Ritchie Bros., the world's largest industrial auctioneer, is gearing up for its annual unreserved public heavy equipment auction—the largest on their calendar. This year, close to 6,000 used construction machines and previously owned trucks will go to the highest bidders over the five-day period from 8:00 a.m. Monday, February 15 through Friday, February 19 when the last unit is sold.
