you just said it all, No service network and no dealer network. I'd steer away from this, it sounds like something that's too good to be true if you found a good price on it. It's made by man; parts will wear out and stuff will break. you need to be able to reliably source parts, and or be able to get service on machinery, that and if you go to resale it, it's doubtfull you'll get anywhere near what you paid for it. just my humble opinion.
