Buying Used From a Dealer

I came across this Used Craftsman Blower at one of our 2 local dealers today for $600. Likely a trade-in so the asking price is set for them to make a little money. Anyone know what model this is, see image. 1st image is a mistake cropped to much.

This is my opinion only but it wasn't worth $600 when it was new. The very most I'd ever consider for a blower like that would be $200 and I was in a desperate situation. They just aren't worth it and you can get a nice Toro or Ariens for that amount.

That dealer has a bridge to sell you...lol. That is Canadian dollars, but still way overpriced at $450. USD. I would be surprised if he gave the owner $100. Canadian for that machine. I would offer him a little more than 1/2 that asking price if you are interested, if not put that money towards a newer and better machine.

All the best.

Yep, they are asking triple what it's worth..
this old Craftsman isn't worth a dime over $200..
realistically: $150, because its a small low-end Craftsman.

I would walk away from this, and never do business with this dealer ever again..

Updated and converted from US to Canadian dollars:

Yep, they are asking over double what it's worth..
this old Craftsman isn't worth a dime over $270 (Canadian)
realistically: $200, (Canadian) because its a small low-end Craftsman.
