Best ever auction raises $57 million in Dubai
Richie Bros records stunning first day sale of $45 million
Ritchie Bros auction in Dubai last week is being hailed as the “best ever” after sales of rock trucks and crawler tractors took sales to $57 million across two days.
With 20 rock trucks selling between $700-800,000 each and crawler tractors going for a similar amount, sales in the first day topped at $45 million.
“We had a really concentrated marketing effort for this auction,” said Ritchie spokesperson Sarah Lloyd. “There was a lot of interest from Africa, North America and Australia. This was our best ever auction in Dubai.”
