Auction Watch: Excavators and Industrial Equipment

I would like to continue with our series of vehicles you can find at Japanese auto auctions. But I going to take a small detour from the regular cars and get into something bigger (literally). Excavators and other industrial equipment are often sold in Japanese auctions for a number of reasons. Just like private car owners, industrial vehicle owners need/want to change their vehicles according to demands the business has at the time.

Since it is no easy thing to sell such equipment alone, you will find several auto auctions selling industrial equipment on the side. In addition to the general vehicle auctions, there are also specialized auctions that focus just on industrial and construction equipment. Often these auctions use the parade auction format (cars are “paraded” in front of buyers and auctioned individually) due to the size of the vehicles and the money involved.

The quality of these vehicles can vary, but you will see many that are in great condition (for their use). Those who are serious about buying used large equipment should really consider buying from Japan. Many importers (from Canada to East African nations to South-East Asian to South American countries) purchase from Japanese auctions because even after shipping costs and other fees involved, you will find better quality for a cheaper compared to purchasing from a local market.

To give an example, here is a 2001 Kobelco excavator currently available for export on JCarBuys Stock:

YV02 - 2001 Kobelco SK115SR-1E Hydraulic Excavator - Green YV02 - 2001 Kobelco SK115SR-1E Hydraulic Excavator - Green YV02 - 2001 Kobelco SK115SR-1E Hydraulic Excavator - Green
