How much warantee is left on it?

If no warantee is left I wouldn't pay more than $1000, assuming you get the torch, ground, stinger and regulator with it.

Past that you have to figgure in and prorate what you thing the remaining warantee is worth to you.

I have had my 180 for 6 years and zero problems.

It appears to be someone who thought they wanted to weld so they bought the welder then found out how hard it is and decided to sell it. I guess I will be better off just waiting alittle longer and buying a new one. I wish the money would come in alittle faster.

I pretty sure you been demoted down to giving your 1.5 cents.
With inflation I pretty sure that does not amount to very much.

If there is warantee still left on it it may be a good deal. And pending Miller's price increase.

The biggest question to me would be the ability to eyeball the machine and drive before I buy.
Depending on the condition of the machine, it might be a deal at the price Shade suggested, or it might not. A seller looking at a fistfull of cash will often change the value he has comitted to in his mind.
