"Our December auction in Saskatoon is a great time for farmers to
capitalize on a tremendous 2013 harvest season by buying equipment now
that they'll need next year," said Jordan Clarke, Regional Sales
Manager, Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers. "This auction features a great line
up of late model tractors, combines, sprayers, swathers and other farm
equipment. We will also be selling a 2010 Terex Magnum 275 TPH portable
counter flow asphalt batch plant for the first time at this auction
site. I would like to thank all of this year's sellers who have trusted
us to sell their equipment to the world."
More than 1,400 equipment items and trucks will be sold in the auction,
Eight John Deere 4940 120-ft high clearance sprayers (two 2013 models &
six 2012 models)

Equipment will be sold for multiple owners, including John Deere

Ltd., which farms 22,000± acres in Saskatchewan.
"We are selling a large package of equipment that covers all areas of
agriculture—something for everyone—including combines, high-clearance
sprayers, a wide selection of tractors and more," said Travis Moberg,
Re-Marketing Manager of JayDee AgTech. "Most of the combines we have in
the auction have had full greenlights—our technicians have brought them
back up to factory specs so they are ready to go straight to work.
We've also included some combines that have been untouched for the
owner who wants to do that work themselves. Our company has been
selling at Ritchie Bros. Saskatoon auction site for years and this is
the nicest equipment package we've ever consigned."
"We recently decided to upgrade our entire fleet, and instead of trying
to trade in one piece at time we came to Ritchie Bros. because we knew
they were the only ones who could handle an equipment package of this
size," said Craig Crone, President of P&C AG Ventures Ltd. and Director
of K&C Farms Ltd. "We have close to 30 pieces of equipment in the
auction and most of it is only one year old—it's all low hour, well
maintained and cleaned inside and out."
Consignments are still being accepted for the Saskatoon auction; anyone
