Why Use Salvage Parts For Your Lawn Tractor?

In this modern age, searching for something is almost already within our reach. Using any search engine such as Google, you can do generic research for parts of your lawn tractor. Compared to going from one place to another or scanning paper ads, the technology nowadays is giving you hundreds or thousands of results on where to buy or order your new lawn tractor parts from dealers, 3rd party sellers as well as aftermarket suppliers, both domestic and foreign. The question you have to answer now is which you should buy—a brand new or used/salvage part?

It is safe to say that there can be three categories to choose from when selecting your lawn tractor’s parts. Below are the different types to choose from:

Brand New Parts

If you have the budget to spend, buying brand new parts for your lawn tractor is not a problem. It’s guaranteed brand new and unused, comes with a warranty, and is branded most of the time. However, it is expensive.

OEM Factory Parts

Original Equipment Manufacturer or OEM is often referred to as the company that makes and sells goods. On the other hand, the components of the products (goods) are from another company. 

On the other hand, depending on the seller, OEM parts can also take slightly longer to receive. They are often at a higher price because the components are originally produced by the same companies who release the branded products. Also, like the brand new, OEM Factory parts are unused.

Salvage Parts

Salvage parts are used OEM parts. But despite that it’s used, it is still worth buying for the reason that the fit and quality will be the same. Compared to the two categories mentioned above, salvage parts are at a lower cost than new aftermarket parts in most cases. And generally, they are good parts because they are usually OEM parts. This means that you are receiving a high-quality part that will fit your needs.

Salvage parts are also high on availability. There are also cases where salvage parts are easier to find than brand new ones, especially for old model parts. You are also helping the environment by recycling products or parts that are still good to use. Furthermore, salvage parts are considered hidden gems because it meets the industry standards.
