Cat Auction Services last week announced it will hold an unreserved public auction in Greenwood, Neb., on Thursday, July 29. Coming on the heels of heavy equipment auctions in Des Moines, Iowa, and the Twin Cities, Minn., Cat Auction Services returns to the Omaha area for the first time since its auction in August 2009. The event will be held at the I-80 Speedway in Greenwood and will feature a broad assortment of agricultural equipment from manufacturers such as John Deere, Challenger, Case and Massey Ferguson, as well as a wide array of heavy construction equipment. The auction will begin at 9 a.m. local time.
Potential buyers can view the entire equipment list online prior to the event at www.catauctions.com. Real-time online bidding will be available on the day of the auction through the company’s website. Participants are invited to register early and access the detailed TA-1 level inspection reports on the heavy equipment.
“This auction is a slight departure from our previous auctions in that there is a strong presence of agricultural equipment,” said Rick Albin, Cat Auction Services president. “We’ve proven that we can draw a large audience for our big equipment auctions, and we’re confident that our success in that segment of the business will transfer seamlessly to the ag arena. The people who deal in big iron know what we’re about. I encourage anyone who has an interest in quality farm implements to come out and see what we have to offer.”
More than 160 pieces of equipment have been consigned to the Nebraska auction thus far and more items are being added daily. The auction will feature tractors, combines, round balers, forage harvesters and sprayers on the agricultural side, and motor graders, motor scrapers, compactors and skid-steer loaders for construction-oriented buyers.
Cat Auction Services entered the heavy equipment auction arena in late 2008 through a partnership of Cat dealers with the endorsement of Caterpillar. It has been active across the U.S. The recent auction in Des Moines, Iowa, generated more than $9 million in sales.
