In addition to the used equipment items, there will be more than 1,900+ unused items from a variety of brands including late model excavators, wheel loaders, and telescopic forklifts, said Ritchie Bros.

“This is a can’t-miss event for buyers in Europe,” commented Jeff Jeter, president (US sales), Ritchie Bros. “It’s not your everyday auction; this is a global event with a selection you won’t see anywhere else. Last year we sold more than 11,500 items through the combined Ritchie Bros. and IronPlanet Orlando events, attracting bidders from more than 80 countries. This year we plan to do it even bigger, with the highest level of customer service you will see in the industry.”

Bids can be made in the Orlando auction in person, online in real time at rbauction.com or via the Ritchie Bros. mobile app, and by proxy. Equipment information is available at: www.rbauction.com/orlando

Ritchie Bros. said items being sold off-site also have inspection reports and most are backed by an IronClad Assurance guarantee.
