Escalators for sale on Ebay offers potential buyer’s a wide range of options that they may not have if they are only looking within their county or state.  Excavators are one of the standard tools for many different industries and segments of different industries and as such, the turnover throughout the economy as a whole is fairly brisk.  Construction firms are constantly in different stages of evolution with some going bankrupt and some just starting out.  More established firms are usually somewhere in between, often upgrading their equipment to achieve or maintain a competitive advantage.

Purchasing an excavator is a major capital purchase that can easily start in the tens of thousands of dollars and quickly rise to an investment of over a hundred thousand.  Any opportunity to save money on a purchase of this size is going to generate significant savings and given the amount of excavators for sale on Ebay in the current market, there is a high probability that there will be a suitable bargain on offer there somewhere.

One of the key advantages that Ebay has to offer and the key to its continued success is not only the relatively low fees that it charges, especially compared to the commissions a professional construction or farm equipment agent would charge, but also that it has a certain number of safeguards in place to protect both the buyer and the seller from ending up at the end of an unfair or fraudulent transaction. There is no guarantee with a regular in person purchase, that there will be the same protection in place.

One of the first things to check when considering a purchase on Ebay is whether there is any feedback from previous customers of the person offering an escalator for sale on Ebay.  There are many dealers in action who use Ebay as their primary marketing tool and will, without a doubt have customer comments regarding their prior transactions.

While examining the different offers on the site there is also the option to do further research on any excavator for sale on Ebay just by switching windows on the browser.  Having instant research and pricing offers from other sites allows purchasers to assess the true value of any excavator they find offered on Ebay and also gain full technical information on the product to decide whether it will suit their exact needs.

When negotiating an Ebay purchase there is usually the opportunity to ask questions of the seller to find out: the history of the excavator; what the payment and delivery terms are; how much the seller knows about the excavator and if there are any issues with it.  There is also the opportunity to do more research not only about the excavator on offer but also the seller and the seller’s location which can be a good indicator of the type of environmental conditions the excavator will have been operating in.

Having said all that, there are several potential disadvantages to excavators for sale on Ebay.  The most important is that when purchasing something online, unless by some coincidence it is nearby, there is unlikely to be an opportunity to see it in action before purchasing.  There may be ways around this such as requesting a video of it in action or, given the potential size of the purchase, travelling to the location in order to perform a physical inspection.

Other potential issues that can arise include the transportation aspect of physically getting the excavator from the seller’s location to the purchasers.  Certainly with the larger excavators this could add considerable expense and time as specialized transportation equipment may be required although in most cases this is factored into the price.  There is also the issue of the time line as it could take several weeks to arrange for a larger excavator to be shipped across the country.  The best advice is to consider all aspects of the transaction before taking the plunge.

Compact Excavators

There are 4 types of compact Kobelco excavators for sale and each of them has the option of having an extra long arm installed for additional dig depth.  The smallest of the entire range is the compact 27SR which weighs a total of 5,555 pounds with its diesel engine developing 21.6 horsepower at 2,200 rpm.  This model is a zero tail swing design and the working range manages a maximum dig depth of 8.4 feet with a bucket breakout force of 6,351 pounds per foot and a bucket capacity of 2.8 cubic feet.  The biggest Kobelco compact model is the 55SRX which weighs in at 12,295 pounds with the diesel engine generating 39.3 horsepower at 2,400 rpm.  The working range provides a maximum dig depth of 12.1 feet with 11,240 pounds per foot of bucket breakout strength and a bucket capacity of 6.3 cubic feet.

Short Radius Excavators

The short radius Kobelco excavators for sale incorporate the latest Kobelco innovation, the Integrated Noise Dust Reduction system which is specially designed for construction operations in urban areas where the close confines required a low level of noise and engine emissions.  The smallest of the 3 models is the 140SR which weighs 32,040 pounds and generates 94 horsepower at 2,000 rpm.  The working range delivers a maximum dig depth of 19.7 feet with a bucket breakout force of 19,000 pounds per foot and a bucket capacity of 0.88 cubic yards.  At the top end of the range is the 235SR which has significantly more horsepower by developing 153 at 2,000 rpm and can dig to a depth of 21.8 feet using up to 35,950 pounds per foot of bucket breakout force.

