buying a used TM can be a nightmare if your not careful. You have to know what to look for.

Many times over the years local cleaners have put their TM up for sale. Pictures look great, but when I go to take a look at it, its beat to hell.

Last week I saw a Prochem Apex go up for sale in our state. Nice looking machine but had 7972 hours listed on it. Ad goes away but pops up in a neighboring state. Guess what? Now it has 6787 hours on it. Makes you want to go HMMM.

But on the flip side, pne just popped up locally that looks like the real deal. Son posted the ad that Dad is selling due to illness. Older van but low hours and low miles on the van. Looks spotless for its age.

Anyway, when buying used, buyer beware!
