Each machine has a checklist that describes and documents the state of the engine, of the hydraulic system and the electrical system, and of the structure. These descriptions are also accompanied by photos of the details under consideration. We require the machine owners that all these informations are documented.
We ask them full transparency.
Another key factor, in buying a used machine, is the delivery time. Sometimes you can encounter delays with brand-new machines, especially for certain product categories that are highly requested by the public.
When buying a second-hand machine, timing must taken into account, all checks and all works necessary to make the machine a safe and productive investment.
Sometimes customers turn to us with very tight deadlines, which do not take into account last-minute checks and works.
If you want to have the highest possible safety we also recommend that you consider our “Stress Test” service, which tests the machine under stress conditions. This test allows you to identify problems that would not otherwise be discovered in the workshop or yard.
If no problems arise after a stress test, or if all necessary repairs are made, the risks associated with the reliability of the machine are reduced to almost zero.
|Checklist||What does it mean?|
|No checklist available||The owner of the machine decided to not answer our questions. Other than the information displayed on our websites and our general communications, we can't assure you nothing more.|
|Coming soon||We are still waiting for the answers to our checklist. It usually takes time, since it is a delicate matter, and we always push for complete and real data.|
|Reported||The owner of the machine has been asked to accurately describe the condition of each part of the machine with photos and any other documentation available. When the information is not available, it means that the owner has not been able to document it. This may indicate the need for an inspection.|
|Inspected||The machine has been inspected by one of our specialized technicians. The description and photos have been made with the utmost precision and completeness. Every available document, relating to the actual state of the machine in its entirety, has been collected and is available on our site.|
|Reconditioned||The machines with this label have received all the attention required. Any repairs and replacements necessary to achieve optimal operating condition have been made, as evidenced by tests and inspections. Each test and quality control performed is fully illustrated.|
