Old TJ,

 I don't know what model this Prentice is but it is along the Pa. turnpike just west of the Bedford exit, mile marker 141.5 (northside of the road, can pull off in the westbound lane to check it out, there is a large turn off there and a hole in the fence  :) not my doing) I have spoken to the guy and he would basically take 500-750 for it (just my take on it) which might be close to scrap rate. It is too big for anything I would use it for. I don't remember his name but I will PM his #to you.

 It is definitly a Prentice (tag is still on it), looks like it hasn't been used in 10-15 years, but it seems repairable and there were no major welds as I remember, and the gear rack looked intact. Good luck, and if it works out CHUCK THE FORUM A FEW COIN FOR CONNECTING YOU. If you don't want the balance of the unit, perhaps I can meet you there with torches and you can have the grapple, and I'll keep the rest. I have a crane on an F-550 that I could load it with.
