Following up on its successful IronPlanet "Big Spring" event in March, Ritchie Bros. is set to host another special IronPlanet online event on May 24, selling 2,100+ items from sellers across North America.

"We have a real nice selection of items in our Big May auction covering multiple industries—from construction to transportation, agriculture and more," said Jeff Jeter, President of U.S. Sales, Ritchie Bros. "Items are now available for viewing at, with full inspection reports. Priority bids can be made right away and the auction will start next Thursday."

Items will be sold for dozens of owners, including five 2007 Volvo A35D articulated dump trucks for Iowa-based contractor Western Contracting Corporation.

"All our trucks are ready to go to work for a new company—it's surplus gear no longer being used in our core operation," said Neal Everist, Owner of Western Contracting. "We've sold through IronPlanet a number of times and keep coming back because of the excellent customer service and the ease of selling without transporting the equipment to another location first."

Equipment highlights in the May 24 auction include the following:

  • 215+ truck tractors,
  • 135+ excavators,
  • 65+ compactors,
  • 45+ skid steers,
  • 30+ dozers,
