    $26,000 invested so a $9,000 depreciation in 1 1/2 seasons is not enough? Scag has 350 hrs and Toro Grandstand only has a little over 100hrs on it. From what i've researched that is a good price for the whole package.

    Don't worry about what people have to say about price. Most guys on here want to buy everything for dirt cheap

    If you have $26,000 of actual cost on the equipment you have listed, you paid far too much for it.

    If the grandstand is 8K and tt 11K that is 19K. Add a 16ft trailer 2.5K, blowers 1.1K, 2 trimmers .5K, hedger trimmers no idea but .5K, trailer add ons .5K, chute blockers mulch kit stripper .8K.

    It adds up to $25,000 with out looking up a price. Hedge trimmers and chute blockers mulch kit and stripper I'm sure I'm low.

    $17K is not a fire sale but basically asking for the mowers/trailer and throwing the rest in.
