    Does the motor run on the Air Flo? Are you sure it's a 5HP? 8HP is more common. I doubt it is a 10' unit, but it makes a big difference in price if it is. How is the drag chain on the spreader? Is it locked up? Does the spinner move freely?

    How is the cutting edge on the plow? Is the plow rusty? Does it come with a vehicle mount and wiring harness? All of these questions make a big difference in price. If both the plow and spreader are about 5 years old, considering you don't get THAT much snow there, I would guess between $1000 - $2000+ for both units combined would be a good price. I know, a broad range, but hard to say sight unseen. If both look brand new (so to speak) and the plow comes with a vehicle harness that YOU can use, and a vehicle mount YOU can use, then maybe even as much as $2500 for both. Then again, the guy may be looking for $1500 for the salter alone....

    thanks for the help the spreader is a little rusty but not where it has holes eaten into it or anything just surface rust an the drag chain is brand new cause this past year when he went to get salt the salt company had rock in there salt an the rocks busted the chain so they bought a new chain for the unit an some other odds an ends . the plow has all the wiring an mount an its in great shape . he wants 1500 for it all but i am gonna offer him 1000 either he takes it or i can live without it!! thanks again chuck

    Sounds like the deal of the week to me. Most Meyers and Western in this part of the county sell for around $1500. (good to better shape) If you can use it, then do it. For that money and a spreader too! :D

    One thing for sure even if you have to spend a little money on eather peace you still can't go wrong. With all the ice Norther Ky had this past year you will love a v box over the tailgate spreader.
