LETHBRIDGE, AB, July 11, 2016 /CNW/ - After record-breaking Alberta auctions in Edmonton and Grande Prairie in 2016, Ritchie Bros. is preparing for yet another milestone with its first-ever two-day auction in Lethbridge on July 21 - 22. 

This will be Ritchie Bros. most diverse Lethbridge auction yet, with 1,500+ items already listed to be sold—and more items being added daily. Traditionally Ritchie Bros. auctions in Lethbridge have been agriculture-based, but this month's sale features more construction and transportation equipment than ever before. Highlights include 70+ headers, 35+ agricultural tractors, 20+ combines, and 20+ swathers, as well as bed and boom trucks, winch tractors, excavators, cranes, dozers, truck tractors, heavy-spec trailers, and much more.

"Our July auction in Lethbridge features more than 600 farm equipment items, as well as a great selection of oilfield transportation equipment, construction equipment and more. Every item will be sold unreserved—there are no minimum bids or reserve prices."
