Pretty good shape, it looks like.  Again, tines are pretty worn though... You'd be better off buying mine :)

Paint not that great, atleast decals kinda visible, tines alittle worn, guard missing.......I'm not impressed! $850 is kinda high for one in that condition I'd think!?

Honestly, it's in better condition that most. It does still have remnants of paint and decals.  The missing guard doesn't help things.  And it would look better with that dented tail removed.  But other than that, it looks pretty solid to me.  You have to keep in mind these are every bit of 35 years old. 

 

As far as pricing...$850 with no cover is a little steep, but not completely out of line.  Things are just more expensive these days.

 

There are other options out there.  John Deere and Cub Cadet both make a 2,000 rpm Cat 0 tiller.  However, they are both significantly higher than the Massey/Snapper units.  Ones I've seen lately are going between $1,100 - $1,400!!!  Wow...

Yeah I know things aren't cheap anymore but at those prices I'll go buy a new category 1 tiller and run it on my GC2300 or 2610.......probably be smarter in the long run anyway!!!!????
