Normally they sell for $6,000+ used, so its a pretty good Deal. I got lucky and snagged mine from a rental center that was closing For $3,800. Had a new engine (old one was burning oil) and the paints faded.

If you are doing tree work full time, I'd say get a bigger one just to handle bigger branches, but if you are starting out in tree work, or do landscaping,(like me) I'd say get The bandit.

Thanks for the reply. My dad just looked at the Bandit 65 for sale. He said that it's "old" but seems to be a good machine. It has a 4 cyl. air-cooled engine I believe - Wisconsin. He is still considering it. Any other replies are appreciated.
