USED CLICKER PRESSES

Over 80% of the used machines in the market are no longer manufactured which means that parts are no longer available. We realize that there may be some good used machines available but if you can't get parts, it's just a matter of time before an expensive investment is worthless.


Quite frankly, this is why there are so many tired/worn out machines on the market. Large manufacturers are dumping their older presses before it's too late and getting into machines with warranty and parts availability. They don't want to be the ones holding the bag when an old press finally breaks.


If you've been looking at used machines, insist on getting contact information for the actual manufacturer and call them to verify that they are still in business and willing to send service informatin and parts in the event of a break down. Then I would ask the seller to give you a written one year warranty for your protection.



Be Informed and Be Careful

We stopped accepting trade ins on our new machines because 70% of the used machines in the market are no longer
manufactured which means that parts are no longer available. After getting stuck with our share
of used presses we made the decision that it’s not worth the risk any more.

- Parts aren’t available anymore

We realize that there may be some good used machines out there but if you can’t get parts, it’s just a matter of time before an expensive purchase is worthless.

- Do your home work

If you’re considering buying a used press, you should do your homework and make sure that parts are available. Don’t take anyone’s word for it. Find the supplier of the parts and order something.

- Factories are dumping their old machines

Quite frankly, this is why there are so many tired worn out machines on the market. Large manufacturers are dumping their older presses before it’s too late and getting into machines with warranty and parts availability. They don’t want to be the ones holding the bag when a tired press finally breaks.

- No more Technicians

The truth is that for the most part there is no such thing as a press technician for these older presses. If you find someone at all that is willing to look at your machine, you’re going to pay 100 to 200 dollars an hour for them to try to diagnose a machine they know nothing about. This is what’s known as an expensive blank check.

- Lost production & customers

It’s not only expensive, when you consider the loss of production and in some cases the lost customers it’s hard to see why some are willing to take the risk. Nevertheless, we are asked every week if we can work on presses that are no longer supported.
