Need an Excavator - Buy Used Excavator on Jiangchun

Tags: second hand excavators for sale in uk buy excavator2014-01-27

Excavators are one of the major machineries of construction equipment industry. These heavy-duty machineries are used to drill shafts, dig foundations, grade, etc. They are almost omnipresent on construction sites, be it new work, additions, alterations and repairs. There's no doubt that excavators are one of the most essential pieces of equipment in construction. But they're expensive too. If you're looking for an excavator with a limited budget, you better consider buying used or refurbished model.

Excavators normally have a useful life of at least 8 thousand to 10 thousand hours. On the second-hand market, there are plenty of used excavators with just a few thousand hours of use logged, leaving years of productivity unused. You'll save yourself a substantial amount of money by purchasing a used or refurbished excavator. But, don't expect the machine to be cheap because they are by no means low-cost, even used. Usually, a used excavator in fair condition can be bought at a discount of 25% to 50% of the initial purchase price. Most new excavators cost between $100,000 and $500,000, while most used models cost between $50,000 and $250,000

Needless to say, excavators that have been refurbished to manufacturer's standards will be pricier than those that haven't. But still the most influential factor of a used excavator's sale price is the number of hours that have been logged, which is similar to how high mileage drops the price of a used car. To buy a used excavator is similar to buy a used car. A relentless and detailed research needs to be done before you sign the purchase agreement. Read extensive consumer reviews and ask around about which models other people purchased and why.

Make sure you do a meticulous physical examination of the used excavator you're considering purchasing. Inspect the track and undercarriage to check for broken parts and missing pieces. It's normal to see some wear and tear, but you should not expect any missing pieces. After the physical examination, take the excavator for a test drive. Does is make any weird noises? Does it run smoothly? Trust your instincts and be sure to ask about anything that seems abnormal. If necessary, take the excavator to a mechanic you trust for a complete examination. Last but not least, always buy from a dealer with a good reputation. Online auctions that offer deep discounts may seem like an appealing option. But, there are a lot of loopholes that you might fall for and you never know what you're in for. The excavator may look nice in the picture due to a fresh paint job. But, that doesn't mean it'll run well and there's nothing more devastating than buying an excavator that doesn't run.
