Other than ebay, I have never participated in an auction. However, when I saw that a local auction included two Sunstars, I started participating!

One of the units had a snowblower and cab. That unit sold for $1150. (my highest bid was $850).

The second unit came with a Johnny Bucket Jr, a newer "48 snow blade and a "60 mower deck. I won it for $675. It runs like a top. I could tell that the previous owner (who passed away - the reason for the auction) took really good care of it.

As you can see in the pictures, it also has a newer seat with armrests. There is an amber flashing LED light mounted to the front. There are also four lights mounted on the rear, but I haven't found out how to turn those on yet.

You can also see the AG tires all around. The wheels have weights and there is a large round slab of steel mounted on the back for more rear ballast.

It also came with original "Operator's Manual" and a "Do-it-Yourself Service Manual"  (I already have a copy of the service manual that I downloaded from this site)

I am most excited about the Johnny Bucket Jr..

Sounds/looks like a pretty good buy. I love the local auction market. Especially the consignment sales. I drag home lots of what everyone else wants to get rid of. Not much for local auctions here the last year though ....

Pretty nice shape, not a bad deal at all.  20 horse with the associated goodies, and the Johnny bucket and deck alone are worth the buying price.  dOd

I have to say, I am extremely pleased with this Sunstar and Johnny Bucket Jr. I use it at work. Saves a lot of work!
