Buying a Used CNC Router: Frequently Asked Questions

Shopping for an industrial grade Computer Numerical Control (CNC) router can result in sticker shock. Industrial grade CNC routers could be difficult for the average woodworker to afford. That is why many people choose to buy the machine secondhand. Before buying a used CNC router, many people ask the following questions to gain more information about pre-owned woodworking equipment for sale.

How is pre-owned machinery priced?

It is priced based on several factors, particularly its age, size, technology, remaining lifespan, and wear. How its previous owner operated a machine (e.g. strenuously or lightly) could also be a factor in its price.

Is it best to purchase a product that is still under warranty?

It depends on how the product will be used. If a pre-owned machine will be used in place of a new machine for a short time, then buying a product that is still under warranty is sensible. However, if a pre-owned machine will be used on a permanent basis, it makes more sense to protect the investment by buying a reconditioned product versus buying a product whose warranty will expire in the short term.

What is the average discount for pre-owned CNC equipment?

The discount for a used CNC router can depend on several factors, particularly the ones mentioned above. With that said, most routers receive a discount of at least twenty-five percent off the original price.

Does it matter who previously owned the equipment?

When woodworkers shop for pre-owned woodworking equipment for sale, one of the first conditions that should be determined is the identity of the previous owner. As mentioned above, the owner of a machine can affect its longevity by using it strenuously (e.g. around the clock in a factory) or lightly (e.g. a few hours a day in a trade school classroom). A lightly used product is always preferable to one that has been strenuously used.

When is CNC machinery too old to be considered a good purchase?

It depends on the needs of the buyer. If the machine will be used lightly, then buying a product that is several years old may be more sensible than buying one that is almost new. Similarly, if the product is used for long, daily production runs, buying it in relatively new condition is the best move.

Is buying CNC machinery at an auction a good idea?

Although good machinery can be found at auctions, buying a machine from an auction presents some disadvantages. For example, it might be impossible to put the machine through a short test run, and it could be difficult to thoroughly assess the machine before the auction commences. Financially, buying a pre-owned machine from a seller that reconditions machinery is a safer option than buying it at an auction.
