There is nothing wrong with the 1550.

Everything has it's use.

Schrock, I have no idea whats the costs are new or used. Try a google search to try to get a feel for what they may go for.

Buying used is not bad, but depending on the age, it may need work that you can't see. Like those rubber isolation bushings may be worn out. Also the engines take in ALOTTA dust, so if its more than 24 months old - the engine's rings may be about shot.

I've never bought a used one.

Many folks here wont participate in a 1550 thread, because of EGO.

Wackers are like pick up trucks.

You know, guys need a $40,000.00 3/4 ton diesel pick up for doing estimates and running the business.

Same with wackers. They need 5000# to compact them pavers into the bedding sand!

Thank god mother nature and genetics was on my side and I don't have those insecurity complexes.....
