    These "Strong hold" auctions seem odd, lots of new or nearly new equipment for sale. Various business names, but they seem to go on on a regular basis. Who buys a plant's worth of new equipment,...

    How bad do you need one? How bad do you want one? How good are your negotiating skills and how low will the seller go?
