Stihl combi unit

I have been offered a Sthil KM 85 R Engine unit, Hedge cutter, strimmer, pole saw and extension. it is 2 years old and has had little use, maybe been used 30 times, it looks in very good condition. my mate wants 500 for the lot, does this seem about right?. And no. it aint stolen.

Re: Stihl combi unit

The KM85R is a 2007 model, 395 plus vat in the 2007 catalogue.

The rest is 450 ish without vat at 2007 prices, so quite a bit more now.

If he was vat registered and got a trade discount of 20% when he bought it then he's doing well to sell it at 500 now, but you would be getting a bargain too though I think.

Cheers Rupe, he aint VAT reg. my strimmer broke on friday, and my long hedge cutters are on the way out so it seems like a good deal.

Its a good tool. I've got the same but the KM85R engine unit is only used occasionally now, I got the fourmix one last year.
