Orlando Day Three: yellow iron takes the spotlight

The big Orlando Ritchie Bros. auction reaches midweek

Day Three in Orlando will reach for the sky when it comes to unreserved equipment auctions. Cranes will be the marquee attraction on Wednesday, while crawler tractors will occupy significant time on the ramp with 180+ up for sale.

And never forget: it's not too late to get in on the auction action. Even if you don't live in Orlando you can bid online either through our website or our convenient app. Know about our app yet? Here's a quick video we did on Tuesday explaining its features.

Experience what it's really like at Orlando

What's coming on Day Three

More than 1,100 items will sell on Day Three of the Orlando auction (Wednesday, February 22), including crawler tractors (180+), cranes (110+), asphalt pavers, boom trucks (256+), compaction equipment, flatbed trucks (80+), van and reefer trucks (145+), and more.

Highlights from Day Two - the Golden Hauler

Yellow iron took the stage in a big way on Tuesday, with wheel loaders, rock trucks, articulated dump trucks, and the mighty Golden Hauler, which was created for Volvo's 50th anniversary of its invention of the articulated hauler. On the Tuesday the golden-painted A40G was sold for a jaw-dropping $550,000!

The proceeds from the Golden Hauler sale will benefit SkillsUSA and Skills Canada, providing students with much-needed training hours and resources.
