    I got a chance to buy a snow blower a 28" Ariens 9HP but its 7 years old.

    The guy said he paid $2200 for it and only used it on his own property. He lives in a very ritzy part of town to I should mention. He's moving to BC and wont need it there.

    He wants $1000 bucks for it but even though I need a back up blower and like to jump on good deals the fact that's is 7 years old kinda put me off.

    Any thoughts on this?

    I think your right. price seems kind of high for the age. Nice neighborhood does not always mean well cared for:drinkup:

    Mostly checkout dealer support. You will need parts and service at the worst possible times. If he had got it from some big box store and there is no supporting dealership I'd pass on the deal.
