Get all of your municipal road graders, dissolved oxygen monitors and eye-wash stations at the N.H. auction this weekend

A road grader from the city of Laconia is unloaded onto the grounds of state-owned White Farm Facility on Thursday, May 10, 2018 for the upcoming state auction, which will take place on Saturday, May 19.

Via David Brooks at the Concord Monitor:

If the trolley doesn’t grab your attention, maybe the 60 Dodge Chargers will.


Or the pair of medical research devices that look like a cross between chandeliers and a high school chemistry lab.


Or the file cabinets. Lots and lots of file cabinets.


“I guess people are going paperless,” said Jason Wright, manager of the state-owned White Farm facility in Concord, gesturing at the rows of file cabinets that have ended up in a former cow barn that stores surplus government items awaiting auction.


It will all go on sale Saturday at the first of two auctions this year of surplus material at White Farm, on Route 13 in Concord.
