Want to buy another Finn
« on: Sun November 13, 2016, 11:31:27 PM »
In 2008 I bought my first Finn Hydroseeder. I bought a T-75 as a demo unit. It was a 2007 and had 248 hours on it but in actuality it had less because the key had been left on a couple of times. It was in almost new condition. I paid $26,000.

Now I am looking to upgrade more importantly for a diesel engine than capacity. I have had my eye out for the same kind of deal for a T-120 straight trailer (not gooseneck). I think now is especially important to find one with similar hours and in the same condition because I want one with the Kubota engine.

I have had my eye on this one in the link below but I also have to take into consideration the cost for truck freight. The estimated cost for freight is between 1,875 - 2,675. Seems like the cost of the hydroseeder is a little high being 4 years old. There is really no blue book for finn hydroseeders that I know of that would tell me the true value. Anyone know what this hydroseeder might really be worth? I would like to offer a fair price but also get a real good deal especially if I need to come up with a couple more grand to get it to me.

I'd fly down and look at the machine. I have had several bad experiences with road builders and a friend has also. I will drive several hrs the other way to deal with a different company.

Thanks for all the replies. I could not pass up the special Finn was offering in March for the free stainless steel upgrade. I am also very happy with the front load option.
