Just because an ultrasound unit is used does not mean that there is anything wrong with it. The most common reason veterinarians tend to get rid of equipment is if a business gets sold or if a vet may be retiring and closing their practice. Depending on the terms of the sale a buyer may still be able to get some type of a limited warranty when they decide to buy used bovine ultrasound machines.
When trying to decide whether or not to buy a used piece of equipment it is important to do some research about the equipment. When was it purchased? Have the current owners had any problems with the machine or does it require any repair? Perhaps most importantly is why are they selling the unit? Of course cost is always a large factor in any business decision. Used equipment can cost considerably less than brand new equipment and still function in a normal capacity. Some veterinarians like the extras that come along with purchasing new equipment such as customer support and a lengthy warranty.
It never hurts to ask if the seller will let you try out the product before you decide to buy it. This will give potential buyers an idea of what to expect when they use the machine and let them get an idea of whether or not it would be a fit for their business.
