I have a little bit different perspective on this:

 

He's told you that he'll part with the blower for $200.  His cards (at least the opening ones) are on the table.  He doesn't know if you'll drag it off even if he gives it away and you're asking him to move on his price.  There are lots of people who will negotiate with no intention of buying and wasting the sellers time.

 

If you really want the blower and there is a price that will make you take it lead with that.  Have the cash in hand when you make the offer.

 

Now he knows you're serious and you can have a negotiation.

I told him I would go to $30.
He was at 35

The 200 was his being a smart arse.

I left the price out of my first post, just the price difference was in there. Sorry

Sorry, I lost track of the details as I read the other posts.

 

If you offered 30 and he came back at $200 then he wasn't very interested in selling.
