With plenty of conflicting advice on the internet regarding the purchase of used or secondhand strapping machines making it difficult to decide whether to use this method of aquiring a strapping machine it's as well to exercise caution and be aware of what brand of strapping machine is being offered, and to also fully understand who is offering it and the words used to describe the machine.
The source - who's offering it:
Ideally you should buy from a well established specialist strapping machine company - a company who has extensive experience with strapping machines and can provide after sales service. So many machines are offered by individual traders that 'dabble' in a bit of this - a bit of that, with very little knowledge of the strapping machines. This type of dealer is very easy to identify - simply look at what else they have to sell - and then assess what degree of back up you are likely to receive.
