25K for that unit is not really a bargin for one reason, and it says it right on there...Friction Bearings. No class 1 would touch that thing or move it on its own wheels. You would be looking at swapping trucks or having rollers pressed on the existing axles (exspensive shop jobs) or trucking it out...not to mention inspections, COTS dates ect.... add 15 or 20k more to that price just to move it..
