What gets inspected in Bobcat Certified Pre-Owned equipment?

Each part of the machine must pass the inspection, or be repaired, replaced or serviced, before the machine can be approved for the Bobcat Certified Pre-Owned program.

First, a Bobcat-trained technician performs a BobCHECK machine inspection. This includes all parts of the machine, including the frame, the engine, the hydraulics – even the upholstery.

After the BobCHECK inspection, a technician performs a hydraulic pump test on the machine. This ensures the hydraulic pumps are in proper working order.

The technician then takes photos of the machine from all sides, the cab, the hour meter, the engine compartment and the serial number plate. The photos, along with the hydraulic pump test results and service log are submitted to Bobcat Company for review.
 
Bobcat then reviews all the submitted documents as well as the BobCHECK inspection report. The machine will be approved as Bobcat Certified Pre-Owned if the machine meets all condition requirements and the technician followed the correct process.
 
If the equipment is approved, the dealer can brand and market the machine as Bobcat Certified Pre-Owned. Not all machines make the Bobcat Certified Pre-Owned cut. It’s a tough process, but it’s how we make sure we are putting the Bobcat seal of approval on quality machines.
We know how stressful it can be to find trustworthy used Bobcat equipment for sale. Bobcat Certified Pre-Owned equipment is how we can help you get the performance you need and expect from our industry-leading equipment at a lower price.
