    I have a chance to buy an old mower, a 1968 Toro 70" Professional Reel mower to be exact. I don't really have anything to compare it to however and i'm not sure how much they go for. The guy wants 500 for it. What do ya'll think??:confused:

    Do you want it that bad?

    Do you have a need/use for it?

    How many spare $500's do you have to throw away?

    If you bought it today for $500 will you be able to guarantee that you can sell it tomorrow for $500. If you can't then it is not a good deal.

    I have no commercial use for it. I can not afford to pay $500 for a lawn ornament. I have no sentimental attachment to any old Toro mowers.

    OMG!!! Did that ever bring back some memories. I ran one of those 30 years ago working on a GC, mowing banks. Lots of maintenance to keep one of those mowing nicely.