Mid Size Excavators

There are only two models of mid size Kobelco excavators for sale the 70SR with an operational weight of 17,300 pounds and the 80CS which weighs in at just under 19,000 pounds.  The 70SR is also a short radius excavator with minimal swing overhang and has total horsepower of 56 at 2,200 rpm.  The working range for this mid size excavator is a maximum dig depth of 15 feet with the total bucket breakout force reaching 11,903 pounds per foot and a total bucket capacity of 0.53 cubic yards.  The other model in this range is the 80CS which has a center swing boon which is designed to improve access for hard to reach foundations and structures.  The working range for the CS model is a maximum dig depth of 15.5 feet, a total bucket breakout force of 11,903 pounds per foot and the same capacity bucket as the 70SR of 0.53 cubic feet.

Blade-runner Excavators

The Blade-runner range of Kobelco Excavators for sale is designed to combine excellent digging capacity with fine finishing and grading capabilities. The smaller 35,900 pound ED 150 has a total horsepower of 94 at 2,000 rpm and comes with an integrated 10.8 foot dozer blade.  The excavators working range provides a maximum digging depth of 19.1 feet with a total bucket breakout force of 19,000 pounds per foot.  The large blade-runner model is the ED 195 which has a 121 horsepower engine at 2,200 rpm powering its 44,800 pounds of weight.  It has a larger 11.4 foot doer blade and can dig to a maximum depth of 21.5 feet with total bucket breakout force of 24,900 pounds per foot.

Small Excavators For Sale

Small, compact or mini excavators are excavators with a total weight that is usually less than 6 tons.  Oftentimes people don’t look at all the different alternatives when they have a particular need in mind as there may be the possibility that a small excavator is not the right alternative and a backhoe loader or a skid-steer loader may be the better choice.  Having said that small excavators are extremely versatile and the smallest ones can fit and operate effectively in extremely small spaces, both indoors and outdoors.

The added advantage of most modern small excavators for sale is that the manufacturers have been focusing more and more on reducing the emission from the engines and also reducing the amount of noise and dust they generate.  This has largely been in response to the increase in their use in urban areas.  In addition, most of the smaller sizes of excavators have rubber tracks which makes them not only significantly quieter but also able to work on most types of indoor surfaces without causing any kind of damage to the flooring.

A big potential cost saving with the small excavators for sale is that the engines are usually quite small with no fancy electronics and therefore easy to keep clean and maintain.  This can be a significant cost saving over the larger models or other equivalent types of construction equipment.  Purchasing a high quality small excavator from a reputable manufacturer such as Kubota and ensuring it is well maintained will largely guarantee a trouble free life for several years of operation.

Training, in general, is also easier on the smaller excavators as one of the most common problems that rookie excavator operators have is depth perspective.  With a small excavator this is not such an issue and the controls on one of the basic models are also usually quite straightforward as there are less hydraulic systems to monitor and less in general going on.  Many large construction firms start new operators on smaller machines to let new users grow into the larger ones gradually.  The skills are essentially the same but mistakes are usually less damaging with a small machine.

Once the decision has been made to purchase a small excavator it is time to consider exactly what it is going to be used for.  Ascertaining the exact type and extent of the work that will need to be performed is crucial in assessing the type of features that will be required. Most manufacturers have a wide range of mini and compact excavators often with a choice of up to 10 different models, each of which is just incrementally different to the model above and below.  Most of the specifications are based around the maximum digging depth, total amount of bucket force that can be applied and the maximum dumping height.

