    2006 cargo express enclosed trailer
    07' exmark navigator 42" cut runs perfect
    toro turbo force walk behind 40" cut with catcher hardly used
    2 backpack blowers one echo one redmax
    one echo string trimmer

    The guy is asking $11,500
    Everything looks in very nice condition.
    Is this a deal or what.
    What do you think each piece is worth.
    Thanks

    dunno

    2006 cargo express enclosed trailer 2600
    07' exmark navigator 42" cut runs perfect 4500
    toro turbo force walk behind 40" cut with catcher hardly used 2000
    2 backpack blowers one echo one redmax 2@200 400
    one echo string trimmer 100
    9600

    and thats figuring best case scenarios and the trailer being a 6x10 single axle, like mint condition perfect everything
    these craigslist people seem to be selling "package deals" that arent really deals here around me....

    Not really sure of what equipment is worth in New York but I think Silverstreak is pretty dead-on. Test the water and make the guy an offer at $8500-$9000, he'll quickly let you know if you are off your rocker. Then counter a little higher and see how desparate he is to move the stuff.
    Good luck.
