I'm still trying to work out how to get my hands on a 1025 TLB.
I'm in Hawaii, on an outer island. The best I can do on a new one here, with loader and backhoe is $23,600 plus 5% tax. And it will take 3 months to get it. I saw a 2016 online from a dealer with 11 hours on it in Washington State - not far from the port of Seattle. They want $18,500. I may be able to buy it without paying tax, since it will never be used in Washington.
Shipping shouldn't be more than $1000 - if they are willing to drive it to the port. And maybe I could shave a little bit off the asking price to help out with the sale.
If you were me, would you consider this as an option??? Is it worth the risk to buy - sight unseen. Or is it worth a plane flight - probably $1000 after the flight, car, hotel. Or should I just bite the bullet and buy new, with the Zero Financing option?
