Always a rebuild never a ‘refurb’

At Daltons Wadkin we don’t like the word ‘refurbished’. This ambiguous term can often mean nothing more than a quick paint and does nothing to improve the machines performance, safe operation or reliability. Always check to see what work has actually been carried out.
