I have a chance to pick up the following equipment for my 2010 x500 and was wondering what you guys think would be a fair price for the package below.
This stuff came off of an X300. The ad doesn't mentioned the mount but I have sent an email to see if it's included.

44" blower (3 years old)
4 suitcase weights
Tire chains
3 sided soft weather enclosure

Note: I'm in Canada and so is the equipment so the price would definitely be higher than in the US.

Thanks for any input!

Suitcase weights have gone up. $200 CDN for the 4 wouldn't be outrageous.

Tire chains - I don't like to pay more than $35 US since I can get new from tirechains.com for $60.

Soft enclosure, they're what, $500 new from JD? Probably $250 to $300.

The 44 Blower is $1424 CDN new, if I read the JD site correctly. I'd guess at least half of new would be hard to argue with.

Does the current owner have a price in mind for all of the pieces. Have you seen all the items to see what condition they are in?

In October 2009 I pay $1.600 for the same kit new, minus 2 suitcase weight and the weather enclosure.

To depend on the overall condition but I think between $800 to $1000.

Don't forget to check the idler pulley and the main one too.

Have only seen pictures so far. He does have a price listed and I find it a bit high ($1200) for this package. I'm going to be in his area in the new year so I may stop in if he still have it and look it over.

I believe the tire chains will not fit as the x500 has bigger rear tires than the x300. Might want to factor that in.
Definitely need new chains. $90 plus taxes at Mother Deere as I know first hand.
