Used Equipment at Bench-Mark
All of our Bench-Mark used equipment is rigorously tested to ensure that it is still working optimally. We test every piece of equipment to ensure that still meets the expected specifications of when it is new. All used recievers are updated to the latest GNSS firmware, and are range tested to ensure that the radios are still producing the expected range. We test the radios over a 2 mile no line of sight baseline to ensure that they work as expected.
For all used total stations, we ensure that the instrument is shooting accurate values on both faces of the instruments. We also test the batteries to ensure that they hold their charge, and if they do not meet our standards, new batteries are sourced to replace the existing set. Finally, we get our tech to test the accuracy, and adjust the instrument to ensure it meets specifications.
The final step we take before selling any used equipment is a thorough cleaning, and replacement of any broken or damaged parts. Just because equipment is used does not mean it should be bruised and battered. With all of our used equipment we replace any broken parts including enclosures, antennas, buttons and more. We want your used equipment to seem like it is new and you are the first owner.
