    This unit was part of a package deal I purchased. I'm not interested in using this pc of equipment. Here's some photo's. It was used on a Bobcat S300 The steel over the tire tracks in the back round are also for sale

    That blower looks to be in great shape! Wish the "minimum" hyd requirements weren't so high on it...I've been thinking about picking up a skid blower. Good luck w/ the sale!

    While it looks like a nice blower from the pics, I've bought 3 units (2 new, 1 not new but never used) and never paid that much. This was within a few years as I realize the price has gone up quite a bit lately.
    Maybe a dealer in the retail world will get that amount, but the $3k range and it might sell a little easier.
    I tried to sell one of mine last season and got no bites until I dropped it to $2k. Even then nobody bought it. Finally a friend bought it for $1200.

    Not sure what units your running/talking about, but the OP's unit is the biggest(size & hyd requirements) unit BC offers...If I have this correct, BC offers reg flow, high flow, and then the "higher" high flow units (sbx)???? I would imagine there is a significant price jump between (just for example) a 66in standard flow & a 84in sbx model???

    $1200 sounds CHEAP....unless it was well used, it seems you gave that away. Hope I find someone as nice as you to sell me 1.

    I thought your price sounded like a good starting point from what I've been seeing on pricing, but thought you'd end up getting about "high 3's" or 4k for it. Good for you.

    I only know what I read on the internet....which is all true right, lol.

    I'm curious to know what my local BC dealer will quote me at for a new 72in sb240 high flow. I'm thinking I may go used, if I decide on getting a snowblower for next winter...just gotta make sure its a proper match with the machine.

    I think I was lucky the gentleman that purchased the unit is content
    I accomplished my goal which was to cover my
    down payment on my purchase. It's all good
