I think Ritchie Bros is going to get a lot of complaints over how miss managed it was. The first problem was parking Ritchie Bros didn't have enough shuttle busses and it was a mile walk to the site. The wait for a bid book was over a hour long my brother gave up standing in line. The concession stand was swamped the line to get foot or a coffee was too long.

Then Ritchies has a new auction format and it confused many of the people the thing they wanted they thought they were bidding on wasn't the thing they wanted.

I don't think Ritchie Bros thought that many people would show up. Many guys from my area left early they got pizzed off. Too many people you couldn't move around if you were trying to buy something it was tough.

Maybe the June auction will go better.

Oh and I just got home 10 minutes ago, no way was I going to race through traffic to the RB Auction.
I thought this thread was about a different sized machine.

I dont get discuraged when there is lots of people at the auction . Lots of people can mean that everyone is out of work, and have nothing beter to do.

Also a 2000 hour machine, that has been operated by some yahoo can have WAY more wear on it then a 6000 or 7000 hour owner operated machine.

My brother bought a couple of diesel pickups there. One was an 05 dodge 1 ton 4X4 for 8K. He said there were some deals because so many people couldn't get to the site and then when they got there, they had to wait for a couple of hours in line to get their numbers.
