I was very tempted to bid on that....serves me right for dithering.
I think I would ideally be looking at the lower price bracket. The main reason is that I can't be sure the kids will want to keep using it so, while the kids are small, it wouldn't see much use, so I'd like someone else to have taken the worst of the depreciation hit. If they take to it (or when they are bigger and I get some time back
) I'd trade up.
It does sound like I shouldn't be looking below 8HP though.
Thanks for your help so far!
