Fair Price? Toro Power Max 828LXE

In anticipation of tonight's snow, I am considering a purchase! Above machine for $450 - supposedly "barely used and well maintained." Does that seem about right for a machine that must be at least 10 years or more old (only made that model from 2005-2007)

Looks pretty clean from the pictures. Just concerned about the age.

A quick search on CL (via Searchtempest) shows that model and similar models all going in the $550 - 450 range. So the price is in the ballpark . . . just a matter of the actual condition of the machine.

8 hp and a 28 inch swath is nice. It looks clean with not much paint loss so it probably saw minimal action. Not a give away price but not a bad price either. If it works and you want to blow snow tomorrow do it.



Just clicked on link again - his price went UP!

Some folks here have indicated that these machines can go for a long time (think someone said 25 years!) I'm sick of dealing with a machine that is undersized and underpowered. Hopefully this can fill the bill.

Toros can go for 25+ years with proper maintenance, looks like he raised the price for the storm!
