Rig was serviced in March and in the one year I've had it, it performed flawlessly through three features, some commercials and a TV pilot.
Transvideo is exactly 1 year old and, as my backup monitor, was never used except for one shot this April Fool's Day (coincidence??) when "Old Green" died on me. Transvideo is now the primary monitor and with the AB bracket and battery it will spin balance perfectly. You can have GPI replace the power supply on the PRO II monitor ($5,500) or you can junk it and buy yourself a different backup (or primary) monitor - your choice to make. XCS digital level works great and is compatible with almost any SD monitor using the included adapter cables. Batteries are one year old and the charger works perfectly.
No arm, no vest, no Preston, no Garfield. Asking $28,000

Why is almost the price of a new equipment??????;Something I missed.
All the best.
There's a very similar rig down the page where the asking price is $6,500 more. You planning on leaving that guy a comment, too?

$28,000 + $5,500 = $33,500 (For a sled that comes with both a PRO II monitor with a brand new power supply and a $4,400 Transvideo Superbright backup monitor)
...all for exactly $1,000 less than the other sled that comes with only one monitor - the sled that somehow didn't attract the attention of the Price Police.
But I have to say thanks, Juan. Every time you comment on my ad, it goes to the top of the page. You're my new best friend!

I'm really sorry but I repeat:In general second hand rigs are too high...I'm not the police price guy;I only made a question but look like some times it is better keep silence;really sorry , may be this replay help you to sale your sled.
I thought that it was a free forum for ask somethings.

Good luck with that current sale, by the way. You'll notice that I haven't hijacked your ad with comments on the asking price. I'd have to be pretty uncool to engage in behavior like that.

I did not intentionally harm you in any way, if you feel that this has been, honestly ask forgiveness.
My ad sales today has no relation with the comment about this, you understand, after 18 years operating steadicam really know the difference between a PRO and a EFP. There is no dark intention behind this but anyway I apologize.

And now I will apologize to any prospective buyers who had to witness this exchange and to the other sellers on the forum who likely don't appreciate my ad appearing at the top of the page for two days straight, much less having their asking prices discussed in another thread. I just posted an ad. The rest of it kind of fell in my lap and I'm sorry if it affected any other sellers.
