    Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but here it goes.

    I have been looking on Craig's list and found a used 1075 with all controls, wiring, and mounting hardware...Unsure of the date of mfg but the unit looks extremely clean and no rust...Its not a 1075x so that kind of dates it...

    They are asking 1100 does this seem like a fair price?

    Also saw a 575 with extra harness, controls, vibrator kit, etc but its rusted and needs a new spinner they are asking $800 which I think is ridiculous...Should note its 7 years old

    From the research I have done these units seem to last a long time with general maintenance...

    Thoughts?

    Ive seen new between 1500 (new late models, like this on ebay though) and 2100 bare bones new

    I also am kicking myself I missed out on a 1075 for 500 bucks (granted 2.5 hr one way drive) seems the good deals you need to be johnny on the spot

    I just sold a two year old, clean 575 for $950. $1100 for a 1075 is fair.

    Valid point...two actually

    Anything specific I should be looking at...I'm pretty mechanically inclined and these things are rather simple construction...IS there anything that typically goes or would show a sign of misuse/abuse

    Without taking off the lower motor cover, no not really. Just make sure it works, and no unusual noises or codes from the controller

    Valid point...I'm going to be that guy that brings the trouble shooting guide from the manual (found the PDF online for the 1075/575)

    Well unless it's not working the trouble shooting guide really won't do you any good. But keep it with you in the trk

    What type of mount does it have?

    Said hitch mount...

    I know there are three types available: Hitch, Pivot, and Three point...

    Any concerns with the 1075 and a hitch mount?

    Nope, I'd suggest the 3 point if you buy it.

    I talked him down and got it...

    Though I just realized I do not have the side support arms for the receiver hitch (RHT375) will this be an issue, I will probably get them at some point. I'm guessing as long as I dont overload my hitch tongue weight I should be good to go, thoughts?
