Where to Buy Used Graco Spray Foam Rigs

By Kevin Malone

A well-maintained electric spray foam machine can last seven to 10 years. Hydraulic spray foam machines can function for 10 to 12 years. So, a well maintained, used spray foam rig can have years of life left.

There are pros and cons to buying a used spray foam rig, even a top-quality one like a used Graco spray foam rig. In this article, we walk you through the positives and negatives and point you to the best place to buy used equipment.

Pros and Cons of Buying Used Spray Foam Equipment

On the plus side, a used spray foam rig will be less expensive than a new one, which is a viable option for companies that are starting out or operating on a tight budget. Or, if you are adding to your fleet or replacing a worn-out unit, you may want a compatible unit that works with your existing equipment.

If you find the right unit, you can generally get it quickly. With some new spray foam rigs, you may have a bit of a wait, especially if you are customizing your rig.

If you buy from a reputable vendor, you can often find a used spray foam rig that has years of life left. The best suppliers will provide a thorough inspection, product support, and even extended warranty coverage if you purchase a certified used rig. If your rig includes a vehicle, you will also save on depreciation as vehicles depreciate more rapidly in the first few years of ownership.

However, there are some downsides you need to be aware of. Used equipment may not have been maintained well or may have hidden problems that are not immediately visible. You do not want to find this out in the middle of a job. Downtime costs money.

When buying used equipment, you have to be aware of which replacement parts are available. With older models, you may have trouble getting parts after the model has been discontinued. One of the reasons why contractors like used Graco spray foam insulation rigs is that Graco has been in business for more than 100 years and replacement parts are generally available for most models.

Where to Buy a Used Graco Spray Foam Rig

Where you buy a used spray foam rig makes a big difference. You can look on eBay or another online marketplace, but you never know quite what you’re getting or whether the seller is being honest with you. Even if you find a quality used rig, there is no post-sales support. So, if you run into a problem, you are on your own.
