Z-813 Waterjet - Floor Model Ships

It always puts a smile on my face when we are told by a prospective customer they can buy a 'floor model' from another company at a good price. I can't help asking myself, how many floor models do people have! Do they build machines and then use the excuse to discount a unit as floor model? Well, here are photos of our floor model shipping today. It was built in September 2006, and has been used every day to demonstrate our waterjet capabilities to anyone who comes to visit. We replaced it 2 weeks ago with a ZX-813 with the X-Classic controller along with several options and capabilities that are not available on the 3 year old treasure. We also sold it with a shorter as-new warranty so we took the opportunity to strip it down and go over the unit with a toothcomb. We re-mapped and ball barred the unit and were able to see any wear patterns etc. What was pleasing to us all, is the great shape of all the working components such as ball screws, bearing, linear rails etc. So, yes we do sell 'floor models', which at our current rate is every 3 years. Sorry if you were looking for a good deal on a great machine. Give us a call in 2 1/2 years and I am sure we can get you an excellent deal.
