roy Teitsworth Inc. (L-R) are Jason Stribling, Cindy Wolcott, Milo Turner, Roy Teitsworth, and Jesse Teitsworth. Jesse Lyon (L), and Christopher Shaut, Bloomfield, N.Y., planned to bid on this Bobcat skid steer loader. Inspecting this International single axle dump are Bill Schnauber (L) and Eric Schmid, Pooler Enterprises. These one-year-old Cat loaders were one of the major sale highlights. Pictured with the machines are David Todd (L), David Todd Trucking, Gasport, N.Y., and Tim Payne, Old Orchard Concrete, Medina, N.Y. John Imiola (L) and Bob Kopin, Alden Truck, are always looking to expand their large inventory of used trucks and construction equipment.

Roy Teitsworth Inc. held its annual municipal equipment auction at the Palmyra, N.Y., town highway department garage, located just outside of Rochester, N.Y., on May 12. This event always draws a significant number of buyers (approximately 1,000 registered bidders this year) each year for a number of reasons. The variety of items being sold is massive — park and recreational equipment, lawn mowers, pickup trucks, motorgraders, wheel loaders, backhoes, ambulances and fire trucks. Anything that could be owned by a New York State municipality for any number of reasons is at this auction.

Another unique feature of this auction is that because all items being sold are owned by municipalities other municipalities can come and purchase directly from this sale without going through a bid-letting process. Much of the equipment is in extraordinary condition because many municipalities have their equipment on a rotation plan and update it after just a few years of service.
