Examples of products that may be sold under operations within this classification include, but are not limited to, new or used forklift trucks, conveyors, push hand trucks, heavy woodworking machinery, chain saws, stone crushers, printing or bookbinding machinery, ice making machinery, textile machinery, gasoline service station equipment, logging equipment, construction machinery, and oil or gas well equipment (new only). Work may be performed in a shop or store setting, as long as it is not rated in another class code. Commonly performed jobs include things like waiting on customers, handling parts, taking physical inventories, demonstration of products (both on and off the premises), ordering of machinery, and delivering machinery to customers.

Class code 8107 includes a variety of workers, but there are some closely related exclusions that should be separately classified. These include clerical workers, exclusive outside sales representatives, farm machinery dealers, mobile crane leasing or rental service contractors, and anyone who erects, installs, and assembles/disassembles machinery.
