St824 924082, good deal?

I am in the market for a used Ariens this summer. Guy is selling a Ariens ST824 24". Said no real issues, has been serviced he just updated to larger and newer one. From picture it looks pretty clean. Is asking $250. This is in Southeast PA. Or should I wait for a better deal to come up, have all summer...


Model: 924082
Serial: 031259

Thanks!

I agree..
good machine and good price. In the Philly area in November, there will be a lot worse available for $350.
If everything works and appears in solid condition, I would grab it now.
Its a mid 1990's machine, about 25 years old. (I have a 50 year old Ariens that is still my main working machine)

Fair price, any cheaper it would be cheap, more money it would still be fair. $250 is on the lower side of fair, $150 would even be better this time of year.

1995 Murray Craftsman 10hp, 29" w. 12" impeller

Appreciate the responses. We agreed on $225 so I will go check it out, I'm new to the snowblowing world so anything I should look for when I go?


Thanks again.

Thanks again.
really depends.....I don't care how good it looks. check out that video 10 TIMES by donyboy73 before checking it out and give it a thorough inspection and testing. ASK questions. last time serviced ? issues that were repaired? talk to owner to get a sense on whether they are honest or not. walk away and wait for a good deal if your gut tells you too. any red flags? WALK.

or else you'll back here asking questions about fixing it and crying about how you got screwed.

$225 may be a HORRIBLE deal if you have to spend money on parts and labor to make it ready for next winter.

live and learn.
