Used Snowblowers - Bad Lying Sellers

For sale on craigslist in my area:

Ariens 28" deluxe. Used twice. Paint is still fresh looking. New at **** $1200
Asking $750.

By the picture he posted, I can tell that it is a 15-25 years old snowblower. Yeah right, he only used it twice. I'm not saying that it is not worth $750. I'm saying that he is a bad liar. Make it appealing, but stay relative to its true condition. Everyone is saying the same thing, but at least they have the newer models.

I wasn't going to, but here you go:

Just don't bother him. I don't even know why I created this thread in the first place. To amuse everyone on here, maybe.
I doubt if he will be able to sell it at that price. They usually go for weeks and months.

actually doesn't look that bad but of course you would have to inspect in person.

but i don't know nothing about Ariens.

The seller only used it twice, once when he bought it from the original owner to test it out and again after he tuned it up and put the $750 price tag. To be honest it looks good but that picture quality is pretty bad. Will he get $750, probably not.

Look good to me. Some people like old more than new. It is just the way he listed it. He even called it "deluxe". I hope it was something similar to a current deluxe model.

They just don't sell quick around here.

What about "paint is still fresh"? How can it be fresh after 20 years? He should have said it more specifically, like "used twice since I bought it used". Make me think that he is a saleman. Maybe it is just me, but I like to throw people under the bus for small mistakes.

That thing is from the mid 2000's and did not go near that amount new. I paid $1100 for my 11528, in 05. Quite the embellisher.

The seller would be lucky to get $25 to $100 for that thing around my area.
Anybody with common sense wouldn't pay much for that machine that came from a Big Box store, knowing of the low quality that is sold from them.
