Auction bidding closes on September 9

An agricultural auction due to take place on September 9 will see $10 million in second-hand agricultural machinery sold online.

Registrations are now open for the Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers’ National Unreserved Agricultural Online Auction and bidding will commence on Saturday September 4, with all sales in the auction completed through Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers’ online platform.

The event is Australia’s largest ever agricultural auction with a huge range of agricultural machinery listed and more machinery to be added to the auction line-up this week.  Large amounts of late model equipment will go under the hammer including tractors, spreaders, harvesters, sprayers, balers, mowers, tillage and sewing equipment.  

Ritchie Bros. says there is strong demand for secondhand farming machinery, with wait times of up to 12 months for certain types of new machinery contributing to the interest. Buyers in the auction have already started viewing equipment online and at eight locations around Australia – Moree, Forty Mile, Brisbane, Dubbo, Mittagong, Geelong, Adelaide and Perth.  

"We are delighted to be bringing Australian farmers a huge range of great quality new and second-hand machinery in our machinery muster on 9th September. We have over 400 lots including 30 tractors alone up for grabs," says Ritchie Bros. agricultural territory manager Gary Biggs.

"We are already seeing strong interest in the form of registrations and enquiries, due to the short supply of equipment and delayed delivery schedules for new machines stretching into 2022. This auction will provide buyers the opportunity to source the machinery they need this year, without having to wait 12–18 months for stock to arrive from dealers." 

Ritchie Bros. auctions are now completely online. Rising to the challenges of COVID-19 over the last 18 months, Ritchie Bros. online auction platform has set new records for total sales, registered users, bids per item and overall sales prices. It is also now offering free virtual machine inspections via WhatsApp or FaceTime. Customers can simply call up to arrange a time.  

"We have adapted to make sure our customers are confident they can get the equipment they need easily and efficiently," says Biggs.

"We offer free virtual inspections, inspection reports, photos and service records so our buyers feel comfortable prior to bidding online." 

The auction will take place on September 9, 2021. Interested buyers can register here  or contact +61 7 3382 4444 for more information.
