    I am getting a new Truckmount installed in about two weeks.

    I also upgrade my older SX12 tile tool with a new Turbo.

    I am trying to figure out the best way to sell the old tile tool and my old Boxer 421.

    Does craigslist work for this?

    Where else have you seen success?

    Thanks

    I buy lots of stuff off Craigslist. I don't pay much though.

    I sold three old TMs.
    One through advertising on various CC boards. Sorry but MB'ers seem to talk a lot but do not buy much in my experience.

    And the other two were through local suppliers. Try your local supplier and posting on BBs won't hurt either.

    Give it away to a needy carpet cleaner. Think of the Karma! :cool:

    Craigslist for old beaters which it probably is. Put up an ad in all surrounding big cities.

    Price it right and it will sell fast.

    Got my WM here and a few other tools.

    I'd hang on to them for awhile though just to make sure the new stuff is working good. Nice to have a back up till you work the bugs out.

    if its a little older and it runs just keep it as a back up, idk how many hrs but in general when you sell a used TM you dont get much
