The Complete Guide to buying a Wheel Loader in Australia
Wheel loaders are incredible machines and can be used on a vast variety of jobs and tasks. We sell to a large range of industries across Australia including, construction, farming and mining just to name a few.
Purchasing the right Wheel Loader for the job is essentially important and, in this article, we will go over some tips which will help you make the right decision when it comes to purchasing either your first Wheel Loader or upgrading to a newer model.
Is it the right fit?
The first and most of important aspect to choosing the right wheel loader for your business is deciding on which wheel loader fits the need for the type of work you will be doing. A couple of questions you should ask yourself before purchasing are:
What jobs will the Loader be used for and how big will it need to be for the given task(s)?
Another question you must ask yourself is how often the machine will need to be transported between different jobs.
Service and Support
Do your research on brands and dealers before purchasing a new Wheel Loader. Sure, you may be able to find a similar Loader for a cheaper price but some things you need to consider;
- Are they going to be importing machines in the future to service your requirements and backup that machine or are they just in it for a quick buck?
- Can the company you’re considering buying your new machine from supply parts in a timely fashion?
- Do they have the knowledge and staff to assist you with technical info to keep your machine working?
- Is the warranty on that machine realistic? Long warranties sound great on paper but when it comes time to honor it will they back you up?
Finding the right wheel loader and working out which fits your needs best is only the first part of the process. The attachments needed for the wheel loader need to be carefully thought-out.
Workout which loader attachments will be needed in the future and see if the machine you are purchasing is compatible (FINISH THIS PART)
Almost all the time price is the initial thing that people consider when purchasing equipment and anything in general. However, when purchasing a machine that will be making you money you need to think past price alone.
You must look at machinery differently, if you look at a wheel loader in terms of Return on Investment you must realize that when the loader is down and out of action you are losing money. Therefore, we suggest that you choose a company that has a history
