    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.

    Put them on Ebay. Start at a penny bidding with $50 s/h!
