Are these good prices on used aerators?

    The tow behind is a great deal for under $300. I would pay near $400. Of course I don't know what a new one goes for. Those tow behinds have very little that can go wrong.

    The Cushman however obviously needs some work. For $500 it is not that bad. If you are SURE you can fix it to really good condition for under a couple hundred then you should feel good about it. Good luck.

    Thanks for the comment. I am seriously considering buying these because they are allot cheaper than what people are asking locally.

    Does anyone have anymore advice as to whether or not these are good prices?

    I have the same pull behind Bluebird towable...bought it about the same time too (97) or so. New is was around $1100 if I remember and I still use it today. It pulls a pretty decent plug with the water contrainers.

    BTW, don't use water. Use sand instead cause it's heavier and you don't have to worry about freezing.

    Good Advice, I never thought about sand. I will have to try that. What do you think a good max price would be for that?
