used pivots Used corner arms

I have a chance to put up 7 systems to cover 500 acres 2 full circles and 5 windshield wipers ranging in 1280 -1750' in length's to get to 500 acres New systems are $90,000 each and too many things with production and marketing need to go perfect to service the debt on that much new iron. So I am looking for used pivots. I have 3 pivots now and we generally run 4-500 hours a year in corn in July and August to meet crop water needs. Edible beans or Soy beans only need 3 shots of .75" a week in August to make a super good bean crop. I have a Valley dealer grew up 4 miles away from the project. So looking for Valley's then Zimatics or Reinkes. T-L's are a hard no.
