How to Take Advantage of Used & Closeout Attachments
Posted by Maranda Wilson on 30th Jul 2016
Did you know that Skid Steer Solutions has an inventory of used attachments and close out equipment? The products in this category of our site consist mainly of products used for demo only (speaking of demos, have you seen our Youtube channel?). What we classify as used has —at most— an hour of use on them. So in addition to being a company with a reputation, our used products are guaranteed to arrive to you as if they are nearly new.
Quick! Here’s what we are currently featuring in our used and closeout category:
Eterra Log Splitter Inverted - The Reaper
Designed to split logs from the convenience of the operator seat. The mounting of this splitter is the key selling point because it, unlike other log splitters, is designed with visibility in mind. The splitter is carried upright — hence the “inverted” in its name. When in motion, the splitter is carried upright and rolls forward to force your quick attach plate to move out of your line of sight.

Happen to find what you are looking for elsewhere? Don’t let the word “used” keep you from considering options that can potentially save you a lot of money. Here’s what we suggest you consider before buying used from other retailers:
1. The general appearance
How is the condition overall? Are there any chips, cracks, bends, or missing parts? After judging the physical appearance, it is next important to inspect what the eyes may not catch. Consider requesting an inspection report or a note on the condition of the parts from the retailer.
Buckets: Check the leading edge of the bucket for signs of wear. Also check the side panels and the base and note the general thickness of the side panels. Thinning panels increase the likelihood of holes and leaks, which would render your bucket useless for more detailed jobs.
2. Look at the manufacture
If smaller parts need to be replaced, do you know where you can access such replacements? Especially with small wear parts (such as cylinder pins and rods), it is important that the correct parts can be purchased. Otherwise, your entire attachment might cost you more than it is worth.
3. Check for compatibility
Will the hydraulic pressure and hydraulic flow rate of the attachment work with your machine? How about with the size and capacity of your skid loader? It is easy for technical information to be forgotten over time, and so it is imperative to verify what your skid steer and/or attachment can handle.
