Heavy equipment traders, or dealers, buy and sell new and used equipment for industries such as mining, construction, forestry, agriculture and landscaping. Some types of heavy equipment include tractors, cranes, excavators, forklifts and cargo trailers.
Heavy equipment dealers may advertise through classifieds websites such as MachineryTrader.com or EquipmentTraderOnline.com. These sites allow buyers to look up equipment by location, type and manufacturer. They also have listings for parts, attachments and equipment rentals. Machinery Trader provides information on heavy equipment auctions, stolen equipment and how to avoid scams. Equipment Trader offers articles about how to buy equipment as well as tools to help with financing.
