price check, Mohawk lift 10k

I'm in the market for a lift. Looking at 10K size, 2 post.
Want something top quality within a budget of about $3500.
I found a used Mohawk 10k lift. It is 4-6 years old. Supposidly still looks new. Guy is asking $3XXX. Said it cost $6XXX new. I searched online and didn't find any pricing.
From my limited searching this sounds like what I want.
Does this sound like a desent price and a good choice in a lift within this budget?

I've never priced Mohawk (or heard of them) but it sounds high. You should be able to get a new 10k lift for $2800 to $3500, not sure I'd be willing to pay $3k used.

Have you priced a comparable Rotary or Bend Pak (or whatever)?

edit: I mean here's a clear floor, 10k, symmetrical, extra wide Bend pak for $3k new from Northern (bet you could find it cheaper thru other sources as Northern is rarely the cheapest for anything)

Here's a link to the company website.

http://www.mohawklifts.com/

If you Google it you will find suppliers but w/ no prices listed. Make a few calls and you will find out if your getting screwed over or not.

I live a ways away so shipping was a little high, but my 10,000 pound lift with some extras was 5850.00 to the door.

Around here, great condition, 9000lbs. Rotary's sell for at or < $2000.

I was at an auction not too long ago where they were selling for $1200-$1500 each. But , it was a dealership auction and there were 20 of them available.

Ouch, details? It's not uncommon to find "free" shipping on lifts, which just means it's already figured into the price IMO. How much was your shipping? What extras? Brand?

I got a call back from the local Mohawk distributor(actually serves Sac area) and it was $5750 installed.

Any Mohawk lift user want to comment?

I tryed getting a used one but the 10k lift was lighter than they recomended so trying to find a 12k Mohawk... was impossible. I ended up with http://rb-wholesale.com/add2cartexe.asp?Sku=MX-12CTA instead. This lift is great lifts my Excursion without blinking! Arms don't deflect at all. Quick delivery and great service from the supplier. Check them out before ya get a used lift. I will have pic's up on my link in a few hours....New Shop also

Not sure on pricing but my uncle has been using a 9 or 10k and a smaller 6k for at least 6yrs without any issues in his local Auto repair shop.

I've looked into Mohawks before. I looked really closely at the engineering of it. Mohawks are the CADILLAC of lifts. Full hydraulic synchronization, no cables or chains at all. Beefier bearings and steel than the typcial lift. They run a solid 4X design margin, meaning it's about 4X stronger than it really needs to be. Very very nice lift. They rarely go for more than 1/2X of new. $3500 for a 10K lift is pretty reasonable. At least around here from
Mohawk.

If you don't lift heavy trucks like my X then the Mohawk is the best ya can get, But if ya do either find a Mohawk 12k or get the Bend pac.

Wheeltronic lifts are the best in the business. My new 10K Hoffman is going to be $3300.00 installed. I researched this very intensively b/f making my decision.

Wheeltronic also makes the following brands:
ACCU-TURN
AMMCO/HENNESSY
BEAR/SPX
BREWCO
HOFMANN
JBC
MAGNUM/HEAFNER GROUP
SNAP-ON
SNAP-ON IND.
SUN
