It may be a deal where you could re-sell the setup, sell the TM separate, and the rest separately.
I wouldn't buy it to expand my business though, not enough power.
Funny, the website says they use Briggs n Stratton.

www.eltorotruckmounts.com their website no longer exists.
Looks like they got started in '09 and they are already gone.

Does NOT sound like a piece of equipment I would want in my fleet.

That's a good deal, especially if it works and is not problematic. Your dry times may not be as fast as a $15,000 machine but you can make just as much money.
