    My neighborhood had a block party the other day. I ran into a fellow LCO that I used to hang out with when we were teens. We got to talking and he showed me one of his Little Wonders that he was selling. 10hp, about 4 or 5 years old, had been sitting in his garage for a while. He poured a little gas in and it cranked on the 3rd pull and blew like a hurricane. He sold it to me for $300 !!!
    He has another for sale. Much newer and super clean. Looks nearly brand new. Honda engine and all. 9hp. He wants $700 for it.
    He is trying to down-size a little bit. So he is getting rid of everything but the necessities.

    HellifIknow. But he bought it new and he is a solo operation. He used to have the contract for some banks and he mainly used it on those. So I would imagine the hours on it are nothing outrageous.

    Dude your funny. How many hours. Have you ever seen an hour meter on a LW blower. Plus how would you get that thing to you. You might as well buy one new and save money that way
