Machines are devices that have several parts that work together to ease the performance of a task. They range from simple tools such as pliers to sophisticated ones such as robots and computers.
And their scope of use ranges from domestic settings to industrial settings. As with every other part of the world, Nigeria is home to a wide range of machines, both imported and locally made.
Examples of common machines in Nigeria include power generators, washing machines, sewing machines, pumping machines, tractors, refrigerators, and so on.
These can be powered with varying sources of energy. While some simple machines are dependent on the force or power applied by the user, advanced machines depend on electricity, fuel, solar energy, or other alternative sources.
Here, we’ll be looking at the current prices of different machines in Nigeria.

How to choose the right machines in Nigeria
When buying any type of machine in Nigeria, you need to consider certain factors, so you don’t end up with the wrong choice. Here are some of those factors:
- Price: Of course, the size of your pocket is the most important factor that would determine whether you can buy a machine or not. So, you need to be sure that any machine option you go for, fits your budget.
- Quality: There’s more to buying the right product than just the price. Most of the time, the cheapest option available is not the best because it’s of low quality. If you jump at the cheapest option you find, you’re likely to spend more money in the long term on repairs and replacements.
- Availability of spare parts: Virtually all machines have movable parts. And one sad reality about them is that they will have faults at one point in time or the other. Your best bet is a machine for which you can easily find replacement parts when necessary.
- Brand reputation: Some brands are well known for durable, long lasting products, while others are known for mediocre products. While some little-known brands can deliver top-quality products, there’s no way you can tell this aforehand. So, it’s always safe to go with reputable brands.
- Power source: Due to the erratic power supply in Nigeria, you need to think twice before opting for an electrically powered machine of any type, unless you have steady source of electricity. But if the machine is one you’d be using very often, opt for the type that runs on fuel, if it’s available.
