Puchasing remanufactured equipment

Can I really save money by purchasing remanufactured equipment? 
If your budget won't support purchasing new equipment, remanufactured goods can be an excellent alternative.

Remanufactured, or recertified, equipment often sells at a significant discount, while carrying the same warranty as a brand-new model. It can save money and, depending on your application, should serve your purpose.

Look for equipment that is remanufactured or recertified by the manufacturer, or a factory-authorized vendor. This should provide full warranty coverage. But remember: Like any "used" product, rebuilt equipment may have been significantly used, and it typically will carry only the warranty of the rebuilder.
