    I came across a deal on three BlueBird 20 inch power rakes. Can anyone who uses this machine give me an idea of what a used unit is worth.

    I am south of Atlanta GA and always areate and top dress a yard with a thatch problem.

    My thought was about $200.00 each as they are not nearly as expensive new as an Areator.

    I am going to buy a used 24" Exmark thatcher that was only used about 5 ties in t's life, has a 5hp Briggs which starts on first pull, and the tines were just replaced. I am going to pay $300 for it in spring but have no room to store it now.

    200.00 sounds like a great deal.
