We’ve been in business for 80 years and we have a vast network of connections that help us find the exact piece of equipment you need to get the job done.

  • Machines From skid steers to excavators, track-type tractors to wheel loaders and more, we offer quality used heavy equipment for sale from leading manufacturers like Caterpillar, John Deere, Bobcat, New Holland, and Volvo. Good for small businesses or commercial industries looking to expand their fleet, the special steering of skid steers utilizes fewer parts than other machines, making them more durable. This means that used skid steers can almost always provide you with the same quality services as a new skid steer, helping you save money at a time when every penny counts.
  • Used Excavators An excavating machine can save you time and money because their components are meant to withstand significant hourly usage before needing replacement. Digging, moving stones or trees, or removing stumps can be done far more efficiently and inexpensively with a used excavator, making it easier to recoup your initial investment.
  • Used Wheel Loaders Also known as front-end loaders or bucket loaders, this is one of the most widely used machines in construction today. Caterpillar is known worldwide as the top manufacturer of wheel loaders making your used purchase a great opportunity for you to have the same performance and durability you would expect from new wheel loader.
