U.S. Army Black Hawk Helicopter Auction!

When you think of the U.S. Army and helicopters, chances are you think of the Black Hawk helicopter. Ever since the first one went into service in 1979, this helicopter has been the primary medium lift utility transport and air assault aircraft for the U.S. Army. Truly ubiquitous, they played a part in the Osama Bin Laden raids and many others. Manufactured by Sikorsky, there are many different types and a variety of models to fit many different needs, but this version is the UH-60A model with a top speed of 150 Knots. Fuel is stored in two crash worthy fuel tanks totaling 360 gallons which keeps the plain aloft for a range of 320 Nautical Miles. The strong and secure build of this craft means that it can keep a maximum 2640 lbs airborne, the equivalent of 11 combat equipped troops in addition to a pilot, co-pilot and crew chief. As a twin engined helicopter it is equipped with two General Electric T700-GE-701 turbo shaft engines rated at 1,560 shaft horsepower turning a single 4-bladed rotor and a single 4-bladed tail rotor. If you are interested in bidding in this auction, make sure to do your research and place your bid before the auction ends on January 13 at 10:00 AM Central Time (CT).

Cherish the road in your 2013 Ferarri California Convertible!

The internationally acclaimed Maranello based car company Ferrari, isn’t known for creating the most practical of cars. Few customers consider how many USB ports the car has, or whether it has enough suitcase space for a multi day road trip when they are looking through the Ferrari catalog. The one car in the Ferrari stable that comes the closest to pandering to the more practical of their wealthy clientele is the Ferrari California Convertible. For this “entry level” Ferrari, they have incorporated a few practical bits, including an easier entry and exit of the car, and a bigger trunk. I hope the talk of comfort and such haven’t fooled you though, this still is an unrepentant Ferrari to its core. The 483 HP 4.3 V8 engine rips and crackles the car from a standstill to 60 MPH in just 3.7 seconds. In classic Ferrari fashion, this car is still just as much of a fashion piece as it is automobile and the more than $200,000 base price (new) is a stark reminder of what it stands for and its standing in the automotive universe. While before you had to put down more than the cost of 8 new Toyota Camry’s combined to have this car in your hands, this auction is your chance to place your bid for a fraction of the retail cost. With a starting bid of $10,000, this LIVE auction is on January 6 at 9am in Riverside, CA. There are a few availability’s to bid online if you can’t make it to the location on that date. To register, bid, or to find more information click here to head over to www.governmentauctions.org and receive your FREE 3 day trial.

Dispense with warehouse issues with this super cheap forklift.

Forklifts! These goofy, disproportionately shaped vehicles look like some kind of grown up go-kart, but in reality, they provide a necessary function for many businesses. Most consumers take for granted that the 5o pound bags of sand, piled 20 high, on a shelf 10 feet above them had to get up there somehow. The forklift, in its capacity as a large inventory mover, is the un-celebrated workhorse that makes the modern warehouse possible. The forklift up for auction has a laughably low current bid of just $505, more than $7,000 less than the next best price! What you get for the price is an all electric forklift, manufactured by ‘Crown,’ model #40fctt-188. This machine can heft loads up to 3,600 pounds with ease and its press on solid wheels will keep on rolling longer than regular tires between replacements. On the other hand, the price for this huge markdown is the uncertainty that can come with this type of deal. The forks of the lift are included but need to be attached, the charger is not included and would need to be replaced and the sale condition is “as is.” If you are OK with that and the chance of maybe needing to do a few repairs to get it in full working order, than this huge money saving auction is for you. Besides for making sure to place your bid on this Harrisburg, PA based auction before it ends December 30 at 5:01 PM Central Time (CT), click here to subscribe to www.governmentauctions.org and receive your FREE 3 day trial!

After bidding on the Lathe, check out this Drill Press!

After yesterdays post about a lathe, I thought I would continue with the “workshop” theme. Today’s featured auction, the humble drill press, is truly a workshop staple and is used by beginners and professionals. With a precision handle that allows you to slowly and precisely lower the bit, it easily bests a hand drill with its precision, and stability. Thanks to its interchangeable drill bits, it can drill though many different materials and can be used for a large variety of projects. This specific example is manufactured by “Central Machinery” and is model T-583. Equipped with 16 speeds, 1 HP and 16 AMPs it is up for the job and ready for action. The drill is located in New Johnsonville, TN and has a current bid of just $70 with just 2 current bidders and an end time of December 28 at 7:12 PM Central Time (CT). It should be noted that the listing does mention that the drill needs repair, but with simple machinery like this, if you are handy, it should be easily repairable and you can get a handy tool at a low price!

Expand your workshop with this super cheap lathe!

The lathe is an integral piece in a workshop and is used to machine a large variety of products. Baseball bats, pens, jewelry, and bowls are all things that can easily be made with a lathe; as you can see, it is quite a useful and versatile tool. Basically, it works along the same principle of many large tools. Rather than bringing the raw material to the tool, you bring the tool to the raw material allowing you to create more symmetrical pieces and create many products that all look exactly the same. This specific model is a gap bed lathe, sometimes referred to as an ‘extension-type’ lathe. This means that for all intents and purposes it is like a normal lathe, but has the added benefit that it can be adjusted to machine larger work pieces. It can be moved horizontally to accommodate longer pieces and vertically to accommodate wider pieces. A similar ‘Goodway’ model GW-1660 lathe, can be found online costing thousands of dollars, from $4,400 and up. By comparison, this lathe is currently bidding at little more than $1,000 dollars! At a 75% discount on the lowest used price that showed up online, this is quite a find! The winning bidder will have to arrange transport from Salt Lake City, UT and place their bid before December 26 at 10:00 AM (CT), but if you can do that head over and place your bid!

Stay safe with safe safes.

Today there is a lot of conversation about guns and gun control. Should there be stricter laws or more lenient laws? The fight goes on and on. Regardless of your stance on guns, it is always a good idea to keep your guns locked up and away from others who may misuse your firearms and do harm to innocents. The best way to do this is with a good sturdy safe to keep the guns out of the hands of those who are irresponsible and in the hands of those who are responsible. Now of course, safes aren’t just for guns. They can be used for documents, rare coins, memorabilia, cash or anything else you want to keep safe and in the hands of whom it belongs. Today up for auction is just that, a 2002 American Security safe. Inside it is capable of holding 20 guns, and has a nice carpeted interior. The shelves and racks are all optional and looks to be in good repair. Currently, there are 4 bidders with a current bid of $500. The auction is based out of the wonderful Kodiak, Alaska and shipping would need to be handled by the winning bidder. The auction ends on December 23rd at 8:05 PM Central Time (CT). For more information, or to find thousands of other auctions, head over to www.governmentauctions.org and subscribe for your FREE 3 day trial!
