Methinks they belong to a new member on here  ;) Wish they'd been on there a week ago as I'd have definitely been interested. My trusty old SW4548e died two weeks ago but I managed to pick a couple up from the island next door and repair it on Sunday exhappy:

https://lifeattheendoftheroad.wordpress.com/2015/07/13/the-chicken-run/ turned out to be a problem with the 'AC board'. Would have still been tempted had I not just purchased a brand new Outback GVX3048E for 681 from the same site  exhappy: I couldn't feckin believe my luck, it was tucked away in the boating section and everyone was watching Wimbledon  ::)

I was eyeing them up myself. 17 years since production and running a mill.   whistle
Hard miles and high.

[Edit]: Ah the newer one is worth a punt.

Aye, picked up a nearly new flexmax 80 for 300 last night.
OOh Paul, that sounds cheap, not familiar with the model.

Nice one Dave,

Looking at the specs it's the latest model with the G standing for 'Grid enabled' so it can be used for 'AC coupling' and utility connection.
