Value of Reliant DD37 Planer?

I have found a Reliant DD37 15" planer for 400$ and I am wondering if this would be a good buy. I have tried to research it on the internet, but they do not seem to be a very common item for sale. Any input would be appreciated.

I have had a reliant 15 in planer for about 22 years and have used it hard. I think new it cost about 6 to 700 dollars. I have worried through the years it would fail and I wouldn't be able to get parts, but have never needed any. Don't know if they are even still manufactured. it has been a
workhorse. I think I bought it through harbor freight.

Reliant has been out of business for many years.

thanks guys. Went to look at the planer and it looked solid, but had not been taken care of. I guess that leaves me still in the market. Would like to find one about 400-500$ if anyone finds one, would greatly appreciate the heads up.

Reliant now out of business. I think $400 is too much.
Make a low offer and see if they accept it.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

I have a Reliant DD37 planer. I like it. I am in the process of ordering a spiral cutter head from Grizzly and replacing the three knives.
Grizzly's T27695 spiral head is supposed to fit per message I found from someone online who used one of those. Time will tell but the manual from Grizzly showing the replacement of the cutter head has pictures that look just like my planer so these planers are offered under different names and they come from a Tiawan factory so I think better quality than what comes out of China.
