If you are considering the purchase of a previously owned Skier’s Edge machine or parts from Ebay, Craigslist or other auction sites, etc., we want to make sure you are well informed about the machine or parts as they may be out-of-date. We want to be able to provide you with this important information. Every Skier’s Edge machine has a unique serial number to identify it and its parts. Before you purchase a used machine: MAKE SURE THE MACHINE HAS A SERIAL NUMBER. We do not support Skier’s Edge machines without serial numbers. Before you purchase a used machine, we recommend that you call us with the used machine’s serial number in order to provide you with the machine’s history including the model, year, and other pertinent information. With a serial number, we can tell you if the machine is upgradable to accommodate out current state-of-the-art platforms and accessories, or if the machine is out of date and unable to accommodate our current accessories.
Tips to Consider when Purchasing a Used Skier’s Edge Machine:
Price: Most of the machines sold online are sold for hundreds of dollars more than the original price! We’ve seen 10-20 year-old machines sell for as much as a current brand new machine purchased directly from the Skier’s Edge Company – without a trial period or a warranty! Buying directly from the Skier’s Edge Company provides you with a 30-day home trial and a warranty on all our products.
Older machines vs new machines: Many used machine buyers don’t realize the used machine they are buying may be of the old vintage that teaches the old ski technique, and not the current techniques! All Skier’s Edge models designated as “Skier’s Edge” – “Original”, “SE II”, and some “SE III’s” were designated around the old style, straight ski. Modern ski techniques require a wider stance and edging with both skis. All current Skier’s Edge machines “S4″s, “QS5″s, “T5″s, and “LT Carvers” are designed to simulate skiing techniques on today’s modern skis.
