    I love auctions. Is there a good search engine to find lawn care equipment being auctioned?
     
  2. Enter "Auction" in the search on the top of you windows screen, where the www goes.

    My experience with auctions is that people are willing to pay nearly as much for something warn out as it costs new.
    In some cases, more.

    I usually go to at least 4 or 5 a month, I buy spare equipment or things I want to try out. You only have to bid if you want to.

    went to my first auction last week. items were going for 10% of market price. equipment, plants, tools. good opportunity if you can repair things yourself.

    There used to be a big outdoor power equip. connsignment auction in Omaha NE each spring (feb or march I think). I haven't heard of any in 2001 or any coming up though. I like actions to and I'm only 100 miles from Omaha so this would be a good one for me. Hope they have it again.
