    is the fuel tank clear or that dulled, hard to see thru color? are the plastics shiny and scratch free (with-in reason), all of the tubing there? no duct tape?

    offer 300 and work your way up, probably worth 350 if it's in good shape. also make sure it has had the muffler recall if it needed it.

    Get it new the warranty wont transfer over not that you will really need it the 7001 is a great blower. But I would rather by it from a local dealer who can fix it if it really needs it.

    they had a blower recall on the 7001's for the muffler splitting open on the bottom seam and hot exhaust was blowing down on the top of the fuel tank. dealers are replacing mufflers. some other blower had this recall recently too.

    The muffler recall was more than a year ago.

    If it's in real nice shape, then yes it is worth $300-350. They are great machines. I got one new for $425. Even that was a great deal.

    um, i had my recall done this spring... it's not when they did the recall, it's when it was built.

    I dont like to buy used. People sell things for a reason.
