Ritchie Bros. sold 3,650+ equipment items and trucks for US$43+ million at this week's unreserved public auction in Fort Worth, TX (December 2 – 3, 2015). Ritchie Bros. conducted five auctions in Fort Worth in 2015, selling a combined 18,800+ lots for US$264+ million with more than 21,200+ total bidder registrations, making it the site's largest year ever. This week's two-day auction attracted 4,400+ bidders from 57 countries, including 2,950+ online bidders. Approximately 51 percent of the equipment was sold to out-of-state buyers from as far away as Australia, Egypt, and the Philippines. Bids were placed in person, online at and by proxy.

"This auction was a fitting end to a really rewarding year," said Dolan Aucoin, Regional Sales Manager, Ritchie Bros. "We had sector strength across the board for this December auction in Fort Worth, with a huge selection of quality construction, transportation, and agricultural gear. You could look out at the yard and see late-model John Deere tractors, late-model Komatsu excavators, late-model Peterbilt and Kenworth trucks, and more—there was truly something for everyone. Everybody's worked hard, and it's been a great year, with customers giving support every step of the way."
