There were actually three auctioneers MH81. This auction was about three time the size of what you can see in my above pic. It's a small town auction with a bunch of good folks that belong to the club. I don't think that they did too bad, especially with the chilly rainy weather. After the auction, members ran around with forklifts and loaders helping everyone load their trailers. I waited an hour and a half in the pouring rain to get loaded up, and I could see how busy these guys were. One person in an Avelanche and loaded trailer slid backwards down a steep muddy hill and jackknifed badly. The trailer was about up againsed his truck. A member pulled him up the hill with a big 4wd Kubota with a ton of suitcase weights hanging off the back. It was a mess and a fiasco that I won't soon forget. It was a relief to finally get home, believe me!
Glad it was better than what I thought you meant.
I've been to so many of these sales where they are only there to be negative about anything with rust on it.
Good for the buyers, but not for the sellers.
Then they do "choice" on a pile of poop to make up for it.
