outside of the unit looks clean but why so much rust in the exhaust?
Good catch, possible blown heat exchanger. Could also be from a malfunctioning waste tank float which is allowing water to flow through the blower.

Be very careful just did the same thing but with el Diablo. Less than 150 hours electric hose reals fresh water tank everything but got it for 8500 . And been working the bugs out ever since put extra $2000 In it included install . So at 23000 grand it’s a very big risk . Have repair cushion and do the math if there’s really savings at that price with no warranty.

dah, you have to realize that all you have to do is unplug one of the wires on the hour meter and it will be at 100 hours forever. NEVER trust an hour meter

It's understandable that you are exited about unit. I have worked for 5 years with the beast and it's indestructible. Although I have never seen that much rust in exhaust port, could be still a good buy for half of the asking price. If rest of the equipment checks out, make counter offer at much lower price. I would take first cover off, checked for leaks, oil trace, rust, belts should look brand new at 100 hours.If you have to smell oil dipstick, do it. Further investigate if unit was properly winterized.
Also check hot water box, see if float arm is rusted or for that matter the whole tank( 15 gal) has reddish, copper look like residue on the inside walls. If you've been around for a while, you should be able to spot a lemon.
Good time huntin' ....

those quick connects dont look like 100 hours??????
how long has he owned the unit????
why is he selling it?????

you can get a new everest for 28-30k????????
with years of warranty.....

just looking at the unit most of us highly doubt it has 100 hours...

most guys put in around 500 hours a year minimum on their TM......
thats only about 10 hours a week.....
if he has had it 2 years thats 1000 hours.....minimum

if you know a mechanic who can check it out...do that
then offer half 10-12k maximum.....

personally i would walk on it....unless you can have a mechanic inspect it.....
dont like someone schaming me....
same as a used car running the miles backward......

This is SO true. You can also call your local distributor and ask if they have the software to hook to the motor. If they do, they can hook up to the unit, and it will tell you how many hours are on the computer.

And also let’s not forget this guy is actually financing personally $15,000 the rest I give him is cash upfront So this deal is for like 1000 a month for 15 months I doubt that there is a problem with the unit if she’s willing to do that

bro this is what your telling us:

this guy spent 30,000$$ on a prochem everest 2 years ago.....
He is a big company with many employees.......
He has 100 contracts.......

and he has only used his everest 1 hour a week for 2 years with 100 contracts???????

either this guy is telling you the truth...and
that would make him the DUMBEST BUSINESS MAN IN AMERICA.....

or he is scaming you??????

either way if you pay cash your out........no backup plan
and like one of the guys here said he spent 10k on an everest like yours used.....

If he is taking payments....maybe ??????
I woudnt pay cash.....

bro
when I buy a car first I look at the placemats to see if they are original.......

just looking at your quick connects....they dont look like they are original//
quick connects last up to 500 hours.....????

here is a pic of the prochem everest...
https://www.sun-beltusa.com/everest-truck-mount.html
if you notice they are all silver and they all match...
i am sure that is the way that everest came...2 years ago
your quick connects are 1 silver and 3 brass...and the 3 brass dont match
looking at this ...i can garuntee it isnt 100 hours......

with his business you are guessing at the hours....
could be 1000-5000 hours......easy
at 3000 hours pumps and engine could go out and other repairs.......

Yes but let’s face it his specialty or is 100 contracts or floor polishing and floor stripping I’m wondering how can I tell from the model if it’s really a two-year-old model only sometimes I noticed that the face of the machine will change

Looks like a reasonable deal since you know the mechanic. You can probably save money on the taxes too. Start up the tm and run to operating temps with water running the thru the wand. Check to blower pump and hx. for leaks. Check e blower exhaust for water leak. If it checks out buy and make $$ Offer a little less Ck serial number

Best to have a 5 ace TM Mechinc look it over for 1 hr pay before making him a offer on it .
That rust would concern me .
The QD's is not a real deal breaker . I had 3 go bad before 200 hrs and 1 in 1 hr from the factory .parkers seem to go bad . my next ones will be Hansen.
Offer him 18k to start and go from there .

I have the same unit with 2k hours looks the same except my blower exhaust is cleaner. I wouldn’t sell mine for that price and the quick disconnects isn’t a good way to tell. That machine has got hot or overflowed thru the waste tank several times. The stainless connector is for high pressure. That’s the same way mine came. One good thing at least it doesn’t have e-idle cause it’s a joke on mine.

These deals do pop up every once in a while. I should know I have 2 Everest 650s and for both of them for under 22k. I have been running them non stop for years. Both machines are now around 5,500 hours. I've had to put some work in them but they have ran strong. Best machines in the industry in my opinion
