“Used” plans pick up where the “New” left off. A Used plan can be applied to any piece of equipment that is no longer in that three year window we talked about in our last post, but still less then 7 years old. If you missed the three year window then you are in luck, as this plan is perfect for you. Let’s take a look at why a used plan may or may not be the plan for you.


Options –

You have choices! With a “Used” warranty you can choose between Powertrain or Powertrain + Hydraulics. Unfortunately, Platform coverage is no longer an option. You determine the number of hours that you want the machine covered for, usually 250, 500, 750  or 1,000 hours, as well as the number of years 1, 2, and in some cases 3 additional years.  Lastly, you can also choose your deductible: $250 or $500.

Cost –

Buying a Used warranty often times does cost more then a New warranty, so if your equipment meets the qualifications needed to sign up for new we will always steer you in that direction. If you don’t meet the standards for a New plan, know that we are working for you! We always look at the overall health of the equipment and ask you lots of questions to create the best plan for your needs.


Choices –

Don’t be fooled. Just because there are not as many options as you have with a New warranty, doesn’t make the options you have any less valuable. You still have a lot to choose from, so it can even be overwhelming to consider all of the possibilities. We are happy to walk through the process with you if you would like help!

Enroll older equipment –

A New plan is limited on when it can be enrolled in that program. With a Used warranty, you can enroll equipment up to 10 years-old and up to 5,000 hours, and you can do it at any point during those 10 years.


Eliminate the risk when buying used –

This is a great option if you buy used equipment from dealers, auctions, or even from your neighbor. By adding a service plan, you protect yourself from buying a “lemon.” We take the risk out of buying used! If you are buying at a distance and can’t make the trip, consider having one of our experienced service technicians  inspect the equipment for you so you can buy with peace of mind.
