"Supply chain issues continue to disrupt the equipment market, resulting in volume declines and older assets with higher usage coming to market in 2021," said Doug Olive, Senior Vice President (Pricing), Ritchie Bros. "This tightening supply combined with the unprecedented demand we are driving through our numerous marketplaces is resulting in strong pricing across nearly all asset categories, including dirt moving equipment like dozers, loaders, and articulated dump trucks."

Doug Rusch, Managing Director of Rouse Sales, added, "We continue to observe strong used equipment prices, with retail values rising a further 2% in October. Coinciding with this rise we are also seeing a lingering slowdown in transaction volumes, as ongoing supply chain issues continue to drive cautious fleet management decisions. Retail values now stand 14% higher than in January 2021."
