Where to Find Rebuilt Machinery for Sale in South Africa

Jun 28, 2022

As prices across the board steadily increase, everyone is starting to wonder if buying new machinery is the best way to go. The main concern that most buyers struggle with when weighing up the option of rebuilt vs new machinery is whether or not a rebuilt machine will be as reliable. Thus, they wonder if they will be spending more money in the long run due to replacing a rebuilt machine faster than a new one. 

In this article, we will lay these concerns to rest and explore the benefits of a rebuilt machine, what the process of rebuilding consists of and where to find rebuilt machinery in South Africa. 

Rebuilt vs Used Machines

Even though it might not seem like it, there is a difference between a rebuilt and a used machine. A used machine is a machine that has been used and is being sold as-is after use. A rebuilt machine refers to the process of taking a used machine and deconstructing it, after which it is inspected and worn or damaged parts are replaced. It is then reconstructed and sold. Thus, you are receiving a machine that is as good as new. 

The Benefits of a Rebuilt Machine

There are multiple benefits to purchasing a rebuilt machine that makes it much more attractive than a brand new model. Some of these benefits include: 

  • Cost-Effective: It is much cheaper to purchase a rebuilt machine than a brand new one. Thus, it is easier to expand your business in the long run.
  • Environmentally Friendly: As the manufacturing process causes a lot of environmental waste and pollution, it is much more eco-friendly to opt for a rebuilt machine. 
  • Lifespan: A rebuilt machine has almost the same lifespan as a new machine if it is rebuilt correctly. This means that you will not have to replace it sooner than a new machine, which ensures that you save money.
  • After-Sale Support: If you choose the correct provider, you will receive after-sale back-up and support that will ensure your rebuilt machine is kept in good condition and stands the test of time.

The Rebuilding Process

When rebuilding a machine there is a certain process that must be followed to ensure that it is done correctly and that the machine is in good condition. This process starts with an assessment of the machine, after which it is dismantled. Once dismantled each and every component is thoroughly tested from the electrical system to the powertrain. Once the components that need replacing are identified, the remanufacturing process begins. Wiring and pipe routing is then performed, after which the entire machine is reassembled. After assembly, another round of testing is performed and the setting can be implemented. It is then time to repaint the machine and apply the decals. Finally, the machine is tested for the last time and ready to be sold to its new owner.
