Ritchie Bros. to host largest-ever auction in Japan.

Tips for buyers Comments

Ritchie Bros.’ Narita Japan equipment auction.

Narita auction on July 2 features 330+ equipment items, including EPA compliant machines.

Our upcoming unreserved auction in Narita, Japan on July 2 is shaping up to be our largest-ever in terms of the number of equipment items that will be selling. The week beginning July 1st is what's known as “auction week” in Japan, and Ritchie Bros.' Narita event is the first for the week.

With a wide variety of equipment available from brands such as Caterpillar, Komatsu, Kubota, Hitachi, Takeuchi and Mitsubishi – including 87 EPA-compliant machines – it's an exciting opportunity for North American buyers to get some top-quality gear. The lineup also includes a large variety of late-model, low-hour equipment.

A snapshot of what's available:

  • 214 excavators
  • 19 dozers
  • 18 compactors
  • 10 loaders
  • 40 trucks and much more

“We've been seeing steady growth of international buyers attending our Narita sale over the last two years, and we're expecting that trend to continue. Buyers source machinery from Japan because it has a good reputation for well-maintained machines,” said Karl Werner, President International, Ritchie Bros. “With a large volume of EPA machines in this sale, it is expected that much of that demand will come from North American buyers as they look to international markets to source machinery.”

One of the major consignors at the Narita auction is Nippon Caterpillar. Other consignors include Kanamoto, Kubota Kenki, and Mitsui Sumitomo Finance.

Ivan Wang, Ritchie Bros.' General Manager Japan, said: “This will be the largest auction Ritchie Bros. has held in Japan and is testament to the relationships we've developed with our consignors, particularly Nippon Caterpillar. Coincidentally, it will also be the biggest line-up of Caterpillar machines going to unreserved auction this year.”
