Free to a Nonprofit: HP Designjet 4500 Large-scale Printer

The plotter was purchased in 2006 and works great for 2-3 plots at a time, but then starts to do some streaking. It has been serviced for this problem, but the issue still persists. After printing, it needs to rest for a few hours or a day to plot perfect again. It will be great for an organization that just needs to print out 2-3 maps or prints a day intermittently. Dimensions are 76" long x 54" high x 30" deep. Please contact Breece if you are interested.
