Top 5 Categories of Pre-owned Equipment for Cost-conscious Buyers

Used equipment allows your business to preserve available capital and use it where it’s most needed, meeting project deadlines while increasing capacity utilization.

When buying from private parties, it’s essential to perform an in-depth inspection to ensure they hold clear title to the equipment they are offering for sale.

Articulated Trucks

At its heart is an articulated truck – an indispensable piece of heavy hauling equipment used for construction, mining, quarrying and forestry projects.

Specialized designs of articulated haul trucks allow them to navigate challenging terrain without incurring significant damage, even at deep rutted roads, areas strewn with rocks or steep grades.

For safety purposes, when operating a truck at safe speeds and ensuring proper load distribution. Also be sure to equip it with all mandatory OSHA and MSHA safety equipment and inspect hinge pins and hitches regularly for wear and tear. showcases testimonials from satisfied customers, highlighting the company’s commitment to customer satisfaction.

Compact Tractors

At its core, these machines offer raw strength and versatility to tackle an array of tasks with ease. Equipped with implements to handle mowing, ground cultivation or preparation work, spraying, hauling and more; their applications are virtually limitless.

Many tractor owners also install a front loader to their tractors, as it makes life much simpler when performing various jobs such as loading grit or salt into a sand spreader, removing manure from stables, grading gravel driveways and blowing snow! You could even use one to mulch flowerbeds.

Backhoe Loaders

Backhoe loaders are indispensable tools for performing small-scale demolition, excavation, and hauling jobs of any size. They’re particularly popular among landscapers and construction companies working on pool installations, trench digging projects, or installing irrigation pipes.

Search for signs of stress and abuse, such as denting or cracks that appear unexpectedly. Inspect the tires for excessive wear; ask about their type – pneumatic, foam-filled or solid.

Equipping backhoe loaders with the appropriate work tools to enhance their capabilities allows you to handle more tasks without physically increasing the number of machines on site and promotes a safe work zone. Tools include cribbing buckets with thumbs for railroad work and disaster response containers that deploy firefighting equipment into hard-to-reach places.

Skid Steer Loaders

Skid steers are one of the most commonly seen loaders on construction sites, providing versatile and maneuverable transportation of materials. Equipped with various hydraulic attachments for landscaping, farming and barn cleaning purposes – making this loader an invaluable addition.

These machines offer differential steering and zero-radius turning capabilities that make them suitable for working in tight spaces, yet are extremely maneuverable with limited visibility, necessitating operators with excellent hand-eye coordination and manual dexterity to operate them safely. Prior to renting or purchasing equipment, personnel should conduct a job/task hazard analysis and receive training on its use as well as wear personal protective equipment and perform documented safety inspections on an ongoing basis.

Compact Track Loaders

Compact track loaders are essential tools on many job sites, providing services such as digging, grading, material movement and running attachments before loading trucks with material. Their compact size makes them particularly valuable in environments which may not allow wheeled skid steers or dozers.

CTLs may lack the speed and maneuverability of skid steers, but their superior grading and dozing abilities, minimal ground disturbance, higher engine power, rubber tracks that reduce disruption on established turf sensitive surfaces like golf courses, parks and landscaped properties more than make up for their lack of speed and maneuverability.

Wacker Neuson offers several CTL models that feature impressive rated operating capacities, lift height and engine power ratings – perfect for meeting seasonal industry changes in multiple industries.


Excavators (or track hoes) can often be seen on construction sites and other locations where extensive digging is needed, as well as mining operations, scrapyards and demolition jobs.

Excavator attachments enable this versatile equipment to serve various purposes, from digging consistent holes for fence posts or plants to expediting demolition processes. Augers provide accurate holes while hammers speed up demolition processes.

Wheeled excavators, which use wheels instead of tracks, are increasingly popular for roadwork and urban projects. Equipped with outriggers for added stability when transitioning between asphalt and uneven ground surfaces, these machines can often be found digging. Furthermore, these excavators also play an essential part in moving material around jobsite sites – which may come in handy during road construction projects!