Being able to accurately estimate the types of jobs that are going to be approached both now and in the future will provide a solid guideline for which model of small excavator for sale will be the most suitable.  It’s advisable to get a little extra power than just in case, but given each increase in specification can add more than a thousand dollars getting something that is too overpowered will just end up being a waste of money.

Long Reach Excavators For Sale

Long reach excavators have been around for a while and are a further development of the original excavator which is believed to have been invented in 1835 in Massachusetts by William Otis.  The development of excavators has been ongoing since that time with the biggest design improvement being just after the second world war when hydraulics were first introduced by Poclain in 1951.

Unsurprising the long reach excavator got its name due the fact that the design has a much longer arm than a traditional excavator of the same class which gives a long reach excavator the ability to reach higher and farther than a traditional one.   Long reach excavators have been on sale now for almost forty years and the longest reaching excavator known to have been put into service was developed by a British company named the Priestman Brothers that has since been bought out by R-B International.  Their long reach excavator could reach up to 83 feet and could lift 7,238 pounds of material.

Long reach excavators for sale generally have two main uses, the first is in demolition as when attempting to demolish a building, particularly in a crowded urban setting, it may not be practical to use either explosives or a wrecking ball as the collateral damage to other buildings and even people could be significant.  Instead the better solution is to use a long reach excavator as it is able to start demolishing the building from the top rather than mid way down or from the base reducing the amount of uncontrolled flying debris.

The second key use for long reach excavators is in dealing with ponds, marshes or other dredging style operations as the additional reach of the arm allows the excavator to remain on firm ground and leverage the additional reach to extend over the water and effectively dredge from the shoreline.

One of the key inventions that made the long reach excavator even more effective was the introduction of the variable counterweight.  Most excavator designs have a fixed counterweight which is usually an integral part of the cab and sets the maximum load capacity for that particular excavator.  This design, which was conceived in the 1980s works on a sliding scale allowing the operator to set the amount of counterweight required for a particular operation to prevent the boon from tipping over which is a real possibility given the additional leverage of the extended reach arm.  This feature is also extremely helpful when using the long reach excavator for dredging style operations.

In addition to the variable counterweight the key to the successful operation of any long reach excavator is the weight of the base as this, more than any other factor, sets the performance level and limits of safety for its operation.  Most modern long reach excavators for sale have sophisticated safety monitoring systems that measure the optimum length that the boom can be extended to, given the total weight that it is expected to bear and will either issue a loud warning or completely shut down the operation and retract the arm if this limit is exceeded.

It is also essential for operators of long reach excavators to wear specially designed safety equipment and have a no entry clearance zone in place during operations, as the extended height can result in any debris that escapes from the bucket having a much greater velocity as it hits the ground and a greater potential impact area.  In order to further improve protection for the operator of a long reach excavator, the cab is usually also protected by bulletproof glass, not to prevent someone from shooting the operator, but due to the fact that bulletproof glass is more than five times stronger than regular safety glass.  Most long reach excavators also have additional stabilizers that must be deployed if the boom is going to be extended more than 20 feet as in that case the counterweight may not be able to provide sufficient support.

For standard excavators there is the option to extend their arms and transform them into long reach excavators through the addition of a range of attachments that were pioneered by the Paul Wever Construction Equipment Company and can be fitted to almost all existing heavy industrial excavators.

Long reach excavators for sale that are designed specifically for demolition work have special attachments that are included as part of the standard package such as shearing and cutting units to better control the demolition process.

John Deere Excavators For Sale

Founded in 1837, John Deere was a blacksmith and an inventor who started his own blacksmith store making his invention, a polished steel farming plow that over the following decade became the key tool for farmers in the Mid West.  After almost facing bankruptcy in 1858 the company grew from strength to strength and in 1918 began production of its most famous product, the tractor. By the 1960s John Deere had a separate division purely focused on producing construction equipment and introduced its new slogan “Nothing runs like a Deere”. With sales growing exponentially John Deere quickly became the household name in farming and construction equipment in America.  John Deere is now one of the top 100 most recognized brands in the world.  There are currently three different types of John Deere excavators for sale: the compact excavators; construction class excavators and production class excavators.

