For sale is my Preston microwave system with 2 motors.
Previous owner was Rich Davis, this system has been super well taken care of, with the usual and normal wear and tear marks, but system performs flawlessly.
Here's the content of the package:

Preston MDR 1
Microwave receiver for MDR
PRO MDR bracket
Hand Unit 1 with Omnishot battery adapter
2 large capacity batteries (one battery has a non functioning fuel gauge but works normally)
1 small capacity battery (still lasts longer than original Preston batteries)
1 charger
2 DM? Motors (the large and more powerful ones...)
Additional gears: Canon focus, Fuji focus, Panavision Iris, 48 pitch.
2 PAM motor brackets for 15mm (one is an Arri rod size with a 15mm step down ring)
9 focus rings
Manuals
Pelican 1600 case

Cables:

2 motor cables
Arri 435,535, Moviecam run (3pin Fischer)
Arri 12V run (11 pin Fischer)
Fujinon video run
Canon video run
Aaton run
Panavision run
2 Arri 24V MDR power
Panavision MDR [power
Pelican 1060 for cables

I'll be soon upgrading my system, so this one is looking for a good home. Has served me very well, never had a single problem with it, solid performance. It's ready to go, add a power cable to your sled and you're done!

Asking $ 14.000 + shipping
Case will be shipped unboxed, with padlocks.

Hey Dan, 14K? that's a lot!
Well, it's a really good package, complete, doesn't need anything else for a two channel system!
OK, what do you say 10K?
Are you nuts? couldn't do that... what about 13K?
OK, let's meet in the middle, I'll part with the system for $12.000,00

So there you go, negotiation is done on your behalf,
new price:

$12.000,00

As a couple of people have pointed out, my attempt to humor didn't quite work outPosted Image... so my last post meant that the Preston is still available,

Wish I had the cash. How about $110/month for the next 100 months? :-)

I'll totally beat Jess' offer. I'll do $50/month for 220 months!

But seriously, if you haven't unloaded it by mid summer or so, you will likely hear from me. Although, if that's the case, I might assume something is wrong with it!
