    I found good used scag wb belt drives for 500 and hydros for 900. good blowers for 150 and trimmers for 100. of course prices are going to vary and sometimes searching for deals is the key. Check out creiglist

    If you want GOOD stuff it will probably cost you a little more than the okay stuff (but there are some good deals out there on some good stuff, you just have to look). I would say definately under $1800.
