    Has anybody used a Zahn 300 and know what they cost?

    We got one this year after our old 255sx was just costing us too much in repairs. We got the plow and the boring unit with wheel weight kits that all together cost around 24,000. I haven't used it much, but the install crew loves it. They like how it can get into the tight spots to start. However, the zahn is much longer than the 255sx so it takes some planning on pulling zones.

    I think that is what they are wanting here in Canada with OUT boring and weights. I just don't know anybody that has used it yet, they tell me it is way better then the 255. The fact that it is longer could be a problem. Thanks!

    I don't think it matters what machine you use, head turning to watch all around the machine is a must anyways.
