Used CNC Router Machine: Things to Consider Before You Buy

The price of CNC routers ranges from under $4,000 for hobby models to over $100,000 for industrial models. To save money, companies often buy industrial routers used, but not without worry. CNC machines have sensitive parts that require regular maintenance and careful use. In a router, these parts are the motors that guide the cutter heads, and the computer that controls the motors. In a second hand machine, these parts could have problems that do not surface until the new owner uses the machine for weeks. But it is also possible to find a used CNC router machine that works like new.

If you need a quality used CNC router, the considerations below can aid you in your search.

When is a router too used?

If you need a router for occasional, lightweight work, buying a heavily used router could make sense. But if you need one for frequent work that is critical to product quality, a lightly used router is best. Due to its long lifespan, an industrial router that has less than 8 years of use could be considered to have light use.

Should you search for a router that has a warranty?

Buying a router that is under warranty can offer peace of mind, at least for a while. In the long run, the greatest protection against premature breakdown is proper maintenance. Therefore, focus on finding routers that have a spotless maintenance record, and then find one that is under warranty.

Should you search for a router on your own?

Because industrial machinery is not an everyday purchase, finding a large selection of industrial used woodworking machinery on your own can be difficult. A better approach is to find a seller of used woodworking machines that specializes in machine location. Such a seller should be able to search the globe for the machine you need.

How should you evaluate the reputation of a seller?

Because a used CNC router machine is still a large purchase, you should carefully evaluate a seller before making a purchase. The best ways to assess the reputation of a seller are (a) contacting the Better Business Bureau (BBB), and (b) asking for customer references.

When checking a seller’s record at the BBB, look for two things: a high letter rating, and a history of resolving customer complaints, if any were made. Asking for references to customers who purchased a router at least six months ago is best, as talking to recent customers may not provide a good indication of the quality of a seller’s machinery.
