The link is to the public surplus website. The link for the app is top right center of the page.
There is 3 listings I'm looking at in my area.
The first is a commercial numatic Henry and a similar to rigid home depot shop vac.
The second is 2 smaller proteam vacs and one bigger proteam commercial vacuum. There is also a scrubber and maybe a big floor scrubber.
The third is three large proteam vacs. There is 2 NSS pig Vacuums with a hose.
The numatic is tempting. The second is a good as it's got proteam vacs. I've wanted a proteam vac for quite some time. The third has 3 proteam all bigger vacs. Then their is 2 pigs. This is the one is tempting. I'd get a proteam vac and sell the other two for a good profit. The pig I'd love but 2 pigs would be awesome. I probably would be given an ultimatum if I won this lot. I also think this will get the highest bid.
I thought I'd share the link and ask opinions on a few I'm considering.

Why would they sell those Pigs-appear to be in good condition.MANY years of life still in them.And Pigs are easy to service.

Sometimes stuff is donated to them through a grant or fund and it never gets used, or it is bought and then never used. You'd be amazed how much tax dollars get wasted at businesses daily.

I can never find businesses near me that do surplus auctions.

Its government surplus. They probably won't clean air machines. I see them for sale around here on classifieds section. The seller usually extra from a surplus auction.
The proteam is a clean air machine and it's used every where.

The orange one on the right in the first picture looks like a Vax wet/dry vacuum and carpet/upholstery cleaner.

Its a rebranded Vax. It went for $50 yesterday. The lot. With 2 pigs and 3 programs has no bidders yet. If I won it I'd probably give a pig away keep one. I'd keep a proteam and sale the others. I have a feeling there will be bidders and it will go pretty high.
