The production capacities of the machinery on the market depend on the technological evolution that characterizes them

The trenchers have not experienced significant technological advancements since the early 2000s. The automation of the advancement and excavation systems, was the last major innovation, relevant to production capacity. 

A new trencher and a used trencher from early 2000s, brought back in excellent operating conditions, have very similar production capacities.

It is almost always possible, to turn back a used trencher toits optimal production condition, at an affordable cost compared to the new one

Starting with a used machine with all the relevant technological advances, and relying on our specialized technical team, we can repair or replace all critical parts for reliability and production, bringing it back to the optimal operating condition.

We work with manufacturers and their workshops using original spare parts.

Thanks to the collaboration with the manufacturers and authorized workshops, we can offer warranty packages, that protect against unexpected costs.

Used trenchers are not all the same, carefully evaluate our proposals to understand how to get the most out of your investment.

The economic value of the new collapses after purchase

The average depreciation of a new machine, after a short use, is about one third of its value.

A used machinery has depreciation thresholds in line with its real production capacities and in line with its future potential: the higher its productivity over time, the higher the value.
