    Default Acrow Props (No 4)

    I'm located in Canberra. I need to use a couple of Acrow Props, at Batemans Bay, NSW. I need them to reach about 4m. Does anyone who lives somewhere between the ACT and Batemans have a couple they might want to sell.

    Or, if anyone has a job coming up perhaps we could buy new and split the cost, maybe selling them afterwards to recoup our money. I don't have a lot of use for Acrow Props. And the local hire place only has No 2 in stock. I could transport some rented props from Canberra, but then I don't know how long I'll need them and my rental charges might end up being close to purchase price by the time I'm finished.

    What I've found so far:
    $116 http://buybuildingsupplies.com.au/ac...m-p-29473.html
    $98 https://dynaton.com.au/formwork-prod...-acrow-prop-4/
    (Dynaton quoted about $30 shipping; $60 for two)

    There are more expensive brands around, I know. I'm assuming these manufacturers are okay, unless anyone can say they are not.

    Actually, a No 3 would probably be better for me...

    I’ve located a couple of second hand arrow props in Adelaide, but I live in Canberra. Does anyone have any advice on shipping companies, couriers, etc – reasonable service, reasonable rates, who to avoid.

    Go around to the Canberra hire companys, they sometimes sell old ones, that's how I picked up half a dozen of 'em for $30 each.
    Lashings will continue until morale improves.

    That was a good idea. They might have done this once, but no longer. It varies. Scraped by some. Sent to an auction house - Greys was mentioned. Sent overseas (perhaps to countries that don't care too much about quality or condition).

    Anyway, I bought a couple new from the local Acrow outlet. So, I'm fixed.
