Default ESAB plasma cutter

I ran across a used ESAB ESP 100i its a pretty big plasma cutter. Does anybody know what a fair price is and are they a good unit?

It a good unit but it's three phase. Twin gas if you want to cut Stainless, etc....

I saw a sample piece of 1" 1018CRS and the cut was pretty straight. I thought the label on the side said single phase, but I looked at several pieces or equipment that day so I must be wrong.
Scott do you know what they go for used $$ ?
On another notem what is the bike in your avitar?

Esab or L-tec had a inverter model that had similar # and that was single
phase, smaller though.

Airgas has a old stock unit and they want over 2,000.00 for it.
probably worth it if I had Three phase power.

The bike was a 1976 Yamaha RD-400 after about two years of
owning it. TD/TZ body parts. That was 1978 when the pic was took.
