Thank you for letting me know what the backhoe brought, that was a pretty good chunk of change all things considered.
Auctions that charge a buyer's premium really get under my skin, I try to avoid buying anything from them on principle.
Not many left around here that doesn't hit the seller 10% on the front end and the buyer 10% on the back end, internet buyers 12%. Tyler Brothers machinery auction is 8-18-18 at Maryville, Tennessee just outside Knoxville that doesn't charge a buyers premium and usually has a big sale. I would like to go.
