Depends on hours of machines. Remember, money talks. I couldnt see him turning down 45 crisp 100 dollar bills.

Unless the hours are high I would go for it. The gear seems to be in good shape and worth the asking price but I would start much lower and see what happens.

That looks like a nice setup! Of course try to get it cheaper, but looks good to me.

Don't plan on bagging?

Looks like a good deal as long as they don't have 2500 hours on them. Start off with a low ball offer and bargain up

That looks like a nice package, and would definitely put you in a good starting position. I don't think he would take 4500, but I do think he would take 50 crisp Benjamin's

I think the hours on the Machine a pretty average I'm almost positive they are not hi or anything. I'm probably going to go look at it either today or tomorrow and I think I should lowball my first offer at 4000 and then move on from there.

Thank you for all the replies so far!

If you low ball that much he'll know that it's not a serious offer ... might tell you to leave !!
