The April 24 – 28 auction attracted more than 14,000+ bidders from 59 countries, and featured equipment from close to 1,300 consignors—which is a new company record for a single auction.
"Our auction in Edmonton last week featured some of the cleanest, low-hour equipment available on the market today, attracting a huge number of global buyers," said Brian Glenn, Senior Vice President, Ritchie Bros.
Premium low-hour equipment
There were many highlights among the 9,450 equipment items sold, but one of the standouts were without question two unused 2018 Caterpillar D6T LGP crawler tractors that sold on Thursday. The pristine crawlers sold for a combined CA$1.19 million to a buyer on the internet.

Also drawing big crowds and high bids was a wide assortment of oilfield specific bed trucks. These monsters are “fan favourites” due to their size and uniqueness. See for yourself in this video.
