Default Need advise on Snap On deal

I want to get a larger Snap on bottom box. There is a guy that will trade me my black roller and $1000 for his 40th anniversary box. He says its his bottom line but I might try to get him down a few hundred. What do you think?
Here is mine and it is new

Here is a picture of his (red one)

I think you would come out slightly ahead. Your box used I think about $600 tops. That box begin 24" deep, maybe $2500 used top. I think I'm high, but not nuts on my prices. You will gain a fair amount of space. Thats just my opion, see what the other have to say.

To get a good idea on what it's worth, We'd need to know what model, overall condition and retail price is on the other box is to really get an idea on how to gauge how good a deal it is. Otherwise it's kinda guessing.

That's no bottom line; it looks like a KRL722.

I think he meant 1000 cash was his bottom line...

I would probly be better off getting the 56" HF box with the $699 coupon and not worry about selling my box

That box retails for $5600. I think he's giving you a helluva deal.

I'd get rid of the tiny box, trade for the KRL722 (if that's what it is), and if I needed more storage later, then look at buying something else.

Calculate the square inches, of yours, then his, and see how much space you are actually gaining.... Then do the same with the cubic inches.

Since they are both Snap-On it is really a numbers game of space, cost, mobility, and whether you are going to miss the lift top. Just my opinion.

If you got the cash I would jump on that quick. That trade is in your favor in my opinion.

You're wasting time. Go get that deal before he changes his mind.

Are you guys seriously telling him not to consider this? There is no comparison between these two boxs. This appears to be an older model krl722. This box is more than double the size of what you have now, and more than likely you can fit all your tools in the top two drawers.. This is a very good deal for trade plus cash on your end. As far as how much cash? Even at 1000 on your end your still getting a hell of a box you could sell and make money on, but im sure once you have it selling it would be the last thing on your mind.

The cranbery box is a $1,500 box. Yours is about a $500-600 box. Fair trade for both of you. I would do it. Your box is junk compaired to the quality of that KRL.

I'd do it if you need more space and a work space. But you lose the prybar and screwdriver holder that's built into the cart.

I think that's a fantastic deal. I'd take it. I've been looking for a 722/7022 or 1022 on and off for 8-9 months now. The last 2 722's I considered were $2500 (we were a few hundred apart) and $3500 w/SS top.

Does he own the box outright ? Are you going to run into a Snap-On dude trying to reposess "his" box in a few months ?
