About Used Equipment
The decision to purchase a used baler or baling press can either reduce capital outlay, or result in an expensive and frustrating experience. The integrity of the seller and the wisdom of the purchaser will determine the results, BUT the purchaser has the most responsibility to control that outcome. Purchasers of used balers from C&M Baling Systems can be assured a “refurbished” prior owned baler is in fact refurbished!
At C&M Baling Systems
At C&M Baling Systems, we regularly receive phone calls from customers of “used machinery” dealer(s) requesting technical assistance because a used baler purchased will not operate properly. We all-to-often learn the used baler had NOT been fully or properly repaired as promised…and the new owner had no warranty period to insure the so called “refurbished used baler” would operate properly. To correct the deficiency, additional costs are incurred…resulting in an expensive and frustrating experience.
Purchasers of used balers from C&M Baling Systems can be assured a “refurbished” prior owned baler is in fact refurbished by the same C&M employees and staff that build new balers…NOT those that just try to get a baler in condition to sell.ALL C&M REFURBISHED BALERS AND BALING PRESSES ARE SOLD WITH A LIMITED WARRANTY.
We strongly advise those interested in purchasing a used baler to “test-drive” just as you would a used automobile. In this case, the “test drive” would be a 30 to 60 day warranty period. IF THE SELLER WILL NOT PROVIDE A WARRANTY, THEN BEWARE. The purchaser should also allow the seller to commission the baler and produce acceptable bales so the warranty actually will only be needed for the structure and components of the used baler.
