Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers is about to conduct what it says is the largest Wyoming auction in its history.
The auctioneer’s unreserved equipment auction in Gillette, Wyo., will take place on Aug. 30 and will feature more equipment than the company has ever sold in a single auction in the state of Wyoming, according to Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers.
More than 800 equipment items, including a large selection of mining, construction and transportation equipment, will be sold without minimum bids or reserve prices. Bids in the auction can be made in person at the auction site (10577 Wyoming 59, Gillette, WY, 82718), online in real time at www.rbauction.com or by proxy.
Specific equipment highlights in the Gillette, Wyo., auction include the following:
