Reconditioning Process

To see videos of collators that we have reconditioned in the past, please click the following:




Many wonder what certain machinery dealers do to a used machine prior to selling it. Machines can be sold in the following conditions: "As Is", "Good Running", "Reconditioned", and "Rebuilt."

As Is
Is the way you buy a machine at an auction. If you ask a machinery dealer to guarantee that the machine cycles, he generally will. We certainly will.

Good Running 
This means that the machine runs, it may have worn parts but the machine will operate as it should.

Reconditioned
Generally describes a machine that has been checked, worn parts replaced, cleaned, and if necessary, painted. This machine should run well and we warranty the machine.

Rebuilt
Is a little trickier. To some it may mean that every nut, bolt, bushing, and bearing is replaced with new ones. To others it may mean that all moving parts are replaced. Either way the machine should be stripped to its frame, assessed and literally re-built. This is how SPIEL ASSOCIATES rebuilds most of our used collators. We strip the machine down; replace all moving parts and tubing. We clean and paint the machine. Below please find a series of pictures representing a rebuild of a Sterling Collator.
