I致e never owned a table befor, I hear the Tornados are great to buy, here is a link with pictures of the table.

Could you tell me if it痴 worth buying this table or if you see anything wrong that should prevent me from buying it, and how much I should pay for it.

Thats a T3000 Coin. The highest model table in the US. Its an older one... still has cube score keepers. Has a padlock so probably in a bar or billiards hall, so it has plenty of use and potential abuse. You'll want to make sure all rods are straight (about $40-50 per rod if bent). Looks like older style handles (about $50-60 for upgraded set - optional). Might need new bearings and bumpers. Looks like a little de-laminating on pic #3. Warped play field or wall are a deal breaker... other issues listed above can be fixed with easily available parts. I'd guess a 2009 model give or take based on this post: https://foosball.com/forum/index.php?topic=2331.0

Depending on where you're located I'd say about $600-800. Tornado is the table you want to get IMO. What are they asking?

There should be a play counter right by the ball trap assembly. Check out the # of plays.  Take a peek underneath for any stains that soaked thru.  Check around the goalie mouths to see if there are any signs of blow outs.  Think it's worth between $900 to $1200 CAD since it was in a business.  You will spend about $200 on parts.  ST is right! About 12 years old.  Grab a 24" level and make sure the playing surface and sidewalls are flat.  Good table overall,  you would never need to purchase a foosball table again!  Good luck!

ST is correct in terms of age and the fact that it was used commercially. Looks like quite a bit of wear on the exterior of the table. So it probably wasn't babied. Pricing varies a bunch geographically when it comes to these tables. In the southeast, I would probably pay around $700-$850 for this table. If you are out west or far north add a couple hundred bucks. Keep in mind that even if it's in rough shape, as long as there is no water damage, you can fix it up and it will last forever and never really lose its value.
