    Seems like a low price for that machine, either there's "something wrong with it" or someone's old lady is selling the old mans stuff!:laugh:

    I would think that market value would be around $18,000- $20,000+ for that machine. looks like the U/C is in good shape

    Only the D5 came up. That's way too low. It should be around $30-$35K. Probably a scam or misprint. On the flip side, I have heard of crazier deals due to divorce or estate sales...

    Make sure you get the serial numbers checked before you give the guy a cent. Those things look like they're so hot you'd need ovenmits.

    It could be stolen equipment or insurance fraud the owner claimed it stolen got insurance money for it.

    If it sounds too good to be true then becarefull because its nothing but trouble.
