Market value of an Ecolawn 200

Purchased an Eco 200 spreader last year. Tried to dive right into compost apps. Did some jobs last year, did ok, but found out how critical it is to have a good, dry, consistent compost source that is local. Well, my best source from last year went out of biz this year. Best I can get is county compost and that stuff is way too wet to run through an Eco.

I MAY be looking to sale the spreader, too difficult locating and moving around compost. What do yall think is a good market value for a little used machine, 1 yr old, maybe 15-20 hours on it? Absolutely nothing wrong with it. Paid just over $6K new.

I posted earlier this year what they went for at auction this spring and we're bought by golf course guys. Guessing your going to eat close to half of it or sit on it.

I think wenzolo guy from mn on here might be interested in it. I would be if the price was right. But I know you enough that your going to hold the price high and wait.

I'd be interested if the price was right but I feel that the price is will be high for what it is and it's limits are. Seeing how I've been hearing it doesn't handle material all that well and I don't know of a good source around here yet.

Also, I don't know if I could drum up enough business to pay for it. Hard to market for it; people don't seem interested in things outside the normal services (mowing, fert, aeration).

All that being said, as far as price, I'd pay no more than about 3 for it.

You sound like you are in the same boat I was. If you don't have a quality material source, you don't have much. And I love what topdressing does for lawns too.....but there are just some elements of the service that are tough to overcome.
