That seems pretty cheap doesn't it?  One just like that in Roanoke, IN and I pass twice a day going to work and home. Been there for more than year, setting out front. I bet They have big price on it. Always say I'm gonna stop in and ask. The drive to the place is kinda hard to get to, it is off a big highway and not right in front of place.  Someday I'll look.

I am thinking it is a scam...... way cheap......bring cash and trailer, the law..to make sure its not stolen.

If it is the model I think it is, front wheel assist, and diesel. 12000- 16000 used average.

Looks like a scam to me. In my area they are normally priced in the 9-10k range. Personally for 10k I'd go out and find a decent used full size one before getting a mini one.

It is definitely a scam.  The same ad showed up a couple of weeks ago with the same grainy picture.  I cut and pasted the description and it matched about 20 cities around the country on Craigslist.  Apparently they are pulling the "got to sell it now, send me money and I will hold it", or some crap like that.  I, like some of us nuts, love Craigslist and hate the BS.  Flagging and removing is another one of my hobbies.  The thing I have noticed, no matter what they are selling, is they love weird numbers like $2508, $3502 etc.  Most of this junk is originated overseas, thus the stupid ads and illogical numbering.  If ever in doubt, just cut and past the exact title, Google it, and when you see it match a bunch of other Craigslist cities, SCAM.

Smells fishy. Another one of those too good to be true ads. They pop up all over the place.

That price is about 10% of what one of those cost new.

This will give you an idea of what the used ones are really selling for.



And here you can price out a new one.



I would like to have one, but have yet to see on in iowa.

Kenny you are more likely to see one of these in your area and it is very simular.  Waldon Digmaster.  Waldon is in Fairview, Ok.

I thought that little payloader Don Campbell posted pictures of was cool and stumbled onto this one looking for more information.
