Need a bass boat, dump truck, cement mixer or crack-patcher? Or how about an in-the-bed toolbox for your truck ... or a 1998 Dodge 2500 to accompany that truck-box you just bought?

And here’s an intriguing auction item: you could be the winning bidder on either of two refrigerated Connex boxes — just imagine converting one of those solid steel structures into an air-conditioned she-shed or a nearly earthquake-proof bug-out shelter or a unique guest house for your in-laws.

Gila County’s having a live auction of vehicles and surplus equipment, and the rapid-fire patter of a guest auctioneer will nudge buyers to compete at the Russel Gulch Landfill on Saturday morning, Sept. 18.

Prior to the start of the auction bidders must post a $100 deposit with the cashier to receive an official bidder number. Failure to pay for items will forfeit that $100 security. Bring cash, or cashier’s check — because credit cards and personal checks won’t be accepted. Potential bidders may walk the lot, literally kick the tires, and preview items from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m.; the auction action begins at 9:30 a.m. All items must be paid for on auction day — and purchases must be driven, towed or hauled away that same day, too. And that $100 you invested? Winning bidders will have $100 deducted from the sale of the item, with the bidder paying the balance — or being refunded the difference.
