Hillcrest Construction Iron Goes on Block in Charlotte

Jackie Atkinson (L) of J&J Truck Sales in Chatham, Va., and Jason Payne of Atkinson Truck Sales, also in Chatham, thought this 2007 Kenworth dump truck was in good shape and planned to bid on it later in the day.
Eric Leatherman (L) of Leatherman Grading in Hickory, N.C., and Jerry Smith of Little Mountain Grading in Maiden, N.C., came to buy a few scrapers. Leatherman and Smith both landed jobs and were in need of several machines.
Brian Manley (L) and Jason Little, both of Hillcrest Construction in Mooresville, N.C., were hoping for a big day and good bidding for their machines.
Larry Bowen of Marshall Truck & Equipment Sales in Danville, Va., came with his checkbook in hand to buy several dump trucks.
Allan Keller (L) and Rick Coulson, both of Coulson Equipment in Parkersburg, W.Va., went over this Cat D8N from top to bottom and thought it would work out for their needs.
Butch Bouwens of LB Builders Construction Group in Mooresville, N.C., just landed a contract to build a new business park in Mooresville where Kyle Busch of KBM Motorsports will be the anchor tenant. Bouwens was in need of several machines for this project so he came to see what was available.
Timothy Blake of Blake’s Landscaping in West End, N.C., tested out this John Deere 410G backhoe. Blake tried out several machines, but thought this backhoe would work out for him.
Talking about NASCAR, football and tractors (L-R) are Ralph Curtis of Curtis Equipment in Loudon, Tenn.; Lee Mashburn of Mashburn Equipment Sales in Ringgold, Ga.; Robert Miller of United Auction in Hazlehurst, Ga.; and Jack Lyon.
Hunter Hemp of Virginia Equipment Distributors in Orange, Va., tested out this Komatsu excavator. Kemp liked the feel of the hydraulics and was pleased with the undercarriage on the machine so he planned to bid on it.

Alex Lyon & Son held an auction Oct. 23 in Charlotte, N.C.

The sale was a job completion auction for Hillcrest Construction, Neff Rentals & United Rentals.
