Keep an eye out on Craigslist, yard sales, Nextdoor, etc. for a used one. Just be cautious, as the first one I bought ran fine I thought, even though it had a lot of hours on it. Then I took it to someone to check it because it wasn't running my torch right for long, then would quit, and it needed a lot of work to fix it. I ended up buying a reconditioned one from them for the same price so I could take it home that day.

Good luck! Some people have been known to find real bargains when they kept looking.
It was kept outdoors in a shed because of space issues unfortunately. There is one listed on my local craigslist for 150$ but it has 16,000 hours on it and the person hasn't responded to my questions about it which isn't a good sign. I don't mind paying for the repair if it is going to last you know, but I am terrified of paying and than having it die shortly after.
