I NEED TO REPLACE A BED, BUT ONLY HAVE ABOUT 10,000.00 TO WORK WITH, I WOULD LIKE TO GET A BED UNDER 15MINS, WE NOW HAVE 15MINS BEDS WITH 41BULBS. LOOKING TO GET A BED THAT I COULD CHARGE MORE A SESSION FOR. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONs. I WILL BUY A USED ONE. IF I HAVE TO.
SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE DIFFERENT OPINIONS, I AM TRYING TO NARROW IT DOWN. ANY COMMENTS OF SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
THANKS ALL.

Sounds like you need a VHR bed. 10-12 min max session time. What kind of 15 min lamps are you using in your beds now? Are they a higher UVB lamp(CosmoSun 515) or a reflector lamp(VLR)? If they are a higher UVB 100 watt lamp a VHR bed would really get your tanners excited. I recently put in a used Orbit 44/4 into my salon, and I think I might need another one next year. Where are you located at? In So.Cal. an Orbit session fetches $20-$28 per session! The clients like it a lot. How much power do you have to play with? This bed needs a 60 amp breaker by itself. A used Orbit will cost about $5000-$8000. then account for shipping, set-up, new lamps, and maybe a new acrylic or two. What is great about the bed is the 4 1000 watt facials. They really do the job in 10-12 mins.
Good Luck.

Hey catchatan, Ergo has a great bed for you. His bed is real powerfull and it looks like it's in your price range. He's selling a StingBee VHR 6000/5. It has 50 160 watt lamps and 5 1000 watt facials. It's made by UltraSun. This bed kicks ***! I wish I had enough money to purchase it! That bed would make you a lot of money. he's on the Buy/Sell page with your bed question.
Good Luck
