I am a homeowner and last year I bought a 48" Exmark Metro. I have 2 acres in Gaithersburg, MD. For a number of reasons I'm looking to sell my Exmark. It's been through 2 mowing seasons doing my yeard alone, so it probably has about 80 hours on it. But, instead of selling it outright I thought I'd throw out a couple of options/questions to this group for advice. One idea I had was instead of selling the Metro for cash, was to work a business arrangement with an LCO in the Gaithersburg, MD area where I provide the Metro for an agreed upon set of lawncare services. For example, 1 year of mowing, trimming, mulching. I haven't worked out the numbers to see what would be worth it, but I certainly see some risk because I'd be handing over my mower and trusting that an LCO would provide the services as promised...it may be more risk than is worth it. BUT...for the right situation, if it's maybe someone just starting out that could really use the mower but is short on cash/credit, they may be willing to work out a deal that would benefit us both. Anyone ever entered into a similar arrangement? If so how did it work out? Also....assuming I just sell the mower, when is the best time of year to sell it to get the best price? ...and is ebay the best place to sell? ...or is there a better place?
