I hope this email
finds you with all of your fingers and toes intact after a long Independence
As we continue to thaw
out from the long pandemic, Surplus continues to receive more and more property
all the time. Like everyone else, the federal government (where we receive all
Donation property) continues to make more property available all the time.
Because businesses nationwide have begun to ramp up production, there has been
a shortage of shipping services, and as a result, an increase in shipping
charges. Rest assured, we are always
looking for the least expensive shipping options, including looking for
property that’s relatively close to Salem, or selecting items that are inexpensive
to ship. As a result, we’ve been able to keep shipping expenditures under
control, which keeps the service charges (the
prices you pay) affordable.
That being said, here
are a few examples of items we’ve been receiving lately. Keep in mind, this is
just a small sampling of what we currently have in stock. By clicking on the
product picture, it will open to more details in Reuse.
Various Hand Soaps
We’ve received several
different flavors of hand soap…..bar soap, liquid scented soap, etc. We not
only have your run-of-the-mill Dial hand soap, we have Dial COMPLETE Mint &
Shea Butter beauty bars (I don’t know if it’s the bars that are beautiful, or
if they’re supposed to make you beautiful….it says it in 3 places on the
package, so they seem to be proud of it).
21-336-02, Service Charge is $10.00 per case of 18/2-packs, 380 cases in stock
Then we have this
“Limited Edition” Dial Candy Apple Hydrating Hand Soap from the “Seasonal
Oregon Number 21-336-03A, Service Charge $12.00 per 12
ct. 7.5 fl. oz., 435 cases in stock
Next, we have this
lovely 4 pack of Dial “Foaming Hand Soap” in 4 flavors: Power Berries, Soothing

21-336-03C, Service Charge $8.00 for a four pack of 7.5 fl. oz. bottles, 141 in
Oh look, there’s more!
At this point, I really don’t know whether to eat it or wash my hands with it.
This one is a 50 pack, consisting of 17-Cranberry, 17-Autumn Maple and 16-
Pumpkin Spice 7.5 fl. oz. bottles of Dial Liquid Hand Soap. AND, if you buy…..well,
anytime really, I’ll throw in a 2-tier display floor stand seasonal display!
That’s right, NO.EXTRA.COST! You can display it all you want, you just can’t
21-336-03B, Service Charge $40.00 for a case of 50/7.5 fl. oz. bottles, and we
have 31 cases in stock
I feel so pretty right
now! Last but not least, we have this Dial Silk and Orchid Body Wash…..I don’t
know what this is…..is ‘Body Wash’ just a fancy name for soap?
21-336-03D, Service Charge $15.00 per case, 6/21 fl. oz. bottles, 25 cases in
Ah, now THIS stuff is
the real deal! This is the kind of antibacterial cleanser surgeon’s use to prep
for surgery. No fruity holiday smelling soaps here, this is the stuff that
curls your nose hairs (I mean, if you had nose hairs….). This is Hibiclens antiseptic/antimicrobial
skin cleanser. Chlorhexidine gluconate solution 4.0% w/v, 4 fl oz bottle, 48
bottles per box, and the Service Charge is $40.00. The Oregon Number is
21-299-01, and we currently have 54 cases in stock.
Okay, enough soapy
items. Let’s talk about death. In particular, insect death. You’ve all seen
them, the little blood suckers that ruin your nighttime outings. Well, we’re
here to help. We have these Catchmaster Silentrap insect traps. They’re not
zappers, and according to their website “Catchmaster SilenTrap Flying Insect
Trap quietly captures common flying pests on a glue board within the unit –
eliminating the annoying buzz and unhygienic mess you get with typical zappers.
Bulb and glue board replacements are available. So there you go. The Oregon Number on these is 21-310-01, the Service
Charge is $20.00 each, and we have 30 of them in stock.
Cable Terminal Swager tool
This item is an ATI
Tools (a division of Snap-On Tools) Company, Cable Terminal Swager tool kit
with swaging tool and dies. Mdl: AT520JK, Ser: 1952, ST825 Series Dies, 1/16 -
1/4. I thought I knew a lot about tools, but I still don’t know what this is for
(yes, I did Google it). In fact, I just completely plagiarized this entire
description. But, somebody out there is going to know what it is, and they’re
going to know that this a very expensive set (the federal government originally
paid $10,500). The Service Charge on this is just $500, and we have 2 sets of
these (the second set is DMC brand).
5 Gallon Plastic Water Jugs
Not a lot to say about
these….they are 5 gallon plastic water (NOT fuel) cans. They resemble the old
timey “Jerry” can that were metal and held fuel, but again, these are WATER
cans. They come in a kind of yucky color, but if you need water, who cares? These
sell quickly, especially during the summer months. The Oregon Number on these
is 21-313-01, the Service Charge is just $5.00 each! That’s like a buck a
gallon! We only have 183 of these in stock.
The next item is
T-shirts, long sleeve and short sleeve in sizes L and XL. The word “Army” is on
front and an Army insignia design is on the back. These are new in packages,
are 100% Polyester, and are manufactured by Unicor. All packaged individually.
The Oregon Number is 20-207-02, and the Service Charge is just $5.00 each! We
only have about 1,260 of these left in stock.
Pneumatic Circular Saws
Hey, I know what these
are (unlike the “swaging” kits above). But, I don’t know as I have ever seen
pneumatic operated ones though……well, we get the unique items, that’s for sure!
So these are Jepson hand dry cutter 8230N metal cutting pneumatic circular saw,
Sunitec/Spiznas motor, model 51115 0020. Cutting thickness: 10 mm, Air
consumption: Approx. 2 m3/min. and these are unused in their original box.
Okay, I just totally plagiarized this description again….I must be getting
lazy. The Oregon Number is 21-311-01, the Service Charge is $300 each, and we
currently have 21 of these on hand.
These ladders are
stainless steel cable construction, with nylon coated steps and quick links at
both ends. The tag on these states a max weight capacity is 2,200# (so,
you’re saying they’ll support my fat….person). These are approximately 20' L x 5.5"
W, and are unused. These are excellent for steep passages/cave climbing (think
search and rescue), emergency ladders for rescue or for 2nd floor evacuations.
The Oregon Number is 21-248-01, the Service Charge is $50.00 each, and we have
83 in stock.
ZIPLOC Bags / Various Sizes
We recently received a
shipment of new large ZIPLOC bags. These are really great for storing small
parts, peanut M&M’s or really really big sandwiches. They are all ZIPLOC
closure at one end, and other than that, not much else to say about them. I’m all
of a sudden jonsing for peanut M&M’s though……

