Ritchie Bros. auctions, the auction is completely open to the
public—everyone is welcome to come to our site to inspect and test the
equipment prior to the auction. With close to 250 of the 500 items in
the auction being agricultural, we have a really good selection of
quality ag equipment for anyone in the industry. Every item will be
sold on auction day to highest bidder, regardless of price—with no
minimum bids or reserve prices whatsoever."
More than 500 equipment items and trucks will be sold in the St. Louis,

tractors and row crop tractors—is low-hour machines and only one to two
years old," said Mike Clark, General Manager, McLean Implement Inc. "We
came to Ritchie Bros. for their help in selling this equipment because
they can reach audiences we can't normally reach ourselves. When it
