Default Quilt EZ Butler robotics

I have this system on my older Ansley 26 tin Lizzie longarm machine. And my machine went to the graveyard yesterday. The butler was bought and added in 2016 and contacting them they tell me it can be transferred to another machine for probably $300, to get appropriate attachment brackets and having soft wear up graded and connection cords for what ever machine I replace mine with. Should I just sell the robotics and bite the bullet and buy a new intergrated system. What would this robotics system be worth to some one else? Thoughts anyone?

I have the Butler system and I really like it.
I guess I'd be looking at what I want as a replacement machine and go from there - you might find a deal that involves both robotics and the machine that is easier/more economical vs buying a machine and paying to upgrade the Butler.
Personally I think you'd have a hard time selling the robotics unless the person was able to try them out on their machine before purchase... just my thoughts....

think GERMR is right--figure out what long arm you will replace the Tin Lizzie with first and then figure out if keeping the Butler system is a good fit or whether replacing the LA should include a computer guided system and which one.
