Due to the death of my husband, Don Gifford, I have decided to sell listed equipment, tools and personal property at public auction. I invite all to attend and appreciate your consideration.

Thank you,

Barbara Gifford


NOTE: Don & Barbara operated an excavating and tree removal business for 30 years.

The equipment has always been well maintained, housed and service records are available on most units. Don was an avid draft horse enthusiast and there is a nice selection of horse related items on this auction. The motor home is in excellent condition with only 13,000 miles on it. Please call for special terms on the motor home or for information on inspection prior to auction day.  This will be a large auction so make plans to be on Hilton Park Rd. on Sat. May 2 @ 10:00AM for the start of this fine auction. For your convenience, lunch wagon, port-a-potty and some off road parking. (Look for parking directions)


TERMS: Cash/check with positive ID. Master Card or VISA with 3% service fee added.
