November 22, 2016 – With the end of 2016 fast approaching and the auction site quickly filling up with equipment and trucks, the Ritchie Bros. team in Montreal are hard at work preparing to sell more than 2,500 items at the final Montreal, Que. auction of the year.

Over two days, December 1 and 2, Ritchie Bros. will sell a wide selection of heavy equipment and trucks for the construction, transportation, agriculture, mining, and other industries—including 135+ truck tractors, 210+ trailers, 25 loaders, 25+ excavators, 30+ compactors and much more. Every item will be sold to the highest bidder on auction day, regardless of price—no minimum bids or reserve prices. Other items being sold in the auction include a selection of farm tractors as well as snow plow & sander trucks and a range of utility trucks.

“With so many sellers looking to get equipment off their books before the end of the year, and the range and selection of equipment currently lined up in the yard, this auction is a great opportunity for buyers to get the gear they need for the coming year,” said Serge Bergeron, regional sales manager, Ritchie Bros. “People can visit the site ahead of the auction to test and inspect equipment and then choose to bid in person at the site, online in real time at or by proxy.”

Assets will be sold for more than 400 companies from across Eastern Canada, including equipment from mine sites in northeastern Quebec and Newfoundland and Labrador. Specific equipment highlights in the Montreal auction include:


•Three Caterpillar D10 dozers
•Two Caterpillar 336EL hydraulic excavators
•A 2011 Komatsu WA600-6 wheel loader
•A 2016 Western Star 4900SF sleeper truck tractor
•A 2009 Caterpillar 16M VHP plus motor grader
