ok so time to thin stuff down. my friend needed a camera, so im trading him my old camera for a ton of body work on the bolens plow and deck. now the deck is massive, its 60 inches and for my hilly lawn it will never work. so i figure hes gonna strip prime and paint the whole thing then im gonna sell it. any ideas what they go for in really nice condition?

I can tell you we have a deck that we went went 100% over and restored. We most likely have $1000 in it but we could never sell it at $1000 or more to get the money back.
The deck we have still looks new and has not been used yet.

Believe it or not the 1/16-1/2" $50 Cobalt set at HF will cut through hardened steel

The problem with trying to sell the big Bolens decks is that they are heavy, awkward, and BIG. As a result, most folks can only sell them locally, or maybe regionally, where the buyer can get to them without incurring shipping costs. Shipping one of them anywhere would be an expensive proposition.

If they know the value of the two in the market, probably not a straight-up trade. The 2-stage blowers go for considerably more than the 54" decks do.
