    I am wondering if I got a good deal on this Lawnaire V. The guy said it's an '06 or '07, and that he only used it for a season. It appears to be barely used. My biggest concern is the engine - 3.5 HP Briggs and Stratton. Is it under-powered?

    Help me out and suggest how much you think it is worth. That way I can see if I made out ok. Thanks.

    Idk anywhere from $500 to maybe $1800. Depends on how bad you wanted it and how bad he wanted to get rid of it. My dealer has a new one with a Honda for nearly $3,ooo, They're getting expensive!

    Most of them have a 3.5- 4hp motor which is enough power. I would say 1200-1400 would be a good deal. If it had a honda, I would pay a bit more for it.

    As far as aerators go, ryan is the best in my opinion. I have tried most of them and ryans hold up the best and are simple to run.

    I would say that if you paid more than 1700, you paid too much. But I'm not a big fan of walk behind units anymore, only small ones for the tight spots.

    I just paid $600 for that model with a new Honda on it ....no kidding but it's older than this one.
