So what do you sellers have to sit on over the summer

Picked a few up with the good deals popping up, Replacing the girlfriends Toro 521 so I'll have that, A craftsman 9/29 in decent shape, A MTD 5/24 that I found a replacement engine due to the governor issue with it but will fix that up for another at some point and a toro 3521 I picked up for someone and as soon as I go through it it will get delivered and may be selling my snapper 6/22 but MAY keep it for a backup machine since it is so darn reliable. So what do you have to get ready for next season.

Daunte...I won't be grabbing all the good ones from Craigslist next year, I've got quite a few machines ready to sell. This year has been good so far for selling lawn tractors. The grass always grows, but it doesn't always snow!

Garage
we had snow flurries today so people think they can get snowstorm prices for their blowers. I'll have to wait till Memorial Day weekend yard sales to maybe get a couple good deals.

what goes around comes around

Alaska sounds like a great trip, Have my snow blowers all packed away but now I'm up to 3 wood chippers LOL One is mine that gets used a lot, One I got for $25 that needed fuel system cleaned and chipper blades sharpened and shredder blade replaced, Previous owner had no clue how to sharpen them and really made the useless LOL But now it works great and it's at the girlfriends house getting a good workout then to be sold, Then I got the third for $60 which is the exact model as the second and all I had to do was put a new pull cord and it fired right up and runs great. well need to also reseat the tires as I did on the second but that's just labor not money but already have the third sold for $150 to a co worker so that was a easy $90 profit. Trying to stay away from mowers because there are so many out there cheap in decent shape and riding mowers take up too much space that I don't have so wood chippers and yard equipment like it is my summer project. Still need to find some cheap tillers to fix up and use before I sell.

This is the $25 chipper ready to go

Absolutely nothing. I sold the last one yesterday while it was 91 degrees in RI. I let them go for cheap end of season. I was actually sold out in March but a few freebies kept coming my way.
