Ebay, tractor house.com. Craigslist, thrifty nickel. Have had great luck buying equipment over the years this way.

Done this a few times in the last 4 yrs. Buy from an individual that is either closing a business or is upgrading to a bigger lift. You’ll get it for half of what you’d pay at a used forklift shop. Shop smart !!

It may be to far for ya but there is a place on 183 just north of Liberty Hill.
It appears they buy used and rebuild them. I'm sure a google search would find it for you.

Action lift is in Leander. Might be worth a call to check prices.
