    I closed down my parking lot maintenance business 2 years ago and have been trying to sell my Karcher KM 100R sweeper ever since here in Alberta, Canada. It only has 130 hours on it!

    I have tried the Trader magazines etc. but have had no luck. Can anyone suggest how I might be able to sell this machine anywhere in North America?

    Thanks

    How Much?

    How much do you want for it (in US$)? Could it be shipped to the southeastern US?

    Karcher

    Have you tried contacting Karcher Canada? www.karcher.ca -They might be able to put it over their network of dealers.

    Why did you get out of cleaning parking lots?

    I am looking for CAD $10,000 which is around US$8500. I guess it can be shipped anywhere in north America but I would have to get a quote.

    I have made contact with the 2 Karcher dealerships here in Calgary and neither are interested in helping. I contacted the Karcher rep 2 years ago when I quit the business and he wouldn't return my phone calls. Maybe I should try again.

    I quit the business because of a change in personal circumstances involving my family.

    Thanks for the response. I've just purchased two tennant sweepers, the 3640 walkbehind and an older model, the 365.

    Thanks again and good luck. Hope you sell it. :)

    I'm still trying to sell this machine. Is there anyone in Alberta, BC or Saskatchewan who can give me any Ideas of where to advertise this?

    I would appreciate any help.

    Thanks

    Try golf courses. They use them to keep lots and pathways tidy.
    Is your municipality interested?
    Some shopping malls have their own mall property crews. They may be interested and so may property maintenance companies or landscaping companies.

    I am still interested in adding it to my equip,but I haven't found the right job mix fit for it yet.

    Good Luck

    :cry:
    We originally bought a Karcher sweeper as well, a walk behind one before we went all Tennant machines. A hard sell that one is. We use ours for our shop only now... :cry:

    Good luck. Hope you find a buyer for it.

    If you listed it at CPA, isn't that an unreserved public auction?

    I took it for granted it had to sell... did I miss something?

    Anyways, how much did it fetch at the sale... and congrats on selling it, seems by your posts that it was a much needed sale!

    Take care

    :)
