I was grazing through Craigslist, and found this ad:

 

http://baltimore.cra...5167958368.html

 

As I first glanced at the pic I said to myself, "Self, that looks familiar".

 

I looked a bit closer and Self replied, "I do believe you are correct.  In fact, I think he's trying to sell OUR EK 7!".

 

 

He's using one of the pics I took of it just after I got the front reel mower attachment. Here's the full series of pics I took that day

100_4694.JPG 100_4693.JPG 100_4692.JPG 100_4691.JPG

 

Sometime ya just gotta wonder :(  :(  :(

Well, he certainly is pretty clueless about EKs.  That mower is only 30".

 

As for "Some new parts", I guess that would be right if you consider a new belt and air filter.

 

Sent him a text asking him to call me :D :D :D :D

It definitely is the same picture, right down to the missing cross links in the chains at the 11:00 position on the R R wheel.

Called, left a message and he called back.

 

He said that he just looked around the net to find one like his.

 

I told him that I wanted to see that as pulled or I would report it, as it's deceptive.

 

Told him I wouldn't have had a issue if he would have stated in the ad that the tractor pictured wasn't his but it looked like what he has.

 

He's supposed to be sending actual pics of his.

 

Said he'll pull it and relist with his pics.

 

We will see.

I flag ads all the time with my pictures in them. Strange that someone would do that vs taking an accurate photo of whats for sale.
