Spray Foam Equipment That Holds Its Value Over Time

By Kevin Malone

When you buy a new car, it can lose as much as 20% of its value in the first year and another 15% each year after that. However, some brands hold up better than others. Kelley Blue Book tracks the resale value of vehicles, and a handful of leading manufacturers come out on top year after year. They are the names that you know inspire trust due to a track record of quality.

The same is true for used spray foam equipment for sale. Top brands like Graco and PMC hold their value longer because the equipment they manufacture is built to last, and they have decades of experience to back up that claim. For example, a brand new Graco E-20 Reactor might cost $27,000 to $30,000, depending on accessories. You can often find a used Graco E-20 that still commands a purchase price of $10,000.

Graco Spray Foam Equipment for Sale

One of the reasons Graco spray foam equipment tends to hold its value is the company’s reputation for durable and high-performance spray foam rigs. Graco’s electric foam spray machines can last 10 years or more if properly maintained. Graco hydraulic spray foam machines can last 12 years or longer. So, when it’s time to trade in or resell, they maintain their value well, allowing you to recoup more of your costs to apply toward a new machine.

PMC Spray Foam Equipment for Sale

Spray foam equipment from Polyurethane Machinery Corporation (PMC) stands the test of time as well. American-made equipment from PMC is durable and high-performance even in extreme environments. Contractors working in the hot sun in Arizona, and the cold of Canada and Mongolia, use PMC equipment.

Factors to Consider When Buying Used Spray Foam Equipment for Sale

While used spray foam equipment for sale from Graco or PMC might cost a little more than other brands, you get solid machines that have long lifespans. When shopping for used equipment, though, there are other factors you need to consider.

Age and Hours

Regardless of the brand, older machines with more hours of work will have shorter lifespans than lightly used equipment. You need to check logs and maintenance records when possible.


Beyond holding value, equipment must deliver consistent results, and that may not happen if the machine has not been maintained properly. One of the biggest problems with used equipment is that it may sit idle long enough for materials to harden. The longer the rig has been idle, the more likely the A-side materials can crystalize since ISO is moisture-sensitive. Check the transfer pump hose to the machine. If you bend it and hear cracking, it’s a problem.

You either need to check out any used equipment yourself, get an independent analysis from a spray foam expert you trust, or turn to the pros at Intech Equipment & Supply. We thoroughly examine each piece of equipment, validate it works, and refurbish it when necessary. When you buy from us, you get an honest assessment of your spray foam equipment’s condition, so you know exactly what you’re getting.

Replacement Parts

You need to make sure replacement parts are available. This is another reason why used spray foam equipment for sale from Graco and PMC holds its value. There are brand-name replacement parts for most models. You can check with Intech Equipment & Supply to make sure parts and components are available.


Some used equipment may have a warranty remaining. If you buy refurbished equipment, sellers may also offer warranties.


It can be difficult to figure out what a fair price is, especially if you cannot inspect the equipment yourself. While some brands hold value better than others, there is often no way to compare prices because of the different types of equipment currently for sale and other factors such as age and condition.

That’s another reason you want to work with Intech Equipment & Supply. We have decades of experience with new and used spray foam equipment for sale, so we know the market and whether something is overpriced or a good deal. We offer fair pricing on all used spray foam equipment.
