Another terrific lineup of construction equipment, trucks, trailers and forestry equipment was showcased at JM Wood Auction's 46th annual summer sale from June 11 to 13 at their Montgomery, Ala., headquarters facility.

"This was one of our best June auctions in memory," said Bryant Wood. "Online bidding was very strong all three days."

Featured sellers included Alabama Power Company, Southern Company, Brasfield and Gorrie, Waites Construction, CraneWorks, Joe McGee Construction and more than 300 other dealers. A Cat 988H from Alabama Power Company garnered the most attention and was sold to a long-time customer from Illinois.

In all, the event brought in more than $40 million in total sales, including approximately $7.6 million from online bids. Sixty-four percent of the auction was affected by online bidding, through either the buyer or the back-up bidder. CEG
