Guys what would you say is a good price for a used 50-760. Assuming everything is as it’s supposed to be. I have a guy trying to sell me his but not sure what I should offer. I was thinking about 300 since they are going brand new for 450-500. Whats the collective wisdom saying?

Toolking.com has brand new Delta 50-760 dust collectors for $369.99.

How much of a drop in value is it to you, to not get the box, new warranty, and never used bags and filters?

I would offer $250.00, not expecting him to take it, but wouldn’t go over $300.00… For that money, you can throw a little extra in, and get a brand new one.

Greetings juicegoose,

Given that the d.c. is in good shape, and everything works good on it, I’d offer somewhere between $250—-275, and like db said….don’t go over $300…..Also….unless he’s planning on buying a new d.c, ask about throwing in some flex hose with it….Otherwise, if he plans to buy a new one, he probably won’t fo that route, and will keep the hose. It sounds like he’s not, and just wants to get rid of the one he has…don’t know. Just “dicker” with him and find out….All he can do is say no….. or yes…..good luck in your endeveors…

I picked one up a couple of months ago for $200 off of Craigslist. He wanted to $225, but I negotiated a little with him. It was wired/plugged for 240, so I had to rewire it and throw a $8-plug on there.

(Warning, shameless blog plug ahead:) I actually just finished that last night and blogged about it here:
http://lumberjocks.com/JonathanG/blog/18057

It had seen some use and one of the black side bolts had a bit of the plastic broken, but nothing that affects its performance.

My vote would be $250 as your “top price” and maybe start out lower than that.

A buddy of mine, Todd, (also a neighbor and fellow LJ), picked up a JET 1100a a few weeks before I got the delta. I think he paid $200 for it, plus all the goodies the guy threw in. That was also a Craigslist find. He did have to drives a ways to get it, but the guy also threw in a bucket full of connectors, blast gates, and some flexible piping.

So, I guess you also need to take into account whether or not he’s including anything else with it, such as a remote switch, blast gates, piping, etc.

Let us know how it turns out.

So I ended up buying the collector for 340. Could have gotten the machine alone for 300(he was pretty firm). 40 more got me his thein baffle, about 10 standard wire 4” hose clamps, floor sweep, 2-90 degree fittings, a tee fitting, 3 standard blast gates about 20-30’ of nice flex hose, and various other cut chunks of 4” flex. His setup was weird to say the least. He had the wye installed wig one line direct to the blower and the other to the thein baffle. Out of the baffle he had a 4” tee with two trunk line coming out and blast gates then also had a line coming out of baffle for the sweep. Needless to say it was inefficient and didn’t flow much. Not to mention both the lines and the bag were full of chips. After a quick check it found it’s way into my truck. Think it was an okay deal.

Have your say...
