Equipment worth $10m up for grabs in CQ crane sale
Pickles Mining general manager Steve Wall said the sale opened on Friday and was already attracting strong interest, particularly in the all-terrain cranes and 25-tonne Frannas among the range.
“There are about 75 assets for sale ranging from light vehicles to trucks and trailers and heavy haul fleets as well as cranes ranging from 13 tonnes to 220 tonnes,” he said.
He said the Lee Crane Hire owners were retiring and had sold part of the operations to a new owner, while others assets were being monetised through the Pickles sale.
The online sale now underway through Pickles will be followed by an auction on June 4. Details of the lots for sale can be found HERE
The major auction and equipment sales company is also running a fixed price (buy now) dispersal sale of about $5 million worth of equipment from Sirrus Well Manufacturing Services.
The 300 lots are in Brisbane, Moranbah and Dalby and include a large range of drilling and ancillary equipment. (View HERE)
Mr Wall said the strongest interest was coming for items such as mud pumps and compressors rather than the large drill rigs.
Pickles is also hosting a large drilling equipment auction online for Lucas Drilling, covering about 400 assets being stored at its Moranbah yards.
“There has be a lot of interest there as well,” Mr Wall said.
“There is a good range of trailers including a side loader that has received strong inquiries and some JCB telehandlers, which have drawn the most interest. There is also a good range of light vehicles, which are always popular.”
That auction is expected to draw well over $1 million.
