I know in the past if one ordered a reman machine from Fadal they basically get which ever machine is ready at the time. The controls may or may not be new as well with motors etc. I have been in the Fadal reman department and was impressed with the way Fadal strips the machine down to the base casting and then rebuilds the machines. I have one that was shipped with a used control (e-stop button had arrows completely worn off) and rusty door latches on all the cabinets. The z-axis ball screw went out after about a year. Since then I have not had any problems. I have seen remans with newer controls and new cabinets. Its just the luck of the draw. I am not sure how MAG is running the reman department now though. I would just get a new machine to guarantee getting what you want. I also would want the one (1) year warranty with their track record lately.
