2013 Manitowoc 16000 440-ton headlines Houston crane selection.
Ritchie Bros.' selection of cranes available for sale at various auctions is sure to raise a high level of interest. Among the inventory is a 2013 Manitowoc 16000 440-ton self-erecting crawler crane, which will sell unreserved to the highest bidder in Houston (June 21-22).
It's among a surging selection of quality cranes selling at Houston and other upcoming Ritchie Bros. auctions in June, including Columbus, OH (June 15) and Polotitlan, Mexico (June 9).
"It's been a long time since we've seen a selection of cranes like this," said Jake Lawson, Senior Vice President, Ritchie Bros. "We have close to 200 cranes listed in upcoming auctions, including the massive Manitowoc 16000—cranes of this size and value don't come to auction often. With great selections of cranes available in Houston, Columbus and Polotitlan, this is the perfect opportunity for people to get the cranes they need for upcoming work projects."
Ritchie Bros. sells thousands of lifting equipment items each year, including 1,400+ rough terrain cranes, 450+ hydraulic truck cranes, 425+ all-terrain cranes, and 280+ crawler cranes in the past two years alone, but cranes like the Manitowoc 16000 are rare.
For perspective, a 2006 Manitowoc 16000 model sold at our June 2010 auction in Denver for US$2.5 million and that's among the top-10 most expensive cranes ever sold in Ritchie Bros.’ history. The current "king of cranes" is a 2001 Liebherr LR1800 800 metric crawler crane, which sold for $3.7 million at Ritchie Bros.' Sacramento auction site in 2006.
