EDMONTON, Alta. — Ritchie Bros. is kicking off its 2014 season with a massive equipment auction in Edmonton Feb. 26-27, featuring plenty of trucks and oilfield equipment.
Among the 3,500 pieces of equipment up for grabs are: more than 55 truck tractors; more than 45 winch tractors; more than 25 bed trucks; and more than 60 oilfield floats.
Bids can be made in person or online at www.rbauction.com.
“We’re really looking forward to our first Edmonton auction of 2014 and offering one of the largest selections of oilfield hauling equipment we’ve ever seen in Western Canada,” said Jim Rotlisberger, regional sales manager, Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers. “With oil production holding steady and gas prices creeping up, many companies are starting to get busier and looking to upgrade their fleets with new equipment, which has resulted in a wealth of gear coming to our auction. It will all be sold completely unreserved, with no reserve prices or minimum bids. Bidders can buy a piece of equipment, pay for it and put it to work the next day.”
Included in the auction is an entire set of oilfield hauling equipment from Red Deer, Alta.-based Sawyer Oilfield Hauling.
”All of our equipment was purchased new, is well-maintained and ready to get right back on the road with a new company,” said Boyd Sawyer, president of Sawyer and Oilfield Hauling.
