You sound like me.Ill put what I paid and cost to fix up for mine as I bought all used and worked on mine. My blueline, I paid 6k for and put another 2 k to fix up. My chemtex 25/45 panther I paid 1200 or 1500 and put another 2200 to fix up. My TMT 3000 I paid 1000 and fixed up for 2500. I have two more that I have bought and not fixed up. A hydramaster spitfire 4.0, which I paid 1000. And then I just bought a white magic commander for 500.
Ha I think we think alike. I have 4-5 truckmounts for like the price of a cheap one. I just buy cheap ones and Frankenstein them together. I've really got to the point where if they are cheap enough, I buy them just to have the parts. Parts are so overpriced that it really pays off.You sound like me.
