September 19-20 sale event to give buyers chance to procure new heavy machinery at unreserved prices while used equipment and SUVs to also make up 1,400 lots on offer

A 2023 JCB 3DX backhoe loader, a 2020 Ammann ASC100D smooth drum compactor and a 2014 Volvo L105 wheeled loader are among several unused pieces of equipment set to headline the upcoming September auction at Ritchie Brothers, together with an impressive selection of rare heavy machinery.

The global asset management and disposition company is getting ready for its Dubai auction, taking place from September 19-20 and featuring over 1,400 lots. Among the usual used heavy equipment, a number of unused machines are available for purchase, said Ritchie Bros., offering buyers the chance to buy new equipment at an unreserved price.

Some of the unused equipment available at the September auction include:
• 2023 JCB 3DX 4x4 Backhoe Loader
• 2020 Ammann ASC100D Smooth Drum Compactor
• 2017 Nissan Sentra Automobile
• 2014 Volvo L105 Wheeled Loader

The auction will also feature a variety of rare heavy machinery in-demand for their large capacity but uncommon because most of these machines are not easily available for purchase. Some of these rare items include:
• 2020 XCMG QAY260 260ton 12x6x10 All-terrain Crane
• 2019 Sany SCC550C 55-ton Lattice-boom Crawler Crane
• 2022 Komatsu PC450LC-7 Tracked Excavator
• 2018 Atlas Copco IDM30 Crawler Mounted Blast Hole Drill
• 2019 Cat 950MZ Wheeled Loader

In addition to the unused and limited equipment available, the upcoming Ritchie Bros.’ auction will also feature a wide range of used heavy machinery utilised in a wide cross-section of categories, including construction, demolition and recycling, lifting and material handling, drilling and mining, oil and gas, power and utility, and more.

Ritchie Bros. advised in a statement that buyers will have a large choice of equipment, with over 1,400 lots including hydraulic excavators, wheeled loaders, backhoe loaders, crawler tractors, articulated dump trucks, hydraulic truck cranes, forklifts, all-terrain cranes, vibratory rollers and motor graders.
Ritchie Bros. is also expecting a surge in the number of sports utility vehicles (SUV) available to buy at the auction, including:
• 2023 Land Rover Defender 4x4 SUV
• 2018 Toyota Prado TX 150L 4x4 SUV
• 2015 Toyota Land Cruiser 76L 4x4 SUV

Shirin Bazargan, Regional Operations Manager at Ritchie Bros., said that with the inclusion of so many different types of machines and vehicles, buyers will be spoilt for choice at the upcoming auction.

“This year, our buyers will have the opportunity to add rare and unused vehicles to their fleets at an unreserved price in addition to the standard heavy equipment and SUVs. This makes Ritchie Bros.’ September auction a great time to get involved, even if buyers haven’t participated in our auctions before,” Bazargan said.

Ritchie Bros. said that buyers are welcome to visit the company’s Jebel Ali yard in Dubai from September 13-20 to view and inspect the lots up for auction. To place a bid, they can register for free on the Ritchie Bros.’ website and can also view all the items available for purchase at an unreserved price. The website also contains detailed inspection reports and the option to access a 360-degree view of some of the available lots, which includes a look at the machines’ interior as well. Once registered, buyers can add items to their watch-list and receive updates on these items.

“If you want to expand your fleet and are looking for a cost-effective and time-efficient solution, the upcoming Ritchie Bros. auction is the ideal way to source reliable and durable heavy machinery,” said Ritchie Bros, in its statement, asking prospective buyers and sellers to visit for more information or contact the Dubai office on +971 4 812 0600.
