There IS a machine. If you want [it] - if [it's a question of] that machine - if you want, we can take it and give it to you. (OR: We HAVE a machine. If you want [it] - if [it's a question of] that machine - if you want, we can take it and give it to you.)

Comment:
This is taken from a recorded conversation, with false starts. The final clause exhibits coda element, botus-pa, on low pitch after final falling contour. The referent of botus is plural here.
