Ritchie Bros. hosts the “Super Bowl” of Heavy Equipment Auctions

Ritchie Bros. facility

A 220-acre plot of land in Orlando, Florida was the site of an incredible array of heavy equipment up for auction in February. Ritchie Bros. held its largest event to date, spanning six days with sales of more than 13,350 assets totaling over $297 million. More than 15,900 bidders from 88 countries contributed to the seven percent increase in revenue over last year’s event. Of those participants, over 11,300 were online from locations across the globe.
