Benefits of Reconditioning

Benefits of Reconditioning

If you’re thinking about reconditioning your equipment ask yourself a few questions:

What is my budget?
How long do I plan to keep this asset?
How is the machine going to be used?

Reconditioning is typically less expensive than purchasing new. Depending on the equipment, an owner may be able to recondition two assets for the same price as buying a new one. Thus, return on investment is twice that of a single new asset.

Reconditioning can also be considered a green alternative to disposing of a machine. It reduces the amount of material destined for landfills, and reconditioning saves resources when compared to manufacturing a new unit. The best factory reconditioning programs include a rigorous process that tears a machine down to the frame and looks at four major systems: electrical, hydraulic, drive train and structural components. Boom structures also should be completely disassembled and engines removed, evaluated and resealed or rebuilt.
