Well spring is rapidly aproaching and im looking to add a couple pieces of equipment...i mainly look for good deals on the big stuff used but have never bought any handhelds used. Im in the market for possibly a ztr and or a stander or wb. I was browsing craigslist last night and came upon an ad for russo power equip's used sale. Looks to have a sheet load of stuff from many manufacturers and thought this may be something to attend or look more into. I am a small lco with a tight client base but have recently added about a dozen new accounts and need to expand my fleet. Russo is about 3 to 4 hours from me depending on which location i look at. The location in question is close to 4. For those of you who may have attended one of these i ask, was it worth going to? Or will i be wasting gas money to find out it is a bunch of junk? Thanks

They have a ton of used equipment. Some of it is some really nice stuff and some is not so nice. I bought a used walk behind from them 5 or 6 years ago and its still going strong. And just so you know, people line up hours in advance of the sale starting.

Funny thing I see your thread. I met the owner at a GIE Expo. Nice people, ate breakfast with him and his wife and really had a great time. He sends me his emails, his catalog etc and I did receive the one about the sale. Good luck and hope ya get a good deal!

Frank is a great guy. If there is something you want to buy before the sale just call and talk to him or jay and tell them what you are looking for.
