Fair price for my used Craftsman equipment?

I am in the process of upgrading my handheld power equipment, specifically, my blower and my trimmer. I've already replaced my blower with a Shindaiwa EB-8510RT and will buy a Shindaiwa trimmer also. The Shin blower is definitely overkill, but thanks to this site I decided to go commercial!

What would be a fair price for the following equipment?

Craftsman blower - purchased in 1996, 175mph, 320cfm, works fine cranks fairly easy for a Craftsman!

Craftsman trimmer- purchased in 1997, 33cc with curved shaft, works fine, but is a ***** to crank! Runs great when it's warm!

Thanks! Love this site!

I would say Keep em! They will be worth more to you as backups than you can get $ wise!

Just throw them in the trash now. Craftsman 2-strokes aren't worth s***!! They are a royal pain to work on, you usually have to near about disassemble the whole thing to get to what you need. Crank cord is an extreme pain to redo.
