"It happens really fast and each item Sells, regardless of value we sell about one item a minute." The auction will sell equipment from industries such as logging, farming, paving and construction. While Ritchie Brothers is a household name in the equipment industry, "Out in the normal civilian life nobody's ever heard of us," Lubig said. "Typically, specifi- cally for this sale, I man- age Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho," Lubig said. "It's basical- ly the top of Snoqualmie Pass to the Montana border." From farm tractors to dozers and almost every other conceiv- able type of used equip- ment, Ritchie Brothers sells it. This past Mon- day, Spokane County brought out a fleet of surplus snowplows to join several early.arriv- ing school buses. "The used market is actually bigger than the new market be- cause there's so much used equipment out there," Lubig said. "We sell 20-year-old dozers that work just fine," fitting the budget of those who cannot af- ford new." In the used market there's something in ev- ery age, condition and price. "Certain items hold their value lon- ger," Lubig said. "Re- ally it's just like you were buying a car." Buyers look at the year and how many hours the equipment has operated. Hours equate to the number of miles consumers look at in purchasing an auto- mobile, but it's a similar formula. "10,000 hours on a machine is like 100,000 miles on a car," Lubig said. With its decades of experience, Ritchie Brothers also has a solid reputation in determin- ing equipment values, similar to Kelly Blue Book in the automobile world. "We'll sell a $200,000 piece of equipment that starts at zero and it goes to the highest bidder," Lubig said. "It can sell for $100,000, it can sell for $300,000." Not all that will be sold are big behe- moths. "In that list of equip- ment will be a stack of tires or a pallet full of hose clips," Lubig said. "There will be items at the end of the auction where some guy will say, 'Who'll give me $200 for this?'"
