benefits of investing in a rebuilt grader

For anyone interested in acquiring a grader, we outline the benefits of investing in a rebuilt motor grader.

We believe it’s important to consider these before opting to buy new or taking the risk of a used grader purchase.

1. Lower initial investment

Rebuilt motor graders are second-hand machines that have been completely rebuilt in accordance with original equipment manufacturer (OEM) specifications. This means you can buy a motor grader that looks and operates like new but is 40 to 60% cheaper than a new machine on average.

2. More reliability than second-hand

Despite being cheaper, buying a second-hand grader “voetstoots” comes with risks. Rebuilt motor graders are just as reliable as new machines because they have been completely rebuilt with replacement parts, eliminating any lingering issues.

3. Better productivity and efficiency

Our rebuild process restores Caterpillar motor graders to optimal condition and performance. You don’t have to worry about a second-hand machine that won’t be able to handle a heavy workload.

4. Similar lifespan to a new machine

Rebuilding a motor grader not only restores it to top condition, it can even “reset” its lifespan. Because the process is so thorough, rebuilt machines are as close to a new machine as possible, giving them a similar lifespan.

5. Includes a warranty and after-sales support

All our motor grader rebuilds come with a warranty, giving you peace of mind. We offer a machine warranty and a power-train warranty. We provide after-sales support and advice when you’ve taken delivery of your rebuilt grader.

6. Upgraded parts and technology

Caterpillar is a trusted brand and new parts are widely available in southern Africa. Wherever possible, we add newer-generation updates and software to the motor grader to boost its performance.

7. Better resale value than second-hand

When the time comes to sell your motor grader, being able to say that it was completely rebuilt by KH Plant will make it much more appealing to buyers than a second-hand grader where any number of defects could be hidden.
