Used Railroad Equipment


Buying used rail equipment is one of the best — and most fiscally responsible — choices you can make when it’s time to add to your maintenance of way fleet.

At Vancer, we have a variety of used railroad equipment for sale. We have equipment to meet all of your MOW needs, including backhoes, hi-rail excavators, tie cranes, track loaders, wheel loaders, skid steers, and dozers, as well as power units and attachments. Each used machine sold by Vancer goes through a comprehensive inspection and must pass strict quality standards before it’s available for sale so that you can have total confidence in your investment. In addition, we offer multiple types of financing and payment plan to fit your needs.

Let us provide the used railroad equipment you need to ensure train travel remains safe, reliable, and cost-effective for years — and decades — to come. See our selection of used MOW, hi-rail, and railroad equipment below.





Why Buy Used Railroad Equipment?

As a MOW professional, you know that maintaining the track itself is essential to maintaining the performance and efficiency of railroad networks. This big responsibility comes with an equally big price tag when adding specialized machinery to your equipment fleet.

Investing in new hi-rail equipment is often the first choice. However, purchasing used typically offers significant cost savings while still performing at a high level to help keep up with the demands of modern railroad companies.

When properly maintained and cared for, used railroad equipment can function as well as — or even better — than the latest models.

Benefits of Buying Used

The cost savings from investing in used railroad equipment don’t stop with the initial sale. Instead, you can expect to see reduced expenses month over month with lower insurance premiums and fewer depreciation costs. You may even save so much that you can invest in two used machines for the same, or less, than one brand-new machine.

Besides the financial benefits, buying used also provides:

  • More selection. No waiting weeks or months for a new hi-rail excavator or backhoe. Vancer offers a wide variety of machines ready for purchase now. If we don’t have it, we’ll work with our partners across the U.S. to find one.
  • Access to the latest technology. Much of the used MOW equipment for sale via Vancer is late model, meaning it may have the same technology as brand new machines.
  • Peace of mind. All used railroad equipment is thoroughly inspected and comes with a multi-point inspection performed by our experienced technicians. We also provide nationwide service and parts support, along with options for preventative maintenance and fleet management plans to ensure you won’t have to deal with a lot of downtime when equipment does need repair.
