    if it is in a good condition then yes. Remember though if you happen to break a part or something gets damaged on the machine, the parts will be hard to find or replace.

    I don't know... The verbiage associated with the auction makes it seem like it is in decent condition. IMO, the pictures don't look that great though. Just be careful. If I were you, I'd call the guy (he lists his number) and quiz him pretty thoroughly.

    Good luck.

    It depends on the condition of the clamps. Replacing them can cost a few hundred, but probably much less than that. The switch for pulling/releasing tension could need replacing(but it is easy to do and cost is minimal). It should be cleaned and serviced. And of course, calibrated(you tube has a video on this)

    Otherwise, the unit is a workhorse. I have one in the corner and it still runs great. The Star 3 runs great too. Looking for a Star 5 at some point.

    Check with tennismachines . com they can service you unit if needed. At $500, it is a very good buy if the machine is in good condition.
