You may also want to submit your product feed to Octopart, a search engine for electronic parts and products. That way, when people search for specific products you will be in the result set.

The best platform to sell heavy equipment on is the platform with the most heavy equipment buyers in your area, not necessarily a new website nobody knows of...
You really want to build a database of content (Images, descriptions, prices, costs) that you can publish in many places:
Facebook marketplace/ Craigslist/Equipment Trader/etc
I could see wanting a website of your own as well, and a website could be that main database of content....
but you really don't want to be paying high transaction fees if you can avoid it. I imagine you would actually prefer cash at the time of pickup if possible?
What are you using for point of sale transactions at the yard? Do you take credit cards? Checks? Trade-ins?
If you plan to sell at the physical location via the webstore, I would probably look for a platform that ties together a physical location retail POS + website integration.
Shopify BigCommerce and Square offer fantastic and easy to use services, but with higher fees.
If tying the retail to the webstore inventory is not required, you might want to look into woocommerce for the webstore.
