Depends on the age and condition of the unit. Remembering that some are NOT able to be repaired By Minelab due to parts availbilty. You may be able to find someone to fix an older unit. But rememberiung again some parts are proprietary and can't be had! The best advice is only buy it if you can hold and see it. You have no clue how it was cared for in a photo. Not washing off each use with soap and water will lead to problems. IMHO

I bought a used excal 1000, blue headphones for $475 and it is still working perfectly 18 months later. Bought another for $750, blue headphones, it is also still working fine 4 years later....

I would most likely pass out if I found a xcal 1000 for under 500.00 I just dont have that kinda luck.

Anything electronic you are taking a chance new or used. But you do have a warranty. Used is a whole lot cheaper than new even if you have to pay to repair it down the line as long as you get one that can be repaired. More of the ole reliables are starting to get dropped from the repair list. Surprisingly some of those are the better machines if you can get them right.

Starting to see more and more Excal on ebay. Many users upgrading to CXT 3030. Excal prices are going down. Alot of nice machines at nice prices. A nice 800 blue on ebay now in a hard case. Hard case is always a good sign of being well taken care of. Some have up to 14 days to return, can't go wrong with that. I can't decide to get CXT 3030 or more CZs, or Vi3 and Etracs. The deals are looking so good
