5'x12'x5' Box Mesh Trailer
32" Xmark Viking Hydrostat mower
32" Xmark Metro mower
12" Snapper commercial mower
350 Echo weed eater

What do some of the pros here think is a fair value for this used equipment. I REALLY only need 32 Hydro and the trailer, but it would be nice to have some backups. What do you think?

Always nice to have back-ups. I would guess around $3000-$3500. How much are they asking?

A lot more. What do you think I should offer on the Trailer and Hydro if they are willing to break it up?

Am I right that all that equipment would cost over 10k new?

Maybe, but the only problem is, itsn't new. go low and work your way up from there.

Both mowers have obviously been re-painted everywhere to cover up the fact that they've been beat pretty good. They sure did a cruddy job.

No, even new that stuff isn't worth 10K I don't think.

I'd say 6-700 for the trailer, and maybe 1000-1300 for each of the mowers max.

New; it would be around $8500. The fact that they did paint it suggests that in about a month the rust will be back. It is obvious they tried to "fix it up" for a quick sale. Don't pay more than $3500 for ALL of it.

Also, keep in mind, that that is a very LIGHT duty trailer. That trailer already has a load on it just from all the steel on the sides. Just look at the tongue rails....this REAL light stuff.

FiveoBoy01 I take it you didn't buy your mowers new a new Exmark mower would be anywhere between $2500-$8000.

I would n ot buy this stuff for more then $4000

Actually, I bought both my Exmarks new. I'm well aware of what they cost.

These mowers have a crappy-azz paint job on them to simply attempt to cover up that fact that they're very well used. Nothing wrong with the fact they're well used, but that has to be taken into consideration when making an offer.

Thank you very much for the help. I was not thinking about the trailer being light duty. I knew he was asking way too much. I'll let you know what happens...
