Construction equipment auctioneer, Ritchie Bros, highlights the big brands and even unused items bound for its September auction in Dubai

Represented at the show are some 130 GCC equipment owners, and brands including Caterpillar, Komatsu, Volvo, Terex, Liebherr, Kobelco, Atlas Copco, JCB, Mercedes-Benz, MAN, Sany and Hamm.
Some highlights already lined up for the auction include:

- 20+ wheel loaders, including three Volvo L120Fs
- 10+ dump trucks, including a Scania P124CB 8x4
A particular highlight for customers at every Ritchie Bros event is the auction rule that the bidding is always unreserved, meaning there are no minimum bids or reserve prices on the items being sold.
Since Ritchie Bros added live online bidding in 2002, it has also seen steady growth in popularity of this additional bidding method.
Today, around half of the bidders at Ritchie Bros auctions in Dubai are online and about a quarter of all buyers are online bidders.
Globally, Ritchie Bros currently has 65+ massive equipment auctions on its calendar, including the Dubai auction in September.