case= 300 ea. per box. Service Charge $40.00 per box, 37 boxes in stock.

Fuel and Potable Water Tanks
We have both fuel and
potable water tanks. The fuel tanks are metal with a steel cage surrounding
them, Isomterics Inc., Sixcon MFT-205, manufactured 88-89, 900 gallon capacity,

Ditch Witch Trencher/Backhoe
Once again, I will
rely on the efforts of others, and instead of typing everything, I will simply
copy/paste what’s already been said. I am a true plagiarist, but in my defense,
it was 112 degrees in my home office that day, and I just didn’t want to think.
Ditch Witch by Charles
Manufacturing Works, Inc., Model: 6510 DD, Ser: 6B1283, year currently unknown.
Four cylinder diesel Deutz engine. Appears to have 0000.9 hours on the meter,
so assume it has turned over or the hour meter was replaced. No documentation
stating either. Includes front blade and backhoe and the rear is the trench
digger. Scratches, dings, and surface rust. Both seats are worn and will need
replaced. Starts and runs. Comes with trailer, Year:11-17-85(??) Model:

Whew! I am exhausted
with all that copy/pasting! This is Oregon Number 21-308-01, and the Service
Charge is $12,000.
This is more of a
notification of pending property, rather than advertising current items. Allow
me to ‘splain…..
We have been allocated
many plates of steel, with some or most measuring ½” or more thickness. Plate
steel is really heavy, so we’ve been bringing it in a little at a time. If you
are interested in unused plate steel at a fraction of the cost of new, contact
our agency salesperson, and he will get you more information. There will be
enough to go around; there’s something like 135 pieces coming in, but we don’t
anticipate it lasting long. So if you’re thinking about it, now’s the time! View
