Well, all I wanted was for someone with more experience in this field than I have to indicate that the prices I got are as low as I can expect to find. The comment about trying to make the purchase out of my own state is well taken and, in fact, what I quoted were from such a place, thanks to wrooster who provided me with the contact in a private message. For comparison, the in-state quotes for a new BX25 were $17,000, $17,190 and 17, 900; whereas, the out-of-state one was, as I reported before, $16,450, including delivery. Not a real big difference, really, and there's something to be said in favor of buying close to home when spending this much. But on the other hand, buying one that is a couple of years older with only 100 hours could save me about $2,500. I'm generally a bit leery of getting used equipment, especially machinery I'm not familiar with, but that seems like a substantial amount.

If others reading this have comments, I still want to hear them.

A 100 hours is nothing for these machines but it would be good to have it checked out carefully just the same.

That is one badass piece of property. I'd be proud to call that place home.
