Yes, they are within 1/2 mile of me... In Athabasca, Alberta Canada

I can get the sleds if they are of use to you. These machines all use the
narrow HP Storage Works carriers not the wide blue or green ones.

All the dispersal, packing, and shipping will be done by me. The owner
wants no part of it. I am willing to send small quantities of things
hither and yon. Shipping a DS15 will be hard work but possible, shipping
an ES45 will be seriously hard. I am unwilling to box and ship the
RA8000/HSG80 but I am willing to part it out.
Anybody who wants to come visit Athabasca with a 1/2 ton truck can have the
whole lot including the 7 foot rack or a subset of the whole. I would be
thrilled not to have to pack and ship stuff.
