    New and used Material handler for Sale

    A material handling machine is only used to move heavy materials such as sand, gravel, stones and waste to other storage areas or vehicles such as trucks, trains or ships. Material handlers are very similar to regular wheel excavators. The main difference lies in the length of the boom. The longer boom allows the machine to bridge a large height difference during loading/unloading. The cabin of a material handling machine can be adjusted in height, so you have a better overview from above during your work. In our stock you will find material handling machines from Caterpillar (M312-M325), Volvo (EW60-EW180) and Liebherr (A914-A924).

    In addition to Sennebogen and Liebherr, Atlas, Fuchs and CAT also manufacture material handlers. They can be equipped with an extendable boom, outriggers a blade at the front or rear. Material handlers can have tires or tracks in combination with support legs. The length of the boom can also vary. Different types of buckets or grippers can be mounted depending on the work. An electromagnet can also be used to move metal easily.

    What are material handlers used for?

    Material handlers are obviously most suitable for material handling activities. An example of this is loading/unloading raw materials onto an inland vessel. Material handlers are also widely used by recycling companies. Thanks to their long boom, the bucket can reach much further than a regular excavator. The adjustable cab also gives the operator considerably better visibility.

    Types of chassis

    Material handlers can have different types of undercarriages. Each type of undercarriage is better suited for certain work environments. The most important types of undercarriages are: street tires, tracks or a fixed chassis. In the recycling industry (e.g. a waste collection facility) a machine must work in different places. Tires allow the machine to move around quickly. Tracks on the other hand are suitable for places where mobility is less important. Material handlers are also widely used in ports or on ships. Here the machine does not need to move, which is why a fixed chassis is ideal as it is the cheapest.

    How much does a (used) material handler cost?

    The price of a material handler varies greatly due to the large variation in motorization and types. An old machine is also obviously cheaper than a brand-new unit. BAS World always has a large selection of material handlers of different brands, types and age in stock. You can buy a used material handler from BAS starting at €65,000. The price of a new unit is a lot higher, with an average price tag of around €250,000.
