What's the Most or Least you ever paid for a $nowblower

I buy gently used ones and the most I paid was $1,500 for a 2010 Arien 1332 Pro with key start in 2012. I try to buy them April thru September.

1983 John Deere 1032 $50, I bought February 2016 then no snow 2017, needed carb cleaning then bolts tighten and such small stuff

1986 Ariens ST522 $75, bought around 2005, needed nothing then eventually carb, belt, and cable.

The most expensive was a used Gravely Convertible 12hp cast iron Kohler engine that came with a mower deck, brush hog, broom, sulky, and a steering sulky. I probably paid $3,000 with grass cutting jobs, maybe $1,500 or $2,000 in 1978.

1995 Murray Craftsman 10hp, 29" w. 12" impeller
A 1983 Real John Deere 10hp, 32" w. 12" impeller, 16" auger, 20" high front, cast iron gear box, chains
Noma 9hp, 27" w. 12" impeller

I get blowers for $100 down to free......I can't make a nickel if I pay more....the exception was a 924 Ariens with the 32 in old style bucket and cast iron gearbox....it was kind of hacked up with a Honda gas tank and no snow shield, I gave $150 for that one.

$$$ The new Honda HSS

Free. My 7010 yardbird. Lasted many years!

Here is a pic of the same one not mine that just popped up for sale locally. I have no place to keep it inside or I would grab it in a second.

Many free ones but the most would be Honda's in general. Just paid 350 for an hs928ta carb cleaned plus 50 in parts and out the door. Ill pay the price for a decent one they sell fast around here and fetch good money.

74 Ariens 832
8? FMC Bolens 824
02 White 4x4 Snow Boss
90 Lawn Boy ST320
88 Honda 300FW w/plow
