These have been on a local (central Kansas) trading site for quite some time. I do not know anything about VFDs, but thought I would post them in case they are a good deal (I have no idea). I'm thinking that they have been on the site so long (and postings have been renewed) that the owner might reduce the price a bunch?

http://www.nextechclassifieds.com/listings/655696/ for the "Mitsubishi A700 380-480VAC 3hp inverter never been hooked or had power to it." asking $800.

http://www.nextechclassifieds.com/listings/655695/ for the "Allen bradley power flex 700,400-480VAC 5hp normal duty and 3hp heavy duty. Han never been hooked up or had power applied to it also have the manuel with it." asking $1,000.

They are in my home town & I would be glad to help in any way I can if needed.

the problem with the listed VFD's is the input voltage.
not many folks will have 3 phase - 380v or 480v service to their residence.
industrial folks would have better use of the VFD's

They are good VFDs brands, but they are priced close to what you could buy them new and get a warranty/service, and as UD mentioned 380/480 is industrial service voltages. FYI, similar single/three phase 200-240VAC drives from Hitachi, Automation Direct, etc. would be about $400-600. Most industrial users probably get pretty good pricing through their distributors, so they probably aren't going to sell on CL at that pricing.
