Featured Supplier: RWCI Inc. Equipment Sales

Location: Flora, IL

RWCI has been selling quality equipment and parts for over a decade. In 2008, the company moved into a 30,000 square foot facility where they feature a state-of-the-art paint booth and interior sandblasting on 14 acres of land. Jim Bindon took the helm in 2013 and increased the standards of repairs and introduced "Certified" used equipment as a great option for dealers and users.

Certified used is a much better option than the standard "as-is, where-is" used, while not being cost-prohibitive like a full recondition. Here is how RWCI describes it on their website:

Certified Used Process:

Step 1: Wash Bay

A machine that looks clean doesn't necessarily mean it is clean. Several hours in our Wash Bay guarantees a thorough degreasing and cleaning - every inch and weld seam - to remove built-up grease, oils, dirt, concrete, fertilizer, and everything else you can imagine.

190-degree steam removes and sanitizes the surface of even the most corrosive residue. This is one clean machine. Even your mom would be proud.

Step 2: Inspection #1

A clean machine is critical to providing a thorough, hands-on first inspection. If it doesn't pass this inspection, it will never see our sales fleet. 6% of the machines that come for inspection don't make the cut.

Step 3: Hand Prep

RWCI hand-preps each machine, checking the body and undercarriage, and repairing any metal, pitting, rust issues or fiberglass imperfections.

Step 4: Sandblast

Our paint process gets granular in our sandblasting booth. It's an indoor booth - so there's never a delay due to weather. Our eco-friendly full dust collection and air recirculation unit helps us capture and contain the 25 tons of sand per month it requires to go bare-metal deep.

Step 5: Paint & Finish

This isn't some rattle-can paint job, thanks to our high-tech indoor 16' x 16' x 60' cross-draft paint booth. Temperature and humidity controlled, we apply only the highest-quality primer and sealer, then bake-on premium, commercial-grade paint and finish at 160 degrees -- for a shine to last for years.

Step 6: Detailing

The difference is in the details. Every machine is retrofitted with new OEM decals, from cosmetic to safety, returning the machine as close to new as possible.

Step 7: Components Repaired & Replaced

Every major mechanical component is repaired or replaced if needed.

  • Engine

  • Drive-Train

  • Wheel hubs

  • Hydraulics

  • Electrical Systems

  • Hoses

  • Controls

  • Platform

  • Wear Pads

  • Powertrack

  • Sheaves

  • Tires

  • Glass

Step 8: Hands-On Inspection #2

Before it leaves the shop, it gets a second inspection. If any issues are found, they are repaired immediately. The machine is then given full service, including new filters, liquids and oils topped off. It's then put in our yard, photographed, and posted as inventory on our site.

Step 9: Final Inspection

Once a client selects a machine for purchase, it's brought into our shop where a third, and final, inspection is done, repeat testing, repairing or replacing. The equipment is then secured for transport, so you can trust it will arrive "Work-Ready."

I've known Jim and his team for 5 years and know they stand behind their equipment and repair work. They are detail-oriented and men and women true to their words. is proud to feature them as one of our first suppliers!
