Some of the benefits of buying used Fastline farm equipment over new machines include a significant decrease in price, the ability to obtain affordable backup equipment and the option to test out different models with a low financial risk. Many farmers also purchase used equipment when buying seasonal machines.
One of the main benefits of buying used Fastline farm equipment is the cost, as used models are often significantly cheaper than new models. Many farmers trade in equipment after a few years to upgrade to newer models, so a used machine may not have been used often. This allows farmers with tight financial restrictions to obtain quality machines at a reasonable price. The low price also lets farmers try out different models and types of equipment without a significant financial risk. However, most used models do not carry any return policies.
Another reason farmers purchase used Fastline equipment is to use the machines as a backup for other equipment. This gives a farmer an extra machine to use if the main machine malfunctions. Farmers who have small batches of seasonal crops also frequently purchase used machines because they feel a small output does not justify the expenses associated with new models.
