    Anyone interested in a 2006 biljax 5533a towable lift with 60'w/h? I am buying out a local rental company's fleet and it includes this lift. I already have a 2009 genie tz50 so don't need both. Would sell either lift...

    The Biljax lift has fairly low hours and seems to operate well. It's been stored outdoors so the elements have taken their toll on the paint which is fair/avg. The attached pic is one I pulled off of an online dealer site as I don't have one of the actual unit yet. The actual lift's paint is not quite as good as the one in the photo.

    With a new paint job, this lift would probably sell for around $30k. Would anyone be interested at say $25k in its present condition or what would you offer? I'm looking to move it fast.

    kuddos to your ambition at a young age. Never too young to think big and plan for the future so keep it up.

    For landscaping or lawn care, I'd go for a john deere utility tractor with a 3-point pto. the 3-point attachments (tiller, power rake, etc) are cheaper than hydraulic ones and work better IMO. Also, with turf tires, you can go over lawns without ripping them up. The downside is you can't move material as quickly as a skidsteer can so you have to decide what your primary purpose for having a machine will be - material handling/moving or running attachments that do lawn installation/renovation, etc.

    When you get the cash together, look for an older JD 955 or the newer equivalent - a 4000 series (32hp is a nice size) but you're going to need about $10k to get a decent starter machine and then more $ for attachments. Sometimes, you can find older machines for less but remember those machines cost money to maintain and repair too...

    good luck.
