Looks like a typical scam ad. 1/2 or less than the typical selling price.

yeah its probably a scam, these things are usually up in alaska, or nwt, but can you take the chance? i saw an ad for a kubota 3cyl deisel with 60 inch mid mount mower $500 the ad had been up 2 days i texted him, he called back, was moving overseas needed it gone asap. he was surprized that no one called, i drove 1hr to it and brought it home, he was original owner, had all service records, manuals and bill of sale, and yes i am still grinning every time i tell this

That picture and scam has been around almost 2 years, I would have thought everyone had already seen it. They also have one with a red tractor and a orange Kubota, same scam.

When you contact them, they have to be out of town for a few days or something similar.  But if you wire them some money, at least enough to hold it for you.........
