Airman 185 air comperssor with Isuzu 4cyl motor? any experience with them anyone?

I'm looking at adding another compressor and found a Airman 185cfm with the 4cylinder Isuzu diesel motor.
model number pds or pdr 1851
asking 4350.00- fair price?

Does anyone have experience with this brand or motor?
Any key things or parts to mainly check outside of if its building pressure or leaks? Never had any problems with our IR.

Thanks

Which units are they selling? Not that I'd buy from 2000 miles away, but just asking. I've been thinking of going to a truck mount for the F150, and my guy could still take the 185 for the commercial properties if needed.

To the OP, $4300 seems a little high for that. How old or how many hours?

he needs to give his location - the price might be in Canadian dollars - the time meter might be showing metric hours

I have a 2009 185 airman and it is a nice machine. It was $11,000 brand new. So I wouldn't spend $4000 on a 20 year old machine.

They are a great compressor and if demand is high thats not a bad price but more like a $2500 price would be best
