Pricing for used 1332 or 1336 Pro with 12v start?

I have a 2001 1128 Pro which I bought new, and it's been really good to me. With 500 feet of driveway, I'm thinking I want the same machine (especially with the 12v battery start) in a larger size, so a 1332 Pro or 1336 Pro. Not sure what the last year for battery start was, but ballpark... what should I expect to pay for such a machine, in really nice condition, if I can find one?

Those battery machines can pull a pretty penny. I would expect to pay around 800$ for one in good condition. BUT...the market for snow equipment can sway in many directions in a short amount of time, which if you play your cards right you might be able to get one for less. During a dry spell not many people are looking for snowblowers and you can do some good price negotiations.

I recently sold my 1332(120v starter, no battery) for 700$, it was a in great shape and fully serviced. Had it listed for a week(marketplace), not a single inquiry. Big storm in the forcast...evening before the storm, about 8 message within a 2 hour period. People procasinate big time

I saw a couple at $1900. A bit on the high side?

I have a 1128 Pro with 12 volt electric start,I think it’s great.
The trick is find one that was not used commercially.I figure the 12 volt option is worth $100 more than the plug in.

I just saw a Professional 36 with battery start in Tyngsboro, MA for $1875 on FB Marketplace. Better deals can be found, but this one is fairly new.

Good point about commercial use. Yeah, the 12v start is pretty handy. Not sure why they discontinued it.

Yea. Me either. I find the 120 volt basically useless, unless you have a bad shoulder, rotator cuff, or are too old or too weak to pull a crank. I'm not wasting my time pulling out an extension cord, unwinding, and winding it back up just to start my snowblower. And what do you do when your at the bottom of your 200 foot driveway or over helping a neighbor out on his driveway and you stop for a minute or run out of gas ??? Personally, I think the 120 volt is completely useless. I'll virtually never use it. I'd have preferred Ariens put this money into an LED light bar like on the Cub Cadets. Which brings up another issue with not having a battery or 12 volt starter: difficulty of adding additional lighting. With the 12 volt battery, it's simple to add accessories, such as lighting. That's one area Honda has Ariens, and most others, beat. My Honda lawnmower has 12 volt electric start. I love it. If I wanted to "plug in" my lawnmower to start it, I'd buy an electric lawnmower.
Why would the manufacturer's think going to 110 volt is better ??? Cheaper. Yes. Better. Absolutely NOT !!! Probably did it so they could reap more profits and still advertise as having "auto push button start". Because I don't see any use for it whatsoever. Give me a battery and 12 volt or give me nothing.

I saw a 1336 12v on CL the other day for $750, looked to be in decent shape but most of the way across the country from you in Colorado.

If you don't find a battery start machine, it should be fairly easy to convert one. And any of the newer Pros that are Briggs powered can also be converted to battery start even though they never came that way. I did it to my 2018 Pro 28. The jury is still out on whether the necessary parts exist for a conversion on the newest LCT powered Pro machines.
