I don't think anyone will actually want to buy this, but the pics and description are hilarious.

Ah if only I was closer.

 

For those who may miss it, it is such a good deal :D  :dancingbanana:  it will sell instantly:

Price was $9,500, but this weekend only you can take this beauty home for a paltry $100. Yes, that is a $9,400 savings! I was going to put a lift kit, glass pack exhaust, chrome rims and racing stripes on her but I lost interest. This is a multi-purpose machine... It has new 42" blades spinning underneath that shreds grass, sticks, small cats, etc... It also can pull things such as carts, small trailers or amish buggies. Other uses could include:

1. Boat anchor
2. Nice corner table for living room
3. Centerpiece for your flower garden
4. Pulling in tractor pulls
5. Start your own wrecker service
6. Drive to liquor store
7. Nice prop for senior pictures
8. Excellent prom night vehicle
9. Put on blocks in front yard to bring up property value

If you buy this weekend, I will also throw in a new "What the hell, it runs" bumper sticker! This will surely make you the envy of the neighborhood. This mower is fully loaded, including options like:

Cruise Control with choke
Steel blade engagement arm (pops out sometimes, vise-grips I am currently using to hold in place thrown in for extra $100)
Foot operated clutch
Vinyl seat
Fully pneumatic tires with stems/caps
Gas shut-off valve (I installed this additional option myself because the carb was flooding after it was shut off -with my labor included, I estimate this to add an extra $250 value to the machine)
8-speed Manual transmission with reverse
Electric start
Battery with 8 acid compartments and two posts (1 positive and 1 negative)

I hate to brag too much about this fine piece of craftsmanship, as I believe the pictures will sell her... If you do not have $100 but just want your picture taken on her, that will be $5 for a 3 X 5.

Her name is Molly, and she has no cover or lights so she prefers to be out only in the daytime and when it is warm.
She does have a nice running 17.5 hp B&S motor, 42" cut with newer blades, but will need a battery.

Email if interested please! Price is negotiable if you don't think I am asking enough...

He's running for best of Craigslist, no doubt.  A lot of effort to move a mower! 

 

I'll be gone today, I'm running over to his neck of the woods and get my 3x5 picture for $5 with the tractor.  It will look great framed out in my shop.

I'd be a bit worried about finding a replacement 16 volt battery, when that one fails. :D

Next to last line he states that it needs a battery. I wondered where you got one with 8 cells too.

I don't think he was ever a car salesman, he has to much humor and it is well written. Got to hand it to the kid, well done, I hope he sell it.

That is one of the funniest Ads I've ever read. The picture of him on it tells a lot about him. He may have been on the second 6 pack when he wrote the Ad.. :D
