    I assume you are talking about a mobile floor based lift, not a ceiling track lift, nor a van lift, right?

    Try searching on eBay with the terms "powered patient lift". I found 3 pages of items this way. Not a lot are used though; most are new and not significantly discounted. Be sure you are also checking Craig's List.

    If it's a house lift, Hydraulic is the way to go imo. I had one built 32 years ago and haven't had any problems with it. Haven't had to add fluid or anything. Electric lifts are too slow for me. This one lifts me up the 36" very quickly.
    If they had a van lift with Hydraulics; I'd take it over an electric.

    Most of the older lifts are easily
    serviced (when you know how to) and in many cases work better than newer lifts.

    more of the problems come from people not knowing how to figure out whats wrong and fix the lift properly.

    Another option is to buy an older van for about $3K that has a working lift. That way, you get the lift for less than half price and the van is essentially free. Remove the lift from the van you just bought, install the lift into your van, and then sell the van that you just bought for whatever it costs you to remove and install the lift. Better yet, play your cards right by rebuilding the van and selling it for more so you essentially get the lift for free or close to it.
