Selling my personal  Preston handset HU1 and MDR1. 

I have upgraded to the HU3 and MDR 2 and looking to consolidate my gear a bit.

This has been a fantastic unit that has been a great workhorse tool for me. In 18 years I have only replaced two fuses and changed the iris slider this past Christmas,which got a bit loose. The main knob works like new. New slider has zero hours on it.

The unit comes with a omnishot battery adapter and i will include two large Sony M size batteries with the purchase.

The original charger and batteries are included which will likely need a rebuilt as they have not seen a charge in 5 years since I switched to the omnishot adapter.

This unit does work on 12 and 24 V, there is no external 24v adapter needed as in the UHF versions.

Asking 5000.00 USD for the lot.

will consider breaking up motors and MDR separately if kit does not get serious offers.

 

This unit actually outperforms my current Preston for range.

FAQ

it cannot be upgraded to G4

there is no serial port for cinetape

 

This would be a great unit for a newer op who needs a reliable focus unit that can be offered to production at a reasonable price, and gives you an upgrade path to HU-3 by re-using the motors  and having the cables remade.
