Manufacturer: Challenge

Model: 230

Condition: Used. This is in fair cosmetic condition overall.  There are minor residues from prior use, and wear on the normal points of contact.  The keypad and display look nice, and the backlight is bright enough to see in bright ambient room light.  The cut stick is due to be rotated (or replaced, spares are included).  The yellow thing on the rear enclosure is a holder for the (included!) machine manuals.
The photos show the exact item(s) the buyer will receive.

Notes: This machine is in good working condition.  It wakes up with a maintenance alert that it wants to be lubricated and have its blade sharpened, but it worked for our tests without resetting those.  We used this to cut a stack of paper as shown in the attached video, without difficulty.  The backgauge moves on command, the keyboard and touch-adjustments work.  The cut line is nice and bright.  The push-out is a nice feature.  The pre-clamp works well.  The hydraulics are relatively quiet.  No other testing was done.
No manuals, cords/cables, or additional items are included if not listed or shown.
