Gila County will auction cars, trucks, tractors,  floodlights and more on Saturday, June 8.
Everything must go —  from a 1987 Kenworth tractor originally bought for $66,400 to the Ford e350 van that was valued at $24,740 when it was new in 2011.
Got a landscaping business? Consider the 1995 Vermeer brush chipper (original price $22,022).
Need a thrifty little ride to get around town? Bid on either of two 1986 Honda Trail 90s, a fuel-efficient little motorcycle.
Vehicle flippers may be enthused about a Ford Explorer 4x4 bought for $27,850 off the lot back in 2004.
Yes, Gila County invites buyers to another good 'ol fashioned live auction of vehicles, trailers, outboard motors and even a few pieces of military surplus equipment Saturday morning June 8.

The rapid-fire “hey, bidder-bidder” patter of a guest auctioneer will nudge prices upwards at Public Works Shop, 1001 W. Besich Blvd.
One-hour bidders’ preview 8-9 a.m. offers your chance to kick the tires and read the odometers on an eclectic mix of trucks, tractors, floodlights and more.
There’s even a 1984 utility trailer, humbly listed on the auction inventory as ‘homemade.’
