In a first for France, CEMEX will sell a bucket excavator in an online auction. The world’s largest construction machine for mining, a bucket excavator is tasked with continuously digging in open-cast mines.
The machine will be sold in France through Agorastore, an auction platform that supports the sale of reformed equipment. CEMEX has previously worked with Agorastore to sell TP machines in 2017. Following the success of this previous partnership - almost all of the TP machines that CEMEX put on sale found takers – it was decided that the companies would work together again to sell the bucket excavator.
The excavator, Pelerin (5RDP4CH), has 42 buckets on its chain, which was replace in 2015. Displaying a theoretical flow of 400 tph at 9 – 10m, the starting price for the machine is €580 000.
The auction will begin on 29 November and a professional activity related to the product must be justified before the start of the auction.
