    Hey I posted earlier and the guy was asking $2000 for his lawn trailer he has now lowered it to $1500 but I think I can get it from him for $1300. If I can will it be worth it? Here are the Specs and everything runs:
    2005 5x10 Lawn trailer
    32" Exmark walk-behind 11hp w/ Honda motor
    22" Troy-bilt 6.5hp self-propelled w/ bagger
    Back pack blower
    Shindaiwa Stick Edger
    Shindaiwa String Trimmer
    McCulloch 30" single sided gas hedge clippers
    Gas cans & miscellaneous

    15 sounds like a pretty decent deal. If he comes down to around 12-13, you really can't get hurt.

    2005 5x10 Lawn trailer 5-600
    32" Exmark walk-behind 11hp w/ Honda motor 500
    22" Troy-bilt 6.5hp self-propelled w/ bagger 200
    Back pack blower 100
    Shindaiwa Stick Edger 100
    Shindaiwa String Trimmer 100.
    McCulloch 30" single sided gas hedge clippers 50. (high end)

    Here is how I would look at it:
    Trailer 5x10 $550 (new)
    36" Walk-behind $2000 (new)
    22" Push Mower Waist of time and money
    Backpack Blower $350
    Trimmer w/ edgit $250
    Edge Trimmers $200
    Misc $50

    Total $3,400 (new)

    If I started over, I would get the above w/ the Quick36 for my main mower. When I had enough money I would add a 52" Wright Stander. Everything will fit on a compact 5x10 trailer which I can keep in my garage.
