selling a Cat motor grader

If you’re thinking of selling a Cat motor grader, now is the perfect time.

In South Africa and worldwide, there’s a boom in the market for used construction equipment. Demand is outpacing supply.

Below we cover…

Booming demand for used construction equipment

In 2022, the annual growth in demand for new and used heavy construction equipment in South Africa is pegged at 9%, the fastest in Africa.

The increased expansion of infrastructure, exploitation of natural resources, and residential and commercial construction projects are fuelling demand for excavators, rammers, backhoes, bulldozers and motor graders.

Basic construction equipment accounts for more than 60% of the construction and equipment market in Africa. South Africa leads the pack in terms of market size.

Rising demand for quality machinery and equipment has led to an appreciable increase in sales of used and refurbished machines.

Later-model Caterpillar graders and rough-terrain cranes are particularly sought after.

Record prices paid for used heavy machinery by key brands  

The widening gap between supply and demand has led to a significant spike in pricing. OEMs, auctioneers and dealers are registering as much as a 30% hike in profits.

Premium prices are being paid for used machines and equipment manufactured by leading brands, including Caterpillar, Komatsu, Liebherr and Hitachi.

The construction sector in Africa is expected to experience rapid growth over the next five to six years.

Demand for used and refurbished mining, construction and earth-moving equipment will likely continue apace. Sellers can anticipate record high prices, with no sign of a downtrend.
