IRONcheck: Never Buy a Stolen Machine

Staff | September 28, 2010


NER's IRONcheck service checks the ownership associated with a machine's product identification number (PIN)

Check a used machine's product identification number (PIN) to find out if it is stolen before you buy it. For $39.95 (or less, with volume discounts), you can use an e-mail service from the National Equipment Register (NER) to compare a machine's PIN to the nation's most comprehensive database of stolen construction equipment (85,000 machines), plus an ownership database containing 13 million registered machines. Access this service, plus keep up with equipment-theft news on's new security site.
