Condition and Grade? Let us explain...
Not all surplus pumps and equipment were created equal. So use this handy guide and always know what you’re buying. There are four Condition levels, each with A, B or C grading scores:
Brand new, purchased directly from original manufacturer.
Unused/Never placed in service. Overruns, liquidations etc.
Torn down, cleaned, evaluated. Worn parts replaced, ready to go.
Previously placed in service, shop inspected, guaranteed working.
Perfect, factory-fresh. Still new in box. Most times will include original factory warranty.
Near perfect, factory like new condition. Little to no shelf wear, or cosmetic issues. Flawless performance.
Perfect or near perfect, factory like-new condition. Fully restored to original (or better) factory tolerances and performance.
Excellent condition functionally and cosmetically, very light use and/or noticeable wear.
Excellent condition with light to moderate shelf wear or cosmetic issues. Flawless performance.
Good condition functionally but might have some cosmetic issues and visible wear from light to moderate use.
Good condition with moderate to heavy shelf wear. Might require very minor parts replacement or servicing.
Rough condition but still expected to be usable, although not necessarily to factory standards.
