Northstar

I have an opportunity to purchase a Northstar Pro series 8000/6600 generator with a 23 ho Honda engine. It’s around 20 years old but, still like new. Has only a couple hours on it and has been in storage that long. Still starts and runs good. It has the wheel stand but not electric start.
Does anyone have an idea what a fair price would be on the generator?

New, they're about $1500. https://www.ebay.com/itm/NorthStar-G...G7K5:rk:8:pf:0
Are you sure it's that old?

Ya, I’ve seen the new ones, was just trying to get a fair value on a used one.
Yup, I’m sure it’s that old , I know who bought it new and I know exactly where it’s been the last twenty years.

Well, if the GX is still purring and it makes power well, and the overall condition is good, I would think about 1/4 of new would be reasonable for a 20-year-old. Do you have any pictures? Does it have the wheel/handle kit?

That's worth $25, right there.

Very nice generator you have there, it doesnt look like 20yrs old by any means, shame theres no key start, as that would be the icing on the cake... Im guessing its not a inverter but its got AVR?

I haven’t posted any pics of it yet. I know nothing about generators so I don’t know if it’s inverter or AVR.

It’s dirty but, it’s been in storage for twenty years.
This was bought In preparation for Y2K. It virtually has No hours on it! Maybe half our of run time total.
