Question How much would you give? for this Ariens?

Guy has posted only this pic. Says he replaced it with Quad/plow setup. Says about8 yrs old? Needs tlc. Says bucket is clean inside but when he got it shoes were worn pretty bad. Had never been flipped. Asking 250. It's 100 miles from me. Worth the drive?
THOUGHTS?

Anything under $400 is a good deal for that thing provided it runs without smoking, has no or very minimal corrosion damage, both the augers spin free with the shear pins removed, the trigger cable isn't stretched and the axle unlocks, and there is zero physical damage to the machine...

I have first shot at it since I contacted him within 10 minutes of posting. Last night we left it that I have a funeral today in the AM but I'd like to see it. Got a text message this morning asking to give him a call since "there are a ton of people emailing about it". I knew that was coming. Stay tuned....

Zero physical damage is going a bit don't you think? I mean, it's going to show some wear. For that $$ I'm expecting some minor problems.

Zero damage might be a bit much but the photo sure makes me believe it's close. Maybe they are a realtor and prone to euphemistic exaggeration.

I'd say go now so he doesn't get tempted. It sure looks like it's a nice machine and under priced.

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

I meant bent, cracked, or broken parts that need to be replaced...you're going to have to dump enough money on improvement kits (belt and cable improvement) for things that aren't broken if you want to get it working right. The dash's are prone to cracking and they are $100.

Have my fingers crossed you're on your way back now with your new blower.

SCORE !!

I like this one a lot better than that Yamaha you were looking at, for sure.
