Orlando Day 5: digging the day's action

Auction Results Comments

If it digs or moves dirt, it was here - Orlando, FL Feb 18-23.

It may be Friday, and we may be in the homestretch of our Orlando auction, but the action certainly doesn’t let up. Day 5 (Friday) kicked off at 8am with some pretty amazing-looking fire trucks crossing the ramp. But that was just the appetizer for what was to come. The day featured more than 200 dump trucks, as well as bucket trucks, digger derrick trucks, water trucks, cab & chassis trucks, rolloff trucks and more, and of course one of the largest quantities of equipment types we’ve ever had at one auction – more than 800 excavators!

Over in the Virtual Tent, the excavators were being sold via photograph to both onsite and online bidders. If you’re wondering why we sell like this, there are a few reasons: it’s easier for onsite bidders to sit comfortably in one location where it cool and dry, rather than out in the yard. And of course, if we were to drive 800 excavators across the ramp, it would take considerably longer to get through all 800+.

And although they’re sold via photo, bidders still have the opportunity to test and inspect these machines in the (very hot) yard before bidding where the roof keeps the sun off your head, and the A/C keeps everyone cool.

Still need gear? We have plenty available and with three days to go, there’s still time to register and bid onsite or online.
