Used equipment for sale?

If you are looking for used equipment we can’t help because we do not trade with machines. However, you can have a look at as a start for your search. We made this page as a support for those who are looking to buy machines. Be sure you won’t get scammed. Read more about the safe way to purchase used equipment.

Mining equipment appraisal

When the contractor of a quarry or an open pit mine changes, a valuation of the assets is often necessary. An experienced team is needed to analyse the fair values correctly and in a negotiable manner. Please contact us for information and references. We have realised larger mining and construction fleet appraisal projects.

Caterpillar® TA-2 level inspections

In our team we have some engineers who have been working with a Caterpillar dealer for many years. On request we can provide machinery inspections at the level of a TA2 including PSR download, oil sampling, filter cut and taking cycle times. We inspected so far machines up to a size of CAT 994, 777 and excavators up to CAT 6030.

Engineering & foundation equipment

In many countries we can support contractors with inspection of used engineering & foundation equipment. Before a used drill rig or a pile driver is purchased or goes on rent it would make sense receiving an independent inspection report.
