I think someone is bidding for this guy to try and get people to think this is something special.
The engine has had some hacking and it dosent even have any attachments!

I suppose it is following the antique tractor saga of "original paint is worth 10 times more than normal."

The difference between genius and stupidity is that only genius has limits. Someone bidding up for the seller is called a "schill". They are pretty easy to spot at the auctions. When they "win" the item will come up again later in the auction. I haven't been to an auction in over 25 years because they are so rigged. Is he going to have to pay the percentage to EPAY? Good Luck, Rick

There is only one bidder so far but he has bid twice.   If it sells to whoever he will have to give ebay their 10 % of the sale price plus 3% for PayPal  they use it.  I don't know why my stuff is underlined. (it's not underlined now)       :oh_shucks:

Well, at least it's original paint and has the belt guard :D

I can't believe it's been bid up that high.

Well, I just found the same tractor listed on CL up in Enola (Harrisburg), PA. asking $1200. Guess he must need to pay off his drug dealer.

The latest find in "This Has To Be A Joke Right? I know someone that just bought this same snowblower that is in better shape (NOS) for a fifth of the price.
