Come on then, who bought the g4 on ebaY, if its working they got themselves a little bargin. if you did and you dont know to much about machines give one of us a shout before you fire it up. you really want to back flush the water system first or when you fire it up it will push all the rust and crap into the water switches.

It was very cheap it makes you think what is wrong with it. What really puts me off is how do you know if a machine is knocked off how can you tell??

Spoke to the fella now and it's owned by four blokes who chipped in for it, but they have lost there storage place and don't use it anyway. Serial numbers are on machines.

What I mean is you do not get a log book of sorts and how do you go about checking out a Serial number are these on a data base of sorts. I hope it all goes well for you mate what you said the guy told you , for me it just dosent sound right the bit about storage.

Anything you buy could be nicked? Wouldn't you think its a bit rude if you said to the chap selling it.........is this nicked? And sorry but can you prove it

henry, there's not many places you can go to get them repaired and the machine would is a small place, we all know each other in someway and if a machine is nicked lads in the trade are watching and listening . if someone wants parts and you are a little concerned about why all you have to do is ask for the serial number , its the genny's people want

I've got a nice job ready for it if i get it running, Robinhood take a chance now and then mate.The pump i have now was bought in the same way, it was dirty and still had the residue of fireproofing mortar in it and the water pump was knackered, it all cleaned up and hasn't missed a beat for me, chill Winston if it's f**k*d the extras and r&s wil come in handy the rest is spares.

It was a 2006 Mai G4 copy i bought it in 2007, the bloke who owned the company told his lad to get shot of it as he never wanted to see it again! The lad said they never got it to work correctly and f**k*d up a couple of airport jobs with mess and wrong spec, bargain. I had it twelve months before i used it because we used a diesel pump, once i used it i couldn't get rid of the diesel quick enough.

I would be up front with him spunk ask him who it got off when ,ask if he still had a bill of sale for it etc. I think it is normal to ask these questions a £1000 is not chicken feed. Can you afford to lose that kind of money some do get shafted when buying knocked of gear.

Collected it today and seems ok, got loads of extras with it 3 new r&s 2 of them D7-2 and a twister, 3 phase adapters 16 to 32 and vice vera, 3 spray guns, got it home and cleaned it up went to start it and it worked! Solenoid valve needs replacing and a couple of seals, it hasn't been used for a long time so needs a run out to clean it up a bit.
