Tear up a perfectly good yard vac? I dont use this one and can't get anything by selling it. Seems people dont want them any more. It works fine but I need a bigger yard trailer and this would be perfect. I could take the top ave the motor / blower off.

Just bring it up here and sell it. It's worth its weight in gold.

I sure would like to have one like that. I could pick up a lot of pine needles.

That is a great looking vaccuum.  I'd love to have it.  Too bad you are so far away.  I's leave it whole and try to sell it on ebay or something like that where you could reach out a little further.  Large yard carts are a plus.

First....this isn't the time to be trying to sell something like that. There really won't be a market for those until after "Spring has sprung".

 

Second...what are you asking for it?

 

In my area, almost new ones are going in the $800.00 range.  Older units are usually in the $400.00 range.

I've ask as low as 300$ and even tried to sell it last summer. I may try it again in a couple months. I may hall it to a plow day.

Same here,I hit a lot of auctions and the least I've seen one go for is near the $500 mark.

 

If you were to convert it to cart duty how hard would it be to convert it back to vacuum duty if you did decide to sell it?

It wouldn't be hard but it would beat the cart up.

Hmm, it is yours and you can do what you want with it.  But next fall there will be people who would kill to have that to clean up their mountains of leaves.

I wish I had it on my place to pick up the 1/2 acre I harvest the grass off of for gardem mulch. It would save a lot of time spent with a manure fork!
