There is real and growing appetite within key market sectors to buy and sell used and near new machinery at auction, said Peter Clark, president of Yoder & Frey.
Yoder & Frey has received multiple inquiries from consignors looking to send used equipment to the next auction at its Ashland, Ohio, site now on Sept. 26.
"There is real and growing appetite within key market sectors to buy and sell used and near new machinery at auction," said Peter Clark, president of Yoder & Frey. "Over the past year or so we've seen a massive increase in the number of consignors sending equipment to our sales as well as a measurable rise in the number of bidders signing up to participate. Everyone is looking for a deal and auctions can often deliver these. We also continue to reap increased awareness and international advantage from the partnership we formed with Euro Auctions at the beginning of last year. This sale should be a real winner for both consignors and bidders."
Some of the top lots already consigned to this sale include several almost new 20-ton excavators like a 2018 high-spec'ed Doosan DX300LC hydraulic excavator; a 2017 Doosan DX225LC machine with just 526 hours; and a 2015 Cat 320EL RR hydraulic excavator with just 1,808 hours. There's also a selection of Case 221F wheel loaders; and a 2013 JCB 926 4WD rough terrain forklift complete with 3‑stage mast, forks. There also is a growing list of dumpers, dozers, crushers/screeners, compactors, pavers, trucks, trailers and a plethora of attachments, buckets and accessories.
