I don't know the machine but a look on Warco's web page may show prices for current equivalent machine. The later machines may come with a readout as standard making them worth a little more. With what is deemed as a second hand machine and no warranty I would start my offer at 50% of the present cost and maybe go up a bit. Factor in possible cost of van hire and lifting gear etc.

Good luck, let us know how you get on.

Been very reliable over all with no major issues, made a couple of simple mods - upgrades

But its handles all that I have asked of it

Check if it has the fixed and travelling steadies and two chucks. Depending on year it might not have had them from new though.