Excavators For Sale By Owner

Buying a used excavator can often be the best way to go as there is certainly no shortage of second hand excavators on the market.  In general, most excavators are designed to be highly durable and reliable which, for a second hand purchaser, can be both a blessing and a curse depending on the circumstances.  Due to the reliability of the average excavator, used ones tend to hold their value very well.  This means that the discount for purchasing one will not be as significant as it would be, for example, when purchasing a used car.  On the plus side, it also means that should it only be required for a specific and relatively short period of time, it will retain its value and it should be possible to resell it at close to the original second hand purchase price.

Locating a suitable second excavator will not usually be much of an issue as given the versatility of most designs they are in constant use in almost every location in the world.  As a result there is almost certainly going to be a range of construction equipment traders nearby and it is always worthwhile, when contemplating the purchase of any kind of heavy construction equipment, to obtain local trade journals to look for details of any upcoming auctions or bank liquidation sales.  The construction industry is constantly evolving with new players entering the market and less successful ones going bankrupt or ceasing operations with potential cut price excavators coming on to the market for a quick sale.

There are many key aspects to consider when looking to purchase an excavator for sale by owner and in particular an accurate log of the number of hours it has been in operation will be a good indication, not only of the amount of care it has received, but also to check whether or not it has exceeded or is close to the normal operating life which is 10,000 hours of operation.  Any excavator that has accumulated close to that number of hours is more than likely going to need an expensive overhaul in the not too distant future.  It is also important to review all of the other accompanying paperwork to make sure it is all in order including confirming the ownership history and maintenance log.

When examining a potential excavator purchase it is important not just to consider the features available but also some of the other aspects such as operator comfort.  Many of the newer designs that have a zero tail swing design.  This means that the counter weight used to balance the excavator when in use is included as a part of the construction of the cab and is designed not to extend over the width of the tracks when the arm is rotating.  This can create a very cramped cab design making it uncomfortable for the operator to effectively control the excavator for any extended period of time.

While checking the excavator, pay close attention to the engine and hydraulics to ensure that everything looks clean and that there are no signs of soot in the engine which could indicate it is reaching the end of its useful life and for the hydraulics that there are no leaks as they can be very expensive to fix.  Talk to the owner about any issues not only with how the excavator performs given its age, but also how practical it is to operate under the circumstance that you may need it for.  Most owners will be more than happy to share their construction experience with that particular excavator.

When examining the excavator for wear and tear, don’t forget to check all the attachments that should be with that particular model.  One of the most important features of excavators is their versatility and most modern excavators have a variety of different attachments, many of which come as standard, which would be included in the list price.  If some are missing then the price offered may not represent as much of a discount as the seller is portraying.

Finally pay close attention to the state of the dozer blade as if the excavator has been in heavy use the edge of the dozer blade may have become dulled or damaged.  Most excavators use the dozer blade to assist in performing heavy lifting operations and to act as a stabilizer on certain types of surfaces.  A damaged dozer blade can seriously affect the overall performance of the excavator.

Mini Excavators

There are two types of mini Hitachi excavators for sale, one range has tail swing and consists of 2 different models, the ZX8-2 and the ZX14-3.  These have similar performance and weigh 1,100 kilograms and 1,460 kilograms respectively.   Hitachi’s mini zero tail swing range is much more extensive with 14 different models on offer with weights ranging from 1,100 kilograms to 4,900 kilograms.

The smallest zero swing model is the ZX10U-2 which, like all mini excavator models from Hitachi, has a range of different bucket attachments that can be fitted according to the customers specification.  It has an open cab design with a small integrated dozer blade and has a maximum digging depth of 1.8 meters and a dumping height of 2.2 meters.  At the top end of the zero swing models is the ZX50U-3F with a closed cabin design and a maximum digging depth of 3.5 meters and dumping height of over 4 meters.

