Owner Emory Stull set to retire after 45 years in the land clearing
SYKESVILLE, MD, Sept. 13, 2011 /CNW/ - Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers (NYSE
and TSX: RBA), the world's largest industrial auctioneer, will conduct
a one-owner, complete dispersal auction for Emory N. Stull, Inc. in
Sykesville, Maryland on Tuesday, September 20, 2011. Owner Emory Stull
is retiring after 45 years in the land clearing business and selling 80
heavy equipment items and trucks at the unreserved public auction. All
of his equipment will be sold to the highest bidders on auction
day—regardless of price. There are no minimum bids and no reserve
prices for the items being sold. Bids can be made in person at the
auction site, online in real time at www.rbauction.com or by proxy.
Emory Stull has purchased and sold a few pieces of equipment at Ritchie
Bros. unreserved auctions within the last 10 years; this will be the
first time he has sold a large selection of items in one auction. The
September 20 auction will take place in his company's yard.
"The equipment I am selling is in excellent condition for a land
clearing company and has been well-maintained. Every piece that I have
in this dispersal can be bought today and put to work tomorrow," said
The package of heavy equipment being sold for Emory N. Stull, Inc.
includes wheel loaders, hydraulic excavators, skidders, crawler loaders, environmental equipment, log trailers, chip
trailers, utility trucks and truck tractors. Detailed equipment information, including multiple high-resolution
photos of each item, can be viewed at www.rbauction.com. Interested buyers can also visit the auction site to test, inspect and
