good deal?

i was planning on getting a leaf loader next year, but i ran across one in the classifieds. its a salsco 16hp with the briggs vanguard. he wants $1595 for it, but i can prolly chew him down $200 more. its only been used for 5 weekends last year. i thought this was a good deal. what do you think? he had a rough year. hes trying to unload a ghel skid steer w/51 hrs and a dump truck

You might not want this advice but your getting it anyway.

Go on traderonline and buy a Toro 52" walkbehind with a twin kohler.

Now you have a machine the will mulch leaves and something that you can use from March thru November.

I bought one of the picture in your neck of the woods a couple of years ago for $700 with a sit down toro sulky.

To authenticate a picture one must be in the picture. How else are we to know if you did that or not. LOL

If it's in good shape take it!

Never heard of the brand though.

I have a 16hp Billy Goat & numerous BP & push blowers that hasn't been used once this year due to mulching. Spend it on a overpowered WB.

For what it's worth.I tried for 3 months to badger my brother(partner) into buying a truck loader (he wouldn't give in).Finally I put doubles on our Exmarks & am happy to say that he saved us a couple grand. I'm sure our leaves aren't as heavy as they are in CT. but we do have alot of trees here. The doubles seem to do better if there is a lot of leaves down (instead of just a lite coating) Just the opposite of what I expected. You might give it a try before spending the extra money on another piece of equipment to maintain & store.
