A what can I get thread=Shindy BP blower price

I hate these threads but give me a break. I have a buddy that wants to give me 200 bucks for a SHindy EB 630. I paid 495 in 2001 and it is a used piece of equipment. The straps are tearing, the far tube is a little beat. Overall it blows ok but I want a Redmax. Bottom line I am thinking of putting it up "as is" on e-bay or even here and starting at 225 bucks. WHat do you guys think?
And once again, sorry for the noob like post but I need input.

It's more than paid for itself..........

I say take the $200. $25 difference is not worth the hassle of ebay and/or shipping.

Don't Be Greedy

From your description $200.00 is a fair price or better. Take it. Don't be greedy.

Like Tom said, it's not worth the hassles to box and ship things like that. I know, we did it a few years ago when cleaning out back up equipment. I put it all on eBay, and it all sold, but boxing and packing all that crap(bp's, edgers,and trimmers) to take to UPS really sucked. take the 200.00 It has probably made you ten - twenty times as much since new

Thanks for the replys gents. I was thinking on the same lines but the thought of e-bay was not really to make more bucks as much as the friend selling friend thing can sometimes be a bad thing. I know its a decent blower but I always think that I sell it to a friend and 2 weeks later it blows up. I think it will give him good service for his needs (noncommercial) but I can't guarantee it. I did tell him these concerns up front and he is good with it. Friendship is worth more than the money so if it isn't right I will just take it back from him.
Once again, thanks to all.
