Many of you have heard of the Ritchie Brothers Auction Company.  They have created a new website that is an “everything about equipment” Wikipedia.  “Our goal is for manufacturers, associations, trade schools, equipment enthusiasts, industry journalists, and our customers and employees to embrace this new equipment wiki and give it momentum,” says Clay Tippett, vice president of internet business for Ritchie.  “We’re encouraging anyone with knowledge to edit the existing content and add new information and photos.”  There is also a link on the site to ritchiespecs.com where users may look up the specifications for just about any type of equipment.
