Should I buy a new or used excavator for sale?
Buying a new or used excavator depends on your budget, intended use, and other factors.

A used excavator may be more affordable but require more maintenance and a shorter lifespan. It’s essential to weigh the pros and cons of each option, assess your needs, and consider the total cost of ownership before deciding whether to buy a new or used excavator.
