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.
