In recent years, with the advancement of urban construction, agricultural development, and transportation construction, excavators have become one of the irreplaceable tools in engineering construction. However, excavators are expensive, and as equipment depreciation costs are high and unit returns are low, enterprises and individual workers are under great pressure.

As a low-cost, high-efficiency, and environmentally friendly solution to these problems.

Second-hand excavators have received continued attention and demand. Second-hand excavator market trends.At present, the domestic second-hand excavator market has gradually expanded. This is mainly due to the following factors:

  1. The cost of second-hand excavators is low. Compared with new machines, second-hand excavators have depreciation, earlier import and factory dates, etc., so they have certain advantages in cost. For example, the price of a new excavator may be around 700,000-800,000 yuan, while the price of a high-quality second-hand excavator is as low as around 300,000-400,000 yuan, bringing a certain degree of mobility to buyers.
  2. Popularization of green environmental awareness. With the increase of solid waste and the increasing attention of the whole society to environmental protection issues, green environmental protection has become a very important factor when people purchase equipment. Second-hand excavators use remanufacturing technology, also known as “re-creation” technology, which can directly transform discarded old parts into new components, and then use these new components to produce new products. In view of this, analyzing the use of second-hand excavators has certain practical value in saving resources and protecting the environment.
  3. The market is increasingly mature and the industrial chain is sound. As the market matures and the supply chain of dealers and service providers continues to improve, problems such as after-sales service and repair parts for second-hand excavators have been effectively solved, and they have become the first choice of growing users.

Scope of application of second-hand excavators

Because second-hand excavators have the advantages and characteristics of low cost, high efficiency, environmental protection, etc., they are suitable for the following types of operations:

  1. Preliminary cleaning construction. Second-hand excavators are suitable for plowing the ground, digging trenches and some foundation construction operations in the early stages of foundation construction. For sprouting grass, weeds, etc., it can be quickly removed.
  2. Construction of traffic routes. For numerous and complex municipal projects such as building roads and pipelines; construction of roads, bridges, drainage ditches and dams. When using a second-hand excavator for processing, a lot of manpower and material resources can be saved.
  3. Waste cleaning construction. Second-hand excavators can handle waste bins, garbage dump construction, etc. very well. It can remove garbage faster, avoid hazards such as odors, and quickly assist in completing the entire waste project.
  4. Agricultural construction. In agriculture, second-hand excavators are suitable for major construction in large farms, orchards, such as foundation cleaning, plant pruning, trenching assembly, etc., which can greatly speed up agricultural production.
  5. Mine construction. Mining area maintenance, escape hatch excavation, etc. can be completed quickly. At the same time, it is also very convenient for cleaning up debris in the mining area and processing waste materials.

Things to note when using second-hand excavators.

When choosing a second-hand excavator, you need to pay attention to the following aspects:

  1. Mechanical quality inspection. Generally, thick gearbox and cylinder bolts areThe quantity, pump quality, etc. are all key parts that need to be carefully inspected. At the same time, electric components such as cylinder oil lines also need to be inspected.
  2. Engine inspection. Engine cleaning, assembly, power, etc. are all key points that affect the overall quality of second-hand excavators. Therefore, when purchasing a second-hand excavator, you need to check the quality of the engine cleaning and assembly process, the size of the engine power and other information.
  3. Excavator usage records. Each excavator will have a usage record, which reflects the use of the second-hand excavator, such as maintenance records, damage extent, working hours, etc. When purchasing a second-hand excavator, you need to carefully check the relevant usage record information to understand the usage of the second-hand excavator.
  4. Check whether the machine’s running path is level. When purchasing a second-hand excavator, you need to carefully check whether the running path of the machine is level to ensure its stability and work efficiency.


 Generally speaking, second-hand excavators are a cost-saving solution and have a greater impact on construction efficiency, resource conservation, environmental protection, etc. However, when purchasing a second-hand roller, you need to pay great attention to the essential quality and usage of the equipment to better meet user needs and establish long-term talent relationships.
