Next week, the company is set to sell another 4,700+ items in Grande Prairie, including a complete dispersal of 900+ items for NTL Pipelines, Inc.

Equipment has been consigned by hundreds of owners to the November 23 – 26 Grande Prairie, AB auction, including 82 pipelayers consigned by NTL Pipelines.

One of the pipelayers, which has been painted pink, will sell with all proceeds going to the Community Foundation of Northwest Alberta Eva Marie Fund, in support of men and women fighting cancer in Alberta.

"We have always taken great care of our equipment and have provided Ritchie Bros. 400-500 documents outlining maintenance records, work orders, and certifications for our assets—we want buyers to know that our equipment is ready to go to work right away," said John Neudorf, owner of NTL Pipelines.

"This auction we are also parting with our pink pipelayer, which was painted in tribute to my sister Eva Marie, who sadly lost her battle with cancer. For the past year this pipelayer has been the first one on and last to leave the jobsite and we have donated any revenue it has generated to a charitable foundation established in my sister's honor. Thank you, Ritchie Bros., for supporting us in this charitable endeavor and we hope the new owner will continue to fight for the cause."

Equipment highlights in the Grande Prairie auction include:

- 25 Caterpillar D7G w/ 2019 Midwestern M572C crawler pipelayers
- Seven Caterpillar D8K w/ 2019 Midwestern M583C crawler pipelayers
