Although the motor is a mature industrial product, there is no essential difference between the motor of a second-hand crusher and a brand-new crusher that has been in normal operation for several years, but some manufacturers will use the crusher for a long time in order to increase the output, which may lead to the use of the second-hand crusher. Chance has some influence, so the motor is the point we should pay attention to when buying a used crusher.


The bearing is the most important part of the crusher, so when buying a second-hand crusher, you should check the quality of the second-hand crusher bearing.

Disadvantages of used crushers over new machines

Before starting the second-hand crusher, check whether the screws used to fix the machine are loose, and whether the foundation carrying the machine is too soft. If the screws are found to be loose, they should be fixed in time. If the foundation is too soft, it should be reinforced in time.

Before each use of the equipment, it is necessary to check whether the bearings of the machine and other places that need to be lubricated are well lubricated, and whether the lubricating oil in the oil station is sufficient. The machine has good lubrication effect, which can produce better production and reduce friction between parts.
