Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers will be conducting a complete equipment dispersal for a major bridge and culvert building contractor at auction next Tuesday, April 21 in Geneva, Nebraska.

More than 480 pieces of construction equipment from over 20 consignors will be auctioned, according to the company. Equipment highlights include crawler loaders, hydraulic excavators, pile hammers and extractors, hydraulic and conventional truck cranes, crawler cranes as well as flatbed and pickup trucks.

All of the equipment in the unreserved auction will be sold using a large projection screen set up in the company's main workshop, which will accommodate seating for up to 400 bidders on auction day, the company said.

"After two years, the opportunity to hold another unreserved auction in the Lincoln area and so close to our U.S .head office is very exciting for us," said Mike Schure, territory manager.

"We have an excellent line-up of industrial and transportation equipment, including a large number of crawler cranes," he continued. "[This] is uncharacteristic for a sale of this scope and for a town the size of Geneva."
