    I'm looking into buying a 11hp Trac vac loader. Its a 2002 with 40 hours on it. The seller is asking 1500 obo. What is a good price to offer him. Anyone know what these go for new. I know a 16 hp loader would be a better idea but this one is local and I don't want to spend 2500 on a new one or have an older machine break down on me.

    $ 1500.00 seems high to me. If I remember right, I paid $ 1750.00 for mine brand new. How do you know the hours, does it have a Tiny Tach or some other hour meter?

    The owner said the dealer installed an hour meter on the engine when he bought it. What would be a fair price to pay for it? 1200?

    Call a local dealer or rental house, and get a current price for this year's model.1200.00 might not be too bad...start low and go from there, whattya got to lose??
