They are going to go right thru it for me,,,It was a trade in
I think I finally got lucky
The only thing that I did not like was that it is a BELT DRIVE I've got a ferris belt drive w/b and it kills on your hands. I'm 37 years old I only use it 1-2 on lawns. But yes it seems like you got a good deal. Let us know how the old girl runs!!

I have a JRCO De-Thatcher and a Trac Vac for P/U I also picked up a core aerator from a rental shop for a decent price.(Barely used! I think that I was the only one that ever rented it!) The Aerator will pay for itself this season. It's a nice blue bird walk behind. Owning it will save me time on going to the rental shop, returning it, and the rental fee itself + now I won't have to worry about grouping aeration into one week or one day. I can aerate, overseed and fert in one stop!

I'll let you know if I see another for sale, I am right in Portsmouth, so it would be a short drive for you. I am looking for a reasonably priced 1 ton dump truck if you see any for sale on the side of the road for 15,000 or under. Thanks!
