I was at a local shop today and saw about a half a dozen machines that were just traded in. Brickman's equipment stickers were still on the machines. So this begs the question, are these machines worth picking up for backup machines. I have a few smaller jobs that a 48" ex viking would be considerably faster and nicer than my old 32" metro (but in very good shape). They were dirty, and pretty beat, scratched up. Looking at the hr meters, they were all around 250-350. The dealer had one on sale for $3000. Spoke to the mechanic and he stated that they are only 2yrs old. So mechanically they should be good, but wow are they rough looking. Any one ever buy one, just interested if it would be worth the time, money and effort to clean it up as a 2nd line machine?
