I got this message today and I'm leaning towards the new 318. Any suggestions?

"Hi Rob, I have a question maybe you can help me out I’m looking for my first truck mount however not sure which one should I pick between Sapphire370 used with 3600hr or used 1200. Or Hydramaster 318 new for 14500".

3600 hours on the 370 means the engine is getting close to the end of its life. If you buy the 370 add an extra 3k for eventual engine replacement. That being said I think the sapphire is a better machine.

If the new 318 is about the same price as the used 370 I’d probably get the 318.
