I'm shopping for a hydraulic press. The prices are all over the map.
I know that the components, the type of steel, and various other obvious differences can affect the price.
Questions: Do these usually come with any accessories? Or are they extra?
Is air powered better than hand powered?
Do I really need a XX ton when an X ton would do? What's the smallest size YOU would buy and why? I like to buy slightly larger than I think I'll need for that once in a while situation, but don't need a huge one if an average one will do it.
What are some good brands of oldies in case I can find one locally through Craigslist or my local Tradio program?
What should I pay for new and used?
Thanks in advance
