Just wondering if anyone else has noticed this or is it something on my end?

I always search Ebay with general terms like "garden tractor" or "lawn tractor" because you would be surprised at how many people don't put the brand of the tractor or they might spell it wrong.

Well for about 2 weeks now I noticed nothing comes up If I search this way. I have to type the make of the tractor now.

If they did change things it doesn't make sense to me as to why?

This is strange, I just typed this post and went back to Ebay. For the heck of it I typed "gardentactor" and "lawntractor" and they worked!

What would cause that? Anyway it works now, so if you have had this problem that is the fix lol.

So I wonder if I was searching for one with a FEL would I have to type " gardentractorwithfrontendloaderattachment" ??? :hitting_self_roller:
