Last night I purchased a Snapper 1855 for $750!!!! It has the 54" mower deck, 48" roto tiller, and a 48" snow thrower. The hour meter reads 900 hrs (don't know if it works). Has a newer onan 20 hp engine, which needs at least a good carb. cleaning and tune up. Heck it even has a cab on it. The top, front, and rear are hard. Someone took the time to make the doors out of plywood and plexiglass, assume it had soft doors originally. Even has a wiper blade that you operate manually with a little lever above the windshield.
The whole unit seems to be in pretty good shape. Looks to have been mostly used for blowing snow. The guy I bought it from had new joints put on the blower shaft last winter.
What would you guys say this set up would be worth?

Value will depend on a lot of factors, but you can bet that it's worth a lot more than you paid.

I'd say it's worth enough that you could get 10 to 20 yrs for "Grand Theft Tractor"! What a SMOKIN Deal!!
