Deal or No Deal?

Does this sound like a good deal? Don't want to give too many details, but this is what i'm looking at for $7000.00. Good thing is, is I know the equipment and know it's been taken care of.

Carry-On 6x12 Enclosed Trailer
54" Hustler Fastrack SuperDuty ZTR (300 hrs)
36" BOP (Better Outdoor Products) single hydro walk behind (300 hrs)
FC70 Stihl Stick Edger
Stihl HS 56 (most likely) hedge trimmer
and a Stihl backpack chemical sprayer

Sounds like a fair deal with the info. you have provided. If you are needing what's all included. If they are asking $7000.00 before negotiations, I'm sure you can get it for less. If your only needing or wanting the mower, not a great deal.

I alaways ask myself when buying used equiptment,,,,is it as good as money in the bank?? In otherwords could I sell fairley easy for atleast what I paid for it.

Id say its a fair deal, too bad no customers, people selling out usually have a few accounts to throw in.

I'm basically buying it from my old partner. I moved away about 2 years ago and then he moved back home, in hopes of getting started in his hometown, but never has.

Jason. Is the trailer in good shape? Not sure what "carry on" means? Seems that would be majority of price. Then again the hustler has low hours

I figure 5000-5500 is what its worth. 3k for hustler. 500 for quick. 1500 for the trailer. Few hundred for handhelds.
