Is My Final Drive Core Worth Anything?

There Is Value In Your Broken Parts!

If you have a final drive core laying around, you may be wondering if it's worth something. The not so simple answer is - maybe. The value of the core mainly depends on demand. If you have a core rebuilders want, you obviously would like to know what you can get for it and who might want to buy it from you.

Before you spend the time trying to sell your final drive core, you need to determine whether it's worth your time to peddle the metal.

Some machines are still very much in circulation while others are virtually extinct. If your machine is one that's still going strong, that could be in your favor. However, if you own a machine for which quality replacement final drives are available, rebuilders likely won't buy your core because they can't compete with the competitive price of replacement drives.

The challenge for rebuilders is the risk involved in buying the cores matched with shipping costs. The cost of freight becomes a loss if the core can't be rebuilt.

"You are going to be economically repair about 20 percent of the cores," says Todd Resser, owner of Southwest Equipment Parts.

"We must first qualify whether the unit is repairable and worth sending in," Resser says.

The parts rebuilders most want to know about is the condition of the travel motor housing. It musts be able to be reused. There cannot be any broken housing or damaged ports or threads. For the planetary style gearbox, the spindle housing must be reusable. For the RV style, the spindle, flange hold and hub must be able to be reused.

"In general, the guts (internal parts) can be trashed, but the housings need to be good," Resser added.

Final drive replacement parts including gears and seals can be expensive so for that reason alone it's often hard for rebuilders to justify the risk in buying cores, especially when so many replacement drives are available.

The following is a list of machines for which Southwestern Equipment Parts indicates the final drive cores are in demand. Included is a part number and the OEM list price. Following the list price is an estimate only of what you may be able to sell the final drive core from that corresponding machine. The actual value of the core would actually be determined by many factors beyond the consideration of this article.
