Auction highlights include a large selection of combines, agricultural tractors and sprayers as well as a selection of industrial equipment that formed part of an asphalt plant operation in Bristol, IL

CHICAGO, IL, July 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - To kick start August 2012, Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers (NYSE and TSX: RBA), the world's largest auctioneer of farm, construction and other heavy equipment will conduct two unreserved public auctions in northern Illinois, featuring late-model agricultural and asphalt plant equipment as well as a large selection of transportation and construction equipment. Starting on Wednesday, August 1, Ritchie Bros. will conduct a complete equipment dispersal for Aurora Blacktop Inc. as part of an unreserved public auction in Aurora, IL. Highlights include a selection of wheel loaders, hydraulic excavators, motor graders, truck tractors, dump trucks and other industrial and plant equipment. Then, on Thursday, August 2, Ritchie Bros. will sell more than 1,500 heavy equipment items, including 50+ combines, 35+ truck tractors, 20+ ag tractors and more at the Company's permanent auction site in Chicago ( Morris), IL.

The Chicago auction currently features more than 1,400 heavy equipment items from more than 170 owners. While agricultural equipment is a large feature, there is something for everyone at next week's unreserved public auction. Some specific auction highlights include:

In addition to asphalt plant equipment being sold by Ritchie Bros., a selection of real estate properties, including four parcels of farmland, will be sold by Brummel Realty, LLC during the auction on August 1 in Aurora. The properties are located in the community of Bristol Township, in Kendall County, IL and form part of the complete dispersal for Aurora Blacktop Inc.
