    I am NOT selling this, but if you were to buy a used push blower, how much would you give for this one? Its mine, and I am trying to make ends meet, and im trying to figure out the value of some equipment, and how much it could go for if I sold it.


    Obviously its a Giant VAC. Its a 8HP Big Block Briggs and Stratton Engine which had the entire carb assembly rebuilt, and Rebuilt (and cleaned inside and out) the rest of the engine. It also

    I would not pay more than $500 for it. Just my thought. I bought a Giant vac with a 5hp Briggs on it a year ago for $350. It's not the strongest blower but gets the job done

    although i think 300$ is a little low w/out having tried it out, i would guess 3-500$. if i were buying it off ebay...3 - 350$.

    Are you serious 300 for that ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. you start paying that much for that old machine and your a fool. if you were desperate maybe a 125-145 at the max. I bought one of those with a 5 hp engine in just as good conditon for $50 2 years ago. Spend the extra money and buy a little wonder new or used.

    What do you mean you're trying to make ends meet? You're only 17 for cryin' out loud. Stop spending so much time painting your equipment and go find jobs to put the equipment to good use! ;)

    dude, i do have accounts, but in order to have better machines, you gotta sell your old stuff first. And i believe if an older machine is in good shape, its more likely to sell. and thankyou very much, but that engine is practically 1 year old.
