Our Used Equipment Team

When you’re looking to buy a tractor, it’s easy to get wrapped up in the shiny new machines, free of dents and scrapes with all the latest technology. We completely understand — new tractors are exciting! Actually, all tractors are exciting, and sometimes the brand new machines just aren’t the best fit. Every tractor has its place and purpose, whether it’s brand new, 5 years old or 20 years old. We’d like to highlight some of the benefits of purchasing used equipment from us here at C & B Operations below.
Spend Less Money,
Lose Less value
The first major benefit you probably think of when you think about buying used is the ticket price. If you’ve ever owned or shopped for a tractor before, chances are you’re well aware of the fact that tractors aren’t exactly minor purchases. Buying a tractor is a big investment, but it doesn’t have to break the bank. You can cut that initial cost down quite a bit when you make the decision to purchase a pre-owned machine. That means you’ll have a better chance of getting a lot of your money back if you ever decide to re-sell it. Beyond the initial price of the equipment, you can save on accessories and implements to boot. Keep in mind, though, that used equipment isn’t always the cheapest option — leasing is available on new equipment as well as used.
Same John Deere Quality
While John Deere makes a variety of incredible new equipment, opening your options up to used equipment gives you an abundance of choices you wouldn’t otherwise have. Sometimes an older machine or a discontinued model might make the most sense for your applications. For some, it can be hard to break away from the type of machine you started out on years ago. For others, you might not want to be limited to just one specific brand of equipment. When you buy used equipment, you’re not locked into any of those things. You have the flexibility to choose whatever works the best for you at the time.
Speaking of flexibility, that’s another great reason to consider used equipment. Let’s say you need to get some equipment for your business or home project. If it’s a temporary job or a short-term project, you might not necessarily need that same equipment for years and years to come. If that’s the case, you might be hoping to find a tractor that you can buy quickly and sell quickly too, if that’s what it comes to. If the equipment you’re buying isn’t a long-term investment for you, it might not make sense to put the same amount of money into it that you would for a “lifetime” tractor. If you buy used, you know you won’t have to spend as much money up front and you aren’t likely to lose a lot of money when you sell it back. As long as you take good care of it, of course!
Tested and Reliable
Whether you’re buying a brand new piece of equipment or used equipment, it’s always smart to give it a good once-over and keep your eyes peeled for any wear and tear. Of course, on used equipment, some of that is to be expected. If the equipment looks to be in overall good condition without any major leaks or obvious functional issues, though, you should feel a certain level of confidence about making the purchase. That’s because “used” equipment is not synonymous with “overused and worn out”. In fact, what it does imply is that the equipment you’re looking at has already been put to the test by the previous owner (or owners), and most likely had any major kinks addressed already. When you shop with us here at C & B Operations, you can rest assured that the equipment you purchase has already been fully inspected and assessed. Every piece of used equipment in our inventory is tested and proven reliable — no exceptions. If you’re looking for used equipment you can trust to get the job done every time, C & B is the place to find it.
