    I have a BOP 36 dually I might sell. I have had a a few local guys ask me if I want to sell it, but I'm not sure of the value with the current status of BOP. Mower is a 2011 with low hours in good shape. I have the grass catcher, step saver and a bunch of back up parts inlcuding belts, cables, and spindles.

    I think I paid around 4k for all of it.

    Thanks for any feedback.

    Premier, I had a 2008 fairly low hour single hydro Ninja that I sold last year. Great shape, ready to run. Paid $2500 for it, including a mulch kit and spare parts. Sold it for $1400.

    So that said, I would hope you could get $2500 out of it including all the extras. Some guys may be gunshy due to lack of parts availability. Last I knew BOP was still shipping parts out.

    I bought one last fall for $2000 with under 150 hours and the step saver, but I haggled the guy down from $2300. With spring coming, you should be able to get a decent price, I'd start at about $2700 and see what happens. If buyers are concerned about parts availability, have them look at what BOP has in spares right now. You can get spindles, clutches and hydros commercially, so if you had some spare pulleys and blade engage cable you should be good to go. I wish I had another one, but realistically don't have a need for it right now. If my apps business picks up this year, it would be nice to have one to rig up as a sprayer. Good luck.

    Thank you both for your replies. NDR, your spray idea is very interesting. How would you set that up?

    I paid 2800 for a 44" duelly brandnew from the factory.

    I bought a 36" single or "quick" like new bop for 800$.

    Their not really worth much because of the uncertanity of parts.

    Something like this:


    Also, I just got a shipment of spare pulleys from BOP today, so they're still shipping out parts very quickly if you need them.
