    just bought this little guy at an auction today, figured it cant hurt to have it when we need it, it should do pretty good for spring time with the sand cleanups in the parking lots we do

    He's using the auction picture,it's white and the pix was taken during a blizzard..Or maybe he ordered one and the guy didn't steal it yet, so GP couldn't post a pix of it.

    I think that's a Tennant 240 and they sell for pretty cheap. If it has low hours and good brushes you could sell it for a couple thousand.

    Wow that seems like a crazy price! Especially compared to a lawn mower...

    Think you need to put a few details on it.

    Thats a good price be sure to change all filters often, the fine dust is a killer, it will serve you well in the spring for sand detail, not the best for everyday white litter but Im sure you know that.
    Definately a good buy. Hell one job in the spring and its paid for.
