RARE OPPORTUNITY !
The Mega Master shown below is one of only 5 in Australia and its owner has just taken delivery of a new truck so it is for sale.
This model is no longer made even though there is still demand for it. Internally it is the widest Boeckmann float made and because of that and the well known height it is very suitable for two extra big horses. The pic shows the generous amount of ventilation which is so important in our country.
In front there is a very neat walk-in change room with shelves and hanging space as well as a bench seat, saddle and bridle brackets as well as space for a mobile tack box. A full height door connects to the horse area. In addition there is a seperate storage compartment for rugs, buckets etc as well as the included broom and shovel. The suspension is independent coil springs with heavy duty shock absorbers and a super smooth dual braking system to all four wheels adds to the usual Boeckmann safety features. The float has absolutely no rust and has been well maintained. It weighs approx 1,300 kg with a legal total of 2,700 kg. If it were still available new it would cost near to $ 35,000. The asking price is a very reasonable $ 24,000. Contact the owner, Lesley-Anne Taylor on 0419 182 443
This message is for any existing Boeckmann owners and also any who may become one.
In order to reduce advertising costs I have decided to minimize magazine ads and instead reward referrals from existing customers that lead to sales.
There is an excellent new internet retail site which offers a lot of the products which I myself use and also a lot of interesting products which we normally never see in saddlery shops.
So my offer is to give a $ 500 gift voucher on www.horseandpetdirect.com.au for referrals which result in the sale of a float by myself.
In any case you may find it interesting to browse this new site, I seem to discover something new every time I visit it. Just click on their logo to go straight there.
You may want to know why I work with Horse & Pet ? They will help and promote my business, so I try to help them. Besides, I really like their stuff.

HERE IS A BASIC PRICE LIST OF THE MAIN MODELS WE SELL, SHOWING ALSO TARE AND TOTAL LEGAL WEIGHT :
Very important, but not often asked by customers, is the ball weight, the down force on the car's tow ball. The legal maximum is shown in the car's operating instructions. Most float builders or sellers don't provide this info or won't do so because often it is much too high. The ball weight for all the models shown on the list above is approx 75 kg empty or loaded.
Once your order has been accepted and a deposit paid, the agreeed price is guaranteed. With the current downward slide of the Aus $ against foreign currencies including the Euro the above prices may not be sustainable. So, by bringing your purchasing decision forward you can lock in the current price and save some money.
