The auction ended July 21st and featured a mix of power line, utility, and construction fleet equipment available.

In 2017, J.J. Kane added timed, online-only auctions to its portfolio to help increase its footprint in the secondary equipment market. J.J. Kane’s timed, online-only auctions feature a broad selection of inventory from contractors, utilities, and government agencies located across the country.
“Since adding a monthly timed, online-only auction to our regular schedule in January of this year, we have steadily seen sales and participant numbers increase. We are also seeing a different buyer at our online-only auctions than at our live sales as we continue to diversify inventory to reach a new buyer base.” - Joe Kane, Founder and President of J.J.
