This Model Spotlight focuses on the Caterpillar CS56B and breaks down the numbers across the four main EquipmentWatch features: Costs, Rental, Specs, and Values. Each of these features provides a detailed glimpse into the different facets of heavy equipment data.

Each month, EquipmentWatch publishes an article the Top Four Models, which takes one model from each of the four channels (Construction, Lift, Agriculture, & Commercial Trucks) and analyzes their month over month price, age, and volume trends. This Model Spotlight article focuses on one of those four models and breaks down the numbers across the four main features available on the EquipmentWatch website: Costs, Rental, Specs, and Values. Each of these features provides a detailed glimpse into the different facets of heavy equipment data. Whether owning, renting, buying, selling, maintaining, or financing heavy equipment, these articles shed light on the used heavy equipment market. This month it focuses on the subtype of Tractor-Loader-Backhoes, which use their dig depth to determine the size class.

Retail Rental

The Retail Rental graph pictured here displays the average national rental rate, by quarter, over the past two years for the size class in which the Caterpillar CS56B is (8.0 – 11.9 MTons). As you can see on the graph, the area between the two dotted lines is the most representative of the average national rental rate for this size class. As of Q1 of 2017, the average weekly rental rate is $1,779. We saw a large variance from Q3 of 2015 through Q2 of 2016, but over the past three quarters it has remained relatively even. If you are on the EquipmentWatch website, you can use the Location adjustment to adjust by state or the manual adjustment to adjust to a certain percentage of the national average.

Equipment Values & Market Data

The Values & Market Data graph displays the Fair Market Value (FMV) and the Forced Liquidation Value (FLV) for single drum vibratory compactors in the size class of 8.0 – 11.9 MTons that are in “Good” condition on the national level. FMV is the value resale markets and FLV is the value in auction markets. As you can see on the graph, the FMV and FLV have remained basically even over the past six months. The current FMV of this 2016 single drum vibratory compactor is $194,227 and the FLV is $126,248. If you are an EquipmentWatch subscriber, you can adjust the value by changing the condition, location, meter reads, and year.
