Haas HL-1

I was wandering around the shops this afternoon. We have an early 90's Haas VL-1 with very low hours, original controls, very little tooling, no bar feeder. We rarely use it but it takes up a lot of space. Does someone have an idea what kind of money we could get for it? I have a hunch the rigging fees are about what someone would pay for it but I have to ask.

I don't feel like asking the local dealers, they are the lowball types.

contact me through private email. I would like to see some pictures and a spec sheet on that particular machine. I have riggers so that is not a problem. I am getting quotes on a new lathe and mill right now. so yours might fit in well with my new hurco milling machine

use email from above

Thanks

$5k-15k for that vintage.

Want me to sell it for you? 10% off the top to me for brokering it.

You get 15k for a 15 year old Haas machine , you are rocking. my research points to closer @ 3000.

This one has very low hours. It was used moderately (1 or 2 shifts per week) for some pre production during it's first year. After that it got perhaps 20 to 50 hours of power on time per year.

Depends on condition, options, hours and location. He did say "very low hours"

Oh..and how badly the new buyer wants one.
