Looking to buy Follow Focus

If I buy a used BFF what should I expect to pay?
I found a Bartec handset and receiver and Heden M26P motor for $2500 I feel like thats a good deal but i dont have a n experienced perspective.
Lastly, should I be worried about a used unit without warranty or are BFFs pretty invincible?
Thanks in advance!

A BFD system is a great brand and something which you will not need to upgrade for a long long time .$2500 is a fare price for this system with a M26p Heden motor .
As to warranty etc When I first started all of my kit was 2nd hand .The most important thing to do is what ever you are buying I get the seller to send the system back to the maker(or reseller ) of the item and get them to go over the system (Yes there would probably be a fee for their time but MONEY well spent ) Or it you know a operator who could check it out for you would also be a good start.
I have had BFD's systems since 2000 (s/n 23 and many others ) and it still works great .
If the system came with a M1 motor you would be looking at around $3K to $3.5K and more depending on what cables and other brackets etc etc $4K-$4500K
When you think Well this is an investment in my future and brands like BFD's hold there value this will be money well spent .
