Factory rebuilt

Factory remanufactured equipment from Wadkin is of the very highest standards. Each machine is stripped down to the machine frame and then reassembled with any worn or defective parts replaced, beds reground, all health and safety aspects fully adhered too and repainted inside and out (in any livery you choose). After comprehensive testing the result is virtually indistinguishable from new.
