Forestry and construction equipment on the block in Ritchie Bros. Chilliwack auction

Next week Ritchie Bros. will conduct one of its largest Chilliwack auctions ever, selling 1,450+ equipment items and trucks in a single day. 

Equipment highlights in the May 30, 2018 auction include 55 excavators, 50 compactors, 50+ truck tractors, as well as dozers, loaders, and a large selection of late-model forestry equipment. All items will be sold without reserve prices. 

"We will be selling equipment for more than 300 owners, including a fantastic lineup of forestry equipment," said Lawrence Van De Leur, Regional Sales Manager, Ritchie Bros. "We also have plenty of construction, transportation, lifting and handling, and other equipment—something for everyone. I encourage interested bidders to check out the complete list of gear on our website and then come down to our site to check it all out for themselves."
