We picked up a 2005 TL130 this summer for 11,000
A 2006 35D for 9,000.
Both are basic machines that needed some TLC but are tight and strong. I and a few of the other guys that work for us were able to fix the little things they needed so it wasn't a problem. I probably spent 4 months looking all over every day.
I don't care for having huge payments as this allows us some flexibility in working, what we are doing, and having some down time in winters.
