I imported it from the US and can't recall exact cost but it was probably somewhere around $1200-1500 with shipping.

But not made anymore :D

Interesting!
i wanted to go Electric a few years back but everyone told me that they were no good so they stopped stocking them, I found all of the excuses a bit strange but that's what I was told and no one had them!
I do have to say the ARB lockers are very good and the addition of the Compressor is worth it if not just for pumping up the tyres - the new ARB unit is very fast!
But I can see the potential for leaks and several people I know have had internal leaking problems - broken internal pipe in one case.

Good luck with it - hope they take off over here.

There was a guy from OL Rockdale at Son of Trials on the weekend and he was selling the e-locker for about $1650 fitted. I think that's a pretty damn competitive price considering it's about the same to have an arb unit fitted.

Not bad, My lockers cost me about $3,400 - 3,500 can't remember the actual total - but that was because the Compressor was supplied free as part of the special, plus that included the inflation and repair kit.
The only down side of Electric lockers is the lack of a compressor to inflate your tyres - but I guess some would also see this as an advantage.

When talking to ARB I was offered hardened Air lines, but then talked out of it given the example of soft lines get snagged and pull off, hard lines will snap and need replacing.

I have an Eaton eLocker in the front of my 2008 BT50. I haven't had to really use it in anger yet though :-(
