    Found one for sale here locally. I stopped and looked at it and it is very clean, has a 5 hp briggs motor, and I called about it and the guy sounded older than the hills, so I'm assuming it was just used around his house, not commercially. Thanks for input :)

    Hell yeah.... Those things go for $1400 to $2200 dollars. That's a good price. :cool2:

    Thank you :) I was thinking that it was alright, someone else told me they ran about $1000.00 or so. I'll stop back and see if I can talk to the guy, make sure it runs good and such. Thank you again.

    I bought my parker thatch-o-matic from a guy for $350. I then had a friend in the rental business that gave me all of his extra parts he had for his machines when he bought new ones. So I got all three types of reels for my machine.

    That sucker made me a lot of payup I have put a lot into it. Those damn spring tines are expensive. ARGH!!!
