    There are other brands, as well. You may encounter some of them by way of renting one.

    I bought a new one... I have never regretted that purchase... I know you can argue that there aren't many things that can go wrong with it so why not buy used... but it's something that I use 7 times a week. I need it to work.

    Well I bought mine used on Ebay 5 years ago - gave $220.00 for it including shiiping. And I haven't missed a lick with it. Had a wire come loose in the transmitter. Took it apart, fired up the soldering iron and good as new. That's a purchase I haven't regretted making either. Oh I have changed batteries in it several times over the years.

    Scott, next time S.W. has his back turned pull that 521 out of the trailer. Hell he doesn't know how to use it anyway. Did he ever get that trailer painted? Need to get some pics and post 'em.

    I promise I'll get mine out this weekend.
     
  9. I have friend who has a 521 for sale, he no longer is in irrigation. I asked him what he would take for it and he said the $300.00 range.
