Rusty: This is Rusty from IOT on Twin Cities Copiers in Minnesota. I would like to do an overview of a Canon Image RUNNER Advanced C5255. This model was introduced in 2013, manufactured between 2013 and 2016. New price for this model starting at $19,000. Probably current street value of this is about $5,900 starting at, depending on the features. That brings up three year lease, roughly about $190 a month for three-year lease contract on that.

This copier is great for medium to larger workgroups, anywhere between 10 to 15 or even up to 20 people. It’s a great workhorse, 55 pages a minute black and white, 51 in color. First page out as fast as 3.9 seconds for black and white and six seconds for color. Comes with the minimum of two paper trays with 550 sheet paper capacity. Your maximum is about 5,000 sheets. The maximum paper size is 12 by 18. Those letters and envelope paper trays also available on this model.

Features, print, scan, copy, fax. Scanning resolution is 600 by 600 DPI. It uses a single pass dual scanner. It scans both sides at the same time. It speed about 75 pages a minute in simplex at 300 DPI, and about 120 pages, which basically it’s about the same, just both sides at the same time at 300 DPI as well.

For scanning features, scans to email scans to folders with other different options that can also do a scan to cloud. For output options, finishers are available in different configurations. In a finisher with one or two paper trays with a stapler, staples up to 50 pages of regular papers type, just regular 20-pound office paper. The large finisher over here on the left holds about 1,600 sheets on the upper tray and about 3,000 sheets on the lower tray. Again, staples same capacity, 50 pages per packet.

This is a great unit. If you’re interested, please give us a call. Phone number on the website, or look us up at or
