    Anyone here in the Lower Mainland/Fraser Valley going to the new RB Auction opening in Chilliwack?

    If I get my ditching done early enough I can make it out before 5pm, I already know of 2 of my YT subscribers that are going.

    I checked the listings, more junk than good used it seems, I was looking for skid steer and excavator attachments.

    There won't be any deals judging by how many people were previewing today. The only time I ever got a deal at RB was in a snowstorm a few years ago and not many people stuck around.

    I saw an exact copy of my F450, but manual tranny and polished rims, and all those skid steer attachments, oh baby if I had some more business for that!

    Those are not polished wheels on that F-450 cab and chassis they are stainless wheel simulators. That 450 will probably go cheap because it has a 6spd manual.

    I doubt you will get any deals tomorrow at that auction it will probably be a huge crowd and they have to buy something can't leave empty handed even if they don't really need what they bought.

    The trouble with RB auctions is that most people who go have 5 g in their jeans that they can piss away on a pickup or an attachment or a spare hoe if something catches their eye. You get deals on pallets of junk sometimes, but not too much else. Its a big dogs toy room.

    I was just at the Ritchie Brothers auction in Edmonton and everything I watched went high there too.
