July 7, 2016  By Ritchie Bros./CNW

July 7, 2016 – Ritchie Bros.’ fifth Ontario auction of the year looks to be a big one as more than 2,150 items will be sold at its Toronto (Bolton) site on Wednesday, July 13, 2016.

All items in the auction will be sold unreserved—meaning no minimum bids and no reserve prices. Equipment highlights include 65-plus compactors, 60-plus excavators, 25-plus wheel loaders, 20-plus loader backhoes, 55-plus aerial work platforms (boom & scissor lifts), and 120-plus truck tractors, as well as cranes, snow plows, and more.

“This is setting up to be one of our biggest summer auctions ever in Ontario,” said Danny Fortier, regional sales manager. “Customers are changing over their fleets, getting last-minute equipment for summer jobs or preparing for fall and winter work ahead. Our auction next week is a great opportunity for contractors to get job-ready equipment and trucks at auction prices.”
