    I wouldn't pay anymore than $1200 for it.

    Here a 36" TTHP goes for $4400 + tax new. I bought one a couple years ago for $3700 no tax with about 20-30 hours on it. A buddy of mine was trying to sell his (TTHP) for around $3500. I think you can find a better deal.

    $1200 seems awfully cheap for a 3 year old,very low hours machine.Especially when a new one is 4x as much.

    If that viking is in good shape, I'd think about 1/2 the price of a new one, about $2k. I just bought a brand new 36" Viking 2 weeks ago for $3899 plus tax. I have to say it is an incredable machine. VERY easy to manuver, clean smooth cuts, and quite easy to get used to operating. I had a 36" Bunton belt WB for about 5 years. I can't believe how much better the Viking is.
    Maybe offer $1800 site unseen, then negotiate from there once you have inspected the unit in person.
    Does it have the ECS controls like the new models?
