By Leila Steed19 May 2022

Bobcat has launched a certified used equipment programme in Europe and said the new service was being offered at a time when “the supply of construction machines is being rapidly outpaced by demand”.

‘Bobcat Certified’ will give customers “a dependable route to procure a quality used machine”, said the manufacturer, with machines eligible for certification having to meet certain criteria.

The scheme - operated through authorised Bobcat dealers - will be available first in the UK, Ireland, France and Germany, with Italy, Spain and Sweden to be added later this year.

Once accepted for the scheme, machines will be put through an inspection process, which includes condition, safety and operational checks carried out by Bobcat’s dealers.

Only machines that pass inspection are approved as Certified, at which point they are then updated to the manufacturer’s latest quality and safety standards.

Bobcat said, “Each certified machine has proven reliability with Bobcat’s rigorous two-step inspection process, the latest service schedule using Bobcat genuine parts, oil checks, all necessary software upgrades and a 12-month/1000-hour manufacturer’s warranty as standard.”
