    I may have a chance to get a 2001 Scag tiger cub 23hp 52" with 200 hrs on it and a 2004 16x7 enclosed trailer. The guy is not sure on a price yet, so I am trying to get an idea of a decent price.

    Thanks for any help!

    Ok, would $6500 sound high?

    Thanks

    trailer new should be about $4000 to 4500 unless it is really heavy duty and has electric brakes and all the add ons. Butjust price it out at a dealer then knock off at least 25%. 50% if he used it to carry fert with any frequency.

    Mower, just go to a dealer who buys used equipment and describe it to him, tell him you are thinking of selling it what would a fair price be. Or find out the price of a new one and knock off at least 40%

    If you aren't getting at least those discounts then just buy new.

    I don't know anout the trailer but for the mower i'd say $5000-$5500 would be a decent price if it has been well taken care of.
