Resale Value Risk Map from Equippo AG

How do recent increases in EU and U.S. diesel fuel quality standards affect heavy machinery?

New machines must use very high quality diesel, but many places in the world have much lower quality fuels. This means that many countries will not be able to operate Tier 4 Final / Stage IV equipment.

Equipment expert Michael Rohmeder of says, “for both equipment resellers and buyers, sourcing high-quality used machines is very important. Having access to “young used” equipment allows job sites in developing countries to take advantage of improvements in up-time, technology and fuel efficiency.”

The infographic analyzes UNEP data and inside info from a leading European engine manufacturer to project where young used, Tier 4 Final / Stage IV machines will function by 2019.
