As a bidder, you don't have to constantly watch auctions and worry about being outbid! All GovDeals Internet Auctions feature an auto-bid. In the bid box on the auction view page, enter the HIGHEST dollar amount that you are willing to pay, and the GovDeals bidding system will bid on your behalf by placing a bid at the current LOWEST minimum bid. If another bidder outbids your LOWEST minimum bid, the system will automatically place another bid, once again making you the current high bidder, until your "top dollar" number is reached. The auto-bidding system will continue to place the LOWEST minimum bids on your behalf until you are the winner of the auction or another bidder bids higher than your auto-bid. Auto-bids are completely private and are never displayed to other bidders. In the event of a reserve price auction, your auto-bid will immediately bid up to the amount of the reserve OR to the max amount of your auto-bid if the reserve price is in excess of your auto-bid.


Bid Extension

If a bid is placed during the final 3 minutes of an auction, the auction's current end time will automatically extend for additional 3 minutes. This will continue until no bids are placed during the last three minutes.

Since most bidding occurs during the final minutes of an auction, this allows all bidders a sufficient amount of time to continue bidding.

Open auction where bidding starts at a fixed amount and increases by a minimum bid increment (or higher) by different bidders until the auction end time is reached. Once the auction has closed and a high bidder has been identified, the seller reserves the right to approve or reject the final offer.

Questions and AnswersQuestions and Answers
Q: Who built the body ? Did you purchase the truck brand new ? Regarding the last aerial test, Rotec turntable bearing within tolerances ? Thanks (5/22/23 10:13 AM)
A: HME/Snorkel No we did not, we have all books from the previous owner. I am sorry, I really am not sure what you are talking about Rotec turntable bearing. I do have the last inspections (latest is Jan 2022) of the apparatus that kept it in service. It was replaced in February 2023 so we did not spend the funds. (5/22/23 5:03 PM)
Q: What are the Snorkel model & serial numbers? There is a plate at the rear of the rig where the boom is controlled & is posted here but the writing is too small to make out. Thanks! (5/30/23 10:24 PM)
A: Model: 85 SFF AAL Serial: S50581049 (5/31/23 12:47 PM)
