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.

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!
