    It is a 97 (I think) I-R 185 compressor When I ran across it it was at 950.00. Just curious as to what you all think the final $$ will be. I was interested in it but I'm going to chug through this season with my I-R 140 antique. I think I'll look to pick up a larger one next season.

    What do you think:
    Final price
    Fair price

    It's up to $2,800 now. I've used them before. Nice compressors.

    it will go for at least $4,000. that is what they sell for here, used of course!

    i would break the bank and pick it up...the hours don't matter...for what we use them for, it would last forever.

    It went for 4600.00 If it was, as they said, in excellent shape it would last for several years as a winterizing machine. The winning bidder got a good deal. In my area it would probably bring 6,000.00 at least.

    diesel motors will last forever...change the oil, fuel filter (diesel is VERY dirty) air filter and check oil in compressor pumps.

    that's it. diesel motors will run forever.
