Value of used Grizzly machinery???

Ecbntmkr's picture

Hi all,

I have an opportunity to pick up a Grizzly model G1026 3HP shaper with 17 different cutters and a Grizzly model G1033 20" planer. Both units are about 4 years old used by a hobbyist. Two questions. Does anyone have an estimated value of where the price should be for these units? Obviously I know I have to take into consideration condition and what type of cutters etc. Second question, would anyone be interested in the shaper? I am considering buying both and then reselling the shaper. I am located in SE Wisconsin.

Thanks Eric

ECBNTMKR,


When considering used machinery, I look at half the new price as a starting point for a functional, unabused machine and might go up to 2/3 if the condition is excellent, manuals included, extras, etc.  Grizzly may go a bit cheaper percentage wise than "big name" brands but not much.  My 2cw--hope it helps.


Regards,


Mack

Macks comments are "right on" in terms of my observation of the sale of used equipment. If you watch the classified ads in your local paper ( the best part of our paper) the stuff that is listed at 50% of new goes in a heartbeat if it is in good shape. The stuff listed at 75% of new, never sells. Makes sense because why would one pay almost new prices for used; might as well buy new and get the warranty, etc.

Grizzly sells their new, just no box stuff in their scratch and dent tent sales for about 15-20% off to give you an idea of value.  I agree with the previous posters in saying start with 50% and go up or down based on condition and extras.

I am interested in your shaper. What shaper knives do you have? state your price and lets see what happens. Bob   bob2gofishin@aol.com
