What would one expect to pay for a 2015 year model S04? In pretty good condition. Maybe some surface rust on a weld or two...

Looked at the one Priefert 's scratch and dent store had and it was $3495.00. Oughta bring close to that if it's in good shape and taken care of.

I would offer about $2800. When Priefert is displaying at a farm show, they usually give out 10% off coupons. Get one of these and you can get into a new one for 3200 to 3500.

Used ones are hard to find around here. I have been looking for 5 years for a good used one.

Thanks. Anything a man should look out for on a used chute? Should be obvious if something isn't right? If it functions properly is all i can think of. Going to check one out this morning.

Picked it up for $2,500. Little surface rust here and there. No dents. And clean. Guy said it had seen 40 animals at most. We are very happy about the deal.

Good deal. I am totally pleased with mine. Did he give you the head chain? That works great on that chute.

It is. You key one end in a slot on side of the door. Run the chain over the top of the neck. Go through a loop on the other side come back over her nose to a key it in to a slot on the side you started. Puts her head in an absolute immobile position.

I think I got that right. There is a video on it. I only do that to put on ear tags if the cow is constantly throwing her head.