Medium Excavators

Hitachi offers there different types of medium excavators: the standard; short tail swing and short rear end swing with the majority of the models, 14 in total, being standards.  The medium Hitachi excavators for sale range in weight from 6,300 kilograms to 39,000 kilograms.  The smallest model is the ZX70 and features an emission control engine.  The working range of the ZX70 is a maximum digging depth of 4.1 meters and dumping height of 5 meters with bucket digging force of 12,400 kilograms per foot.

At the top end of the standard models is the ZX400LCH-3 which has recently been redesigned to enhance its performance in both swing torque and traction force.  It has an impressive working range with a maximum digging depth and dumping height of 7.3 meters and is able to produce 18,000 kilograms per foot of bucket digging force.

KX Series Excavators

The KX range from Kubota is their compact excavator range and has seven different models, all diesel, in the lineup with prices ranging from just over $20,000 to slightly over $100,000.  This range is designed to cover almost every compact excavator option and the smallest Kubota excavator for sale is the K 008-3 with a total weight of around 1 ton and comes with an open cab rather than the more traditional closed cab.

The general specifications for this model is a total horsepower of 10.3 at 2,050 rpm, 2,200 pound per foot of bucket breakout force, maximum digging depth of 68 inches and a dumping height of 80 inches.  It comes complete with a small dozer blade attachment that can provide an additional lift of up to 8 inches and can be used for minor ground clearing work.

At the other end of the scale the most expensive Kubota excavator for sale is the compact KX 080-3W which weighs in at a mighty 8.4 tons and comes with standard features such as: air conditioning; auto downshift; anti-theft; lift overload alarm; an internal refueling hose and adjustable flow control.  Many of these features get added gradually to the range as it progress from the K 008-3 to this, the Rolls Royce of Kubota excavators for sale.

The key performance measurements for the KX 080-3W include: a total horsepower of 70 at 200 rpm from its turbo charged diesel engine; 14,660lbs of bucket breakout force; maximum digging depth of 181 inches and a dumping height of 17.3 feet.   It also has a fairly large dozer blade for its class with a width of 93 inches providing additional lift up to 19.7 inches and can move significant objects out of the way using the excavators over 14,000 pound per foot of traction force.

U Series Excavators

The U series of excavators is also a range of compact escalators but features the latest in zero tail swing design.  This is a development that was first pioneered in the early 1990s and helps prevent rear end damage and provides a smaller turning circle during operations allowing the operator to focus purely on what the boom and bucket are doing.  The U series Kubota excavator for sale has four different models in the range with prices starting at just over $30,000 and going all the way up to almost $75,000. The smallest and cheapest model is the U 17 – HGS which has a total weight of 1.7 tons and the largest is the U 55 weighing in at 5.5 tons.

The U 17 is fairly powerful for its size with a total horsepower of 17 at 2300 RPM from the diesel injection engine.  It provides 3,417 pounds of bucket breakout force, a maximum digging depth of 91 inches and a dumping height of 96 inches.  The small integrated dozer blade can lift the excavator an additional 11 inches when needed and the excavator is able to provide a total of 2,899 pounds per foot of traction force.

At the top of the range is the U 55 which has undergone a recent design overhaul to modernize its key features and improve the overall strength and performance.  It now comes in two variants, the standard U55 and the U55W which has the same performance but come with wide steel tracks as standard as opposed to the rubber tracks on the U55 and models below that.

The U55 has an impressive total horsepower of 46.7 at 2200 rpm from the direct injection diesel engine which can develop up to 14,480 pound per foot of traction force.  The bucket breakout force after the redesign has been increased by 25% to 11,117 pound per foot. But the dumping height of 13 feet and digging depth of 142 inches remain unchanged.
