Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers plans to conduct a massive three-day heavy equipment auction in Edmonton, AB on April 24 – 26, 2012.

More than 4,300 heavy equipment items and trucks will be sold in the auction, including one of the largest selections of pipeline equipment [1] the company has ever sold, and every item will be sold to the highest bidder, regardless of price — without minimum bids or reserve prices. Bids can be made in the auction on-site, online in real time at www.rbauction.com [2], or by proxy.

This will be the second Ritchie Bros. auction in Edmonton in 2012 — the first, held on March 6 – 7, featured more than 3,200 equipment items and attracted more than 5,000 bidders from 43 countries. In 2011, Ritchie Bros. conducted a total of six auctions in Edmonton and sold more than 25,800 equipment items — with 63 percent of the equipment purchased by buyers from Alberta (based on gross auction proceeds).

The April 2012 Edmonton auction already features more than 100 crawler tractors [3], 95 hydraulic excavators [4], 50 pipelayers [5], 40 wheel loaders [6], 35 motor graders [7], 30 skid-steer loaders [8], 15 loader backhoes [9], 90 truck tractors [10], 80 service trucks [11], 60 flatbed trucks [12], 50 articulated dump trucks [13], 50 dump trucks [14], 140 pickup trucks [15], and much more.

Specific equipment highlights in the Edmonton auction include the following:

  • 10 Caterpillar D8T crawler tractors (six 2007 models, four 2006 models)
  • 10 John Deere 450D LC hydraulic excavators (one 2009 model, four 2008 models, five 2006 models)
  • 10 Caterpillar 572R pipelayers
  • three 2007 Caterpillar 735 6×6 articulated dump trucks
  • two 2011 Caterpillar D7E crawler tractors
  • two 2011 Hitachi ZX350LC-3 hydraulic excavators
  • two 2007 Caterpillar 14H VHP motor graders
  • a 2006 Caterpillar 16H motor grader
  • a 2006 Caterpillar 980H wheel loader
  • a 2011 Kenworth T800 T/A truck tractor
  • a 1991 Bell 206B Jet Ranger helicopter

The equipment in the auction will be sold for more than 540 sellers and includes more than 300 surplus items from Willbros Canada — Willbros equipment was made available through its exit from the Canadian cross country pipeline construction business. Willbros Canada continues to provide quality services to the oil-sands industry and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Willbros Group Inc., a global contractor specializing in energy infrastructure serving the oil, gas, and power industries.

Consignments are still being accepted for the Edmonton auction; anyone interested in selling their equipment can contact the auction site at (780) 955-2486
