You can get a v good ship at sensible prices. Not sure if the "asking price" on these advertisements is anything more than an opening bid in the negotiation.


PM me if you want to be put in touch which some private sellers.

I could not be happier, after 800 hours on a RavenII, its a totally different machine, and I agree it cannot be compared to a Robinson, be it a 44 or a 66.
I now have over 100 hour of operation in 6 months without the smallest snags or issues...just pure pleasure and safety.


my total cost is well Under the price of a new 66, but I have years, if not décades of pleasure, it will survive me for sure, the 505, as equipped is well over 1,5mm us, well above a reasonnable used 120....and definitely not the same, although they are manufactured here in Montréal.
Hi there, which shop in Montreal did the job? is your EC120 red by any chance... in the St. Hubert area?
