    How do you sell your used equipment? I take very very good care of my stuff it. All looks like new is serviced when needed. It is always kept clean and and serviced to a "T". There are only a couple other large commercial crews in my area so I doubt local advertising will do. Have any of you tried eBay or large newspaper classifieds?

    Things like Blowers, Trimmers, Edgers, even hand pruners do pretty well on eBay. I have bought and sold many of them. Mostly bought. But they seem to bring in pretty decent money on eBay. A mower, on the other hand, will probably not do as well unless someone who is fairly local sees it. And in that case, I'd do a 10 day auction.

    Try your local paper or weekly town magazine etc. I dont know if you have it but we have the WANT AD around here and you can sell just about anything in there for 5% commission max being $95. It is a free ad until you sell. Check to see if there is a similar mag in your area.
