Auction firm Ritchie Bros. is hosting a giant crane auction Nov. 3 to sell equipment of Alabama-based Sparks Industrial Inc.

One of Ritchie Bros. biggest auctions ever, the event will feature 38 cranes, including a 550-ton all-terrain model, an unused 300-ton all-terrain model and an unused 2021 model crawler crane.

“This is the nicest lineup of cranes we’ve sold in years,” said Jason White, regional sales manager for Ritchie Bros. “Sparks Industrial Inc. is a well-known and respected crane and rental company, with a fleet that’s second to none. We encourage buyers to get online and check out the selection because it’s not often we get to sell cranes of this quality and age.”

Cranes can be inspected in person beginning Oct. 18 at Sparks Industrial in Decatur.
