BTM Machinery provides used heavy equipment to contractors and dealers worldwide. From large construction sites to the scenes of natural disasters, you will find heavy equipment at work, building dams, digging mines, clearing earthquake damage or hauling snow from the latest Northeast blizzard.

“Chances are, much of that heavy equipment is used,” according to BTM Machinery founder and CEO Blake Thornton. “In a disaster situation, they have to purchase quickly and get to work, and they need the most bang for the buck. Other times, it’s a regular job site that has a workload that’s huge but a budget and timeline that’s not.” That, Thornton explains, is when buyers worldwide turn to used heavy machinery, and to suppliers such as BTM Machinery of Charleston, South Carolina.
BTM Machinery: Global Experience, Global Reach
At press time, BTM Machinery had 175 machines in stock, some heading for Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Scotland and several locations in Africa. This far- reaching experience, as well as a contact database of over a half-million names worldwide, allows BTM to keep an eye on many different markets at once, constantly searching for opportunity. Where a market is depressed, heavy equipment bargains are to be found. BTM Machinery will be there to capitalize on that opportunity and pass the savings on to the customer.

BTM Machinery: Expert Refurbishment Services
Around the world, demand for used heavy equipment - as opposed to new - is strong. In some markets it’s simply a matter of dollars and cents. In other developing countries, local contractors don’t have the technology to maintain brand new heavy equipment – particularly the new Tier 4 reduced emissions machines. In either case, contractors and operators know they can trust the used machine from BTM Machinery.
At the BTM Machinery refurbishment facility, technicians rebuild engines, transmissions, hydraulics, undercarriages and electrical systems – all the major components of used heavy equipment. A loader may come into the shop with a bad transmission. Often the precise replacement part, completely refurbished, is sitting on the shelf – one of over 4,500 spare parts in stock. Then, the bad transmission is rebuilt to BTM’s exacting standards and placed into inventory, and the cycle of savings continues for the next customer.
“What’s the difference between a brand new machine listed at $700,000 and a ten-year-old model listing for $200,000?” Thornton asks. “I say that, if the used model came from BTM, you’ll barely notice a difference at all.”
Buying with Confidence
At BTM Machinery, documentation means peace of mind for the used heavy equipment buyer. BTM technicians shoot photos and videos of each stage of the rebuild. BTM Machinery also keeps every receipt for parts and components purchased, each cross-referenced with the serial number of the vehicle. Finally, videos of the rebuilt machine are available to potential buyers, allowing them to see and hear it in action.
The BTM Machinery Team: Invested in Your Success
The BTM Machinery sales staff (http://btm-machinery.com/main/team) takes the time to learn the customer’s business and his project, and then offer real solutions that will help the customer achieve success. The team includes former Case and Komatsu dealers, a former heavy equipment auctioneer and former heavy machinery operators in the construction industry. Together, they bring to every transaction decades of real world knowledge in the buying, selling and operation of used heavy equipment.
One lesson learned from those decades of heavy equipment experience? Unmatched service is key to building a lasting relationship. “We aren’t out to sell you one or two machines,” says Thornton. “We want to get the nod as a trusted service provider that wins your business year after year. We will help educate the customer who doesn’t quite know what he needs. We’ll get creative with financing if that’s what it takes. And we’re going to provide personal follow up, long after the sale.”
