    You would right in the ballpark for usage. Most 60 PPM models have a targeted usage of 15K to 40K per month.

    they are similar, but i use that vaguely. drum is a drum, developer is a developer. but with the IMC series they have made those easier to work on. and the IMC series is their newest product line. to me the 6503 is much more involved to service and to keep it services. you may know the 6503 is one step down from the 5200 production model.

    in your opinion, do you think its a good buy at 2500 with 30k on meter, im a print shop and i don't like the click count so i have learned maintenance, as much as i can. if you have a better suggestion on a machine id love to here it, ty so much for feedback

    The only thing I would be concerned about is only 30K on a model that was introduced 5 years ago. Either that count is not right or it has been extremely under utilized.

    The main thing will be the PCDUs. If they still have the originals they may need replacing just due to age

    define "pretty cheap"? It always depends on the status of the total counter, age and maintanance parts - pretty cheap can become pretty expensive in no time

    Besides that this is a good machine even if I'm not a fan of the "ppm" pimped versions that are based on midrange office machines.

    We often buy low-priced "Green Line" IM C-Machines (Methis MF3) directly from Ricoh that were previously at larger customers with less than 100K in very good condition.
