Used Craftsman snowblower value?
Original Message   Oct 13, 2005 4:31 pm
I just picked up a 1993 Craftsman snowblower from a relative. It's a 10HP Tecumseh 29". She has no idea what it's worth, and neither do I. I want to be very fair in the price I give her for it. I don't think it's been used more than a couple of years, and hasn't run for a long time (a decade). It does turn over fine though.

It was all gummed up from old gas being left in the tank and carb. I have the carb soaking in gas as we speak.

Any help is much appreciated.

Last year in my shop I had two 1994 Sears 10hp, 29" machines, both with light kits. I went over them completely (new belts, tune up, lubrication), they were in fantastic cosmetic & running condition, and I sold them for $700 each.

Since the Sears you mentioned needs carb work (and possibly a new carb) & is a year older than my two, I would say a fair value would be between $400-$500.

A 10 year old Craftsman for 700 ? Ouch. But with the shop service, and maybe a waranty for 30-60 days, tolerable. But reguarly Ive seen similar machines here for 400 or so. www.bargainnews.com , go to the Full catagory listing, pick snowblowers, and search around. You can find everything for sale in this publication. Ive used them many times myself.
