That is the question? If things go as planned (which it most likely won't) what auto gives the best bang for the buck in this price range? I'll probably put half down and lease the remainder. Is ac heads within this budget?

You can get a Horizon with AC heads in that budget. Not sure what configuration though... maybe 8/10 tops. I always bounce back and forth between the Diamondback S and the Horizon with AC heads. I think I'd sacrifice the AC heads for better service though.

After fighting with the air heads on my Jav for the last 6 months I think I would love ac heads but then again the Jav is a different bird and I may just be able to benefit with an air head with traditional squeegee/chopper.

Hey.
good advice.
I think you could probably get a used 10 color from around 2005 with ac heads in that price range.
Keep an eye on equip-used.com as well as contact that guy at spot color supply as well as Tony Baldinado at M&R, and let them know when you're ready to keep an eye out for you.
Be patient and you'll get yourself a nice press for that money!

Equip used rarely has any presses. They are usually sold the day its listed.

When you have the $$$, check it literally every evening before you go to bed. That's how I scored from there. I got a great setup from them for 35K. PM me, it will blow your mind what I got for that money.
You got to check it all EVERY day, or call a rep there and see if they'll let you know before it gets listed!
