His VTS wasn't $15 large...thought it was more like $5 large? Thinking about it, I would have given him more for his VTS just for parts value.
I like VTS but someone is stupid to pay that.
My NH170 I bought new for $20,300 and put 800 hours in four years and sold it for $16,000. It allowed me to roll in to a new Case with all that equity. I could go on about some of my other skids but I have been able to buy new and 'flip' them rather than run them in to the ground. The only skid I've taken a beating on was that Mustang MTL16, new $33,500 and barely two years and 100 hours later got $21,000. I'm still bleeding from that.
