    What is the most common method used to figure out the value of used equipment?
    I guess the biggest items in question are:

    99' Bunton 60"
    00' Bunton 60"
    01' Bunton 60"
    Redmax trimmers 1-2 seasons old
    Redmax blowers 1-3 seasons old
    1998 16ft. Enclosed Trailer
    94' Gravely 36" still in very good shape for it's age

    Anyone have any ideas?

    I'd say that Gravely 36" is worth about $200,
    do you want me to send you a check, or would you like cash for it??? :D

    Sorry to be a smart arse, but I apologize I have no idea on depreciation. I would be interested in purchase maybe, depending on the price of that 36".

    Good luck.
