Anyone want to give me a well paid job in London?
I'd even settle for people just giving me money for no reason.

That Searider 5.4 looks perfect for some wave bashing fun. Pitty it's in South Hampton and not Chicago! I'd buy it on the spot

I may be wrong and out of touch but I thought they seem very pricey for the condition they appear to be in.They do have one with an engine and white painted trailer for 9,500 pounds I would have said 6,000 tops .What does someone in the know think. Are they priced right

For in the UK probably

From what I've seen on the various UK websites it boils down to age, powerplant, and trailer. A good combo will fetch better money. Since they are everywhere in the UK I imagine they'll fetch less than over here.

I spent a whole 2 years looking for the opportunity to jump on one almost regardless of the condition. Fortunately I got a decent one recently.

I've seen and heard prices between 1000 - 10,000 so it probably boils down to how its fitted out and the wear.

Not sure the new tubes would have the reinforcing patches, straps etc. Even in poor condition the old tubes are incredibly strong.

Take a look around the rest of the babcocks site-Everything on there is heavily overpriced. I did some research on the prices of the JCBs they have for sale on there and they are actually more expensive than civvy gear with the same age and hours.
