i know he has a nice chipper for a tuber i was thinking about buying. what else does he have?


Yeah that chipper has been listed a while now on ebay... He originally wanted around $550 then the price was at $495 for a long time. I got him to drop it $100 to $395 LOL. (still to high IMO)

I dont know about looking around in the yard....never asked....my guess is probably not...i will ask the next time i go, i can tell you he has a HUGE junkyard with many...many tractors and attachments, when you drive in his gate, there are bolens snowblowers, rototillers and stuff all around on the end, i can only imagine what else he has...I know its not like how it used to be when the old man had it yet. He must do nothing but ebay because, he has maybe 1 or 2 brand new toro zero turns in there and thats it, I remember going in and seeing a full showroom. I truly believe Joel( Owner of Rays ) is addicted to EBAY!!!!



Large frame or ridemster stuff any? odd/rare stuff?

All things are expensive from him, no offense to anyone who likes rays but its nothing but a money thing with him, top dollar for everything.....thats why even with my 800 that im getting engine parts and stuff for, I will only go to him as a last resort....couple years ago I went to him about a mustang he had for sale....v8 4.6 5 speed looked very dull looking, he wanted 3500 for this thing and the car was in a front end collision and had dummy airbags in(no airbags just empty covers) and i tried to talk him down to 2500 no take, 3000 no take, the car had 150k+ miles on it too, lol, like i said no offense but he is very greedy

I know what you mean :wallbanging:

I had no choice but to get rubber front wheel caps for my 800 and he charged me $10 each
