There are many benefits to purchasing a used generator. Many companies routinely purchase used generators because it is often the most cost effective way to buy high quality generators. Used equipment generally becomes available for a number of reasons, such as upgrades or changes in product. Many times this equipment has low hours and is in excellent condition. There are a number of factors that must be taken into consideration before purchasing a used generator. When shopping for a reliable used generator, some of the first things you should check are the hours, age and history of the generator. A generator that was used as a backup source or standby is probably in better shape than one that was used as a primary source. However, there are times when usage information is not available. In this case, the reputation of the seller becomes extremely important. It is important to buy from a reputable dealer that has had a successful history in the industry and will stand behind the equipment they sell. Some questions you should ask yourself - Does the seller have testing equipment on site? Do they have trained in-house technicians? What is their history of maintaining and repairing diesel engines? Manufacturers like Caterpillar, Cummins and Detroit Diesel have a long history of making high quality equipment that last for years when it is properly maintained.
Diesel generators are complex pieces of machinery that need to be properly maintained and tested by qualified technicians. You want a used generator to be there when you need it the most.
