When you buy a used generator from Yancey Power Systems, you:

  • • Stretch your budget further. The cost savings associated with buying new allow you to purchase a better machine than your budget would allow if limited to new equipment. As a result, you get a generator that can deliver a number of ongoing benefits, including greater fuel efficiency, fewer maintenance requirements, lower operating costs and better reliability.
  • • Save the initial depreciation associated with buying new. Depending on the brand, new generators depreciate considerably immediately after purchase. However, with a Cat gen set, this depreciation levels offs quickly, provided the equipment is well maintained. This means by buying a used Cat generator, you spend less initially while still getting a machine that will hold its resale value down the line.
  • • Get up and running faster. Get up and running faster. When you need a portable or emergency generator in a pinch, buying used can save precious time. Unlike a new product, which may have to be ordered from the factory and can require a break-in period, with used you get a machine delivered right away, in full running condition.
