Due to the death of my husband, Larry Boarts, I have commissioned

Art Smith Auctioneers to conduct a Live Public Auction here on our property to sell to the highest bidder the listed items. I would appreciate you attending our Auction and thank you in advance for your support and participation. Very best regards, Sally Boarts

NOTE: Larry retired from Gelock Heavy Equipment Movers nearly 22 years ago after 30 years of service with this company. During his life and especially after his retirement he spent 100’s of hours working in his machine shop & wood shop here on the small hobby farm. He repaired equipment for local farmers and did a lot of fabricating also. The barns are FULL!!! Dozers, tractors, trailers, machine and wood working tools, bee keep equipment, saw mill, guns, antiques, collectibles and an absolutely huge amount of fabrication steel and scrap iron will make this an Auction worth attending. We were not able to list everything as things were piled deep in the buildings. Refer back to our website as items are uncovered and added to the list.

For your convenience we will have port-t-jons, lunch truck and wash up station.

INSPECTION: Friday, September 21st 5:00PM-6:00PM
