I buy both, I rearly buy used handhelds. Im not afarid of having some homeowner stuff eighter.
This year I bought a toro grandstand with 60 hours for 4200$, I thought it was a good deal has its basically new.
I rearly pay more than 60% of the cost of new, and for well used stuff it drops to about 25%.
Over the years Ive come out on top buying, allot of the equoptment I have I could sell and make a little money on it.
