i don't know if the machine would sell for $340 even if it was in nearly new condition. there is a toro 824 that someone has had listed for the last 17 weeks for $100 and it still for sale. you can ask whatever you want for a machine but realistically they only sell for what people feel they are worth.

I could see a machine going for money like that if it was before a big snowstorm. Truthfully, anything that is that cheap or free, is worth getting. If you cannot get it running, most times you can part them out, or trade parts with other craz---- i mean members of the forum.
