    Traderonline.com is a good place to start. Also consider calling larger landscaping firms in the area and ask them if they are selling anything. Some times you can get a good deal other times you are buying equipment thats at the end of its life.

    Go to your grocery store or anywhere that offers free publications and see what they have. I have found lots of good deals this way.

    That is a good place to look and I have bought stuff off there from other members and it all worked out well. The only down side is that about 90% of what I see listed the guys just want too much for it it plain and simple. A perfect example is a guy had a used trailer on there the other day that he wanted $850 for and I can buy that exact trailer locally here Brand New for $790 out the door.

    Check the trading times and local newspaper the closer to sping the more stuff there is for sale.Some of the dealers may even sell some used stuff, one of them around here does at least.
