Looking for one in good order and ready to work.
Will travel in the north east area to buy one.
I'm in CNY.
No rust buckets :D

The Bandit dealer put out info about incredible loan rates and conditions now. Might be able to get new and just what you want for so workable of a price and deal that it doesn't make sense to go used.

What did it go for? If I could have my absolute pick it would be a vermeer 935.
Guy wanted $8500 but he offered to take $8000.
I thought it a bit high was hoping to squeeze him a little more.
It was a 2010 with less than a thousand hours.
Looked pretty clean.

For me the smaller Bandits or the 935 I think would fit me well.
Only have a 1/2 ton truck to haul a chipper with.

I was going to borrow some funds to buy the used one.
No way can I swing a new one.

Okay. I would say do everything you can to stay with the 35 to 39 horse engines. Or a blown 25 knowing you will replace upwards. Also check the feed tray height for your body. At 6'2" the small wheels would make for a lot more bending over work for me as opposed to the taller (12"?) wheels.

I have a 65AW that is 1800 lbs. When I first saw the 75XP I thought it weighed about the same and wanted to sell this one and get a 75 but, I think they come in a fair amount heavier.

I'm about 6'.
They come with smaller than 12" wheels?

Whatever the measurement, the orange chipper you put up has the smaller fat wheels. I still think the taller wheels are called 12". I think that would be rim dia. Would bet that would be your comfort level/height for chipping.

Was that one near Erie PA? I saw one up there last year that looked very similiar to that one and at the same price range.

I found a 935 with a 40 perkins in Missouri but it looks pretty rough. Advertised for $3900 but I'll bet it could be had for $3K.

Mind sharing the numbers? Got a similar deal thing for Kubota with 0% for 60mo and 2% for 84mo on some of their tractors etc

I got a quote for ~30k for a new 75xp right before we dove into this shelter in place biz. I was a little surprised, but I don't think it's a scam... The base price was listed at 17.5k. I asked the very polite rep if the 17.5k base chipper was something that one could trailer to the job site, stick a limb in it, and get chips out the chute. No reply to that, lol.

I don't have specific numbers in mind as I wasn't ready for another chipper now. But as I recall they were along the lines of what Kubota is offering. They can't eat them, and they do want to sell them.

Not quite sure of your focus here. Sure you can get a base price 75XP but, I would advise to add on a bunch of time, labor, and frustration saving options. And those will cost money.

Any thoughts you want to talk through?
