Cheap mini-excavators are available at sales and at auction sites, such as IronPlanet, eBay or MachineryZone. Alternatively, Equipment Trader lists classified advertisements for new and used mini-excavators from dealers throughout the United States, enabling visitors to locate equipment for sale at a local dealer.
To find a cheap mini-excavator for sale on IronPlanet or eBay, a visitor enters Mini-Excavators in the search box on the home page, scrolls through the menu on the left screen, and chooses a price range. He can also refine his search by model, make and year.
MachineryZone works on a similar basis to IronPlanet and eBay by advertising mini-excavators for sale online; however, the company does not run online auctions. It provides links to auctions taking place in different U.S. locations. It also offers links to construction equipment sales events.
