  • No serial number on my machine

    Hi everyone, I need some help with a purchase that I made two days ago, from a posting on Craigslist. When I brought the machine to my shop and started
    really looking at it, the serial number plate that is normally in the front of the machine, it is not. I have contacted the seller and requested for original paperwork, and he told me that he will look and try to find it since the machine is
    five years old he does not think he has it.
    Is there another way to find the serial number for the machine?

    Thx

                Another possibility is look on the Cat engine itself to see if the engine serial is present. It is located on the right side of the engine behind the fuel injection pump. We can cross this number over to the machine serial number.

                        It's a stolen machine.

                        As long as the seller can not provide clean titles of ownership of THIS machine and serial numberthe only conclusion is that it has been stolen from a fellow welder and it disabled him from putting bread on his table. Bring it back to the seller and get a full refund or clear and verifiable paperwork for it.

                          The right thing to is supply that engine serial# to Miller, find out what the true serial# is. Find out if its reported stolen. If so then try and get a refund from the seller, then report him to the police.

                          The problem for you if it indeed is stolen, is that you can go to jail possessing stolen mechandise. I mean who buys a machine without a serial # in the first place??

                            I always get a dated and signed by seller receipt on anything I buy. I hope you did. A check with welder written on it is not very specific. I'm sure it was cash anyway. Less protection without bill of sale. It doesn't hurt to also check his ID

                              I may be proven wrong but my guess is the OP is now fearful he's likely sitting on a hot machine and we probably won't be hearing back from him.
