Everything works and overall the tractor and loader are in excellent condition.

Scam. If you google the email address it comes up all over the country with the same add.

We get those scam adds here on Kijiji all the time. Price is usually 2/3 to 1/2 of the going rate. That one is even lower.

I've see ads like that before, deals that are too good to be true, these guys want you to send them a deposit then they disappear.

Yep, that sounds about right. I answered one once and the tractor was in Michigan although the ad seemed to indicate it is local. I told him no thanks and he emailed me back giving me a story that he was in the army and had to go on another tour to the middle east and it just got worse from there. That really was low IMO.

I answered one once in my local paper. It was too good to be true. Guy didn't even answer after I asked why it was so cheap.
