Bait and switch

There wasn't a lot in the ad but thought I'd write and take a chance since he seems like he needs to sell before he moves. Maybe get a nice 32" for a good price.

He sends a reply with a photo of a well used Hahn 24". Guess he can't read because he didn't even have to measuare since "24" is in big black numbers right on the auger housing.

I think "Crusty lump of dung" would have been far more accurate as a description myself . . .

Worth $25 to a max of $50 to the right person otherwise it's going to sit for scrap. Few would want it so free for the taking seems reasonable.

32" high handlebars maybe?

heavy-duty would be an understatement.


I'm willing to bet that it machine spent most of it's life outside, uncovered like it is now.

regardless of its build quality, it's still a $50 machine to most buyers.

That's just cruel (but true). I did let him know kindly that if he did a search he would likely see they go for a hundred or less. Like you guys I'm thinking fifty at best. I didn't want to start a fight but thought maybe it would get him to rethink his ad and price. That and post a photo so someone else didn't waste any time asking about his $200 snowblower.

i was just kidding but i would tell him it's basically a parts machine for about 50 bucks. not familiar with this brand but i am assuming he thinks it will be scarfed up because it is winter.

have a little patience and wait until spring or summer. blowers will be had real cheap or even free. advertise on CL for free hauling to the dump blowers , generators, lawn mowers , and such. you'll be able to pick and choose what you want.
