Used, "LIKE NEW" Honda HS828 $700

Not mine, and I have nothing to do with it.
But I do want to stress on how can someone dare to state "used, like new condition" on something that worn out....(!)

I can see someone saying used, like new condition, but this is not like new condition as you stated.

Am I seeing it right, are the augers on the left side bent?

Both augers are really ground down (serrations are completely gone) and quite a bit bent, the auger housing is also quite ground down but on top of it is bent and cracked on the upper area.
Nowhere near in "Like New Condition"

This is how the augers look like on a new machine, notice the difference

Yes they are!!!

I see this all the time on Syracuse Craigslist, on any given day there's 400 snowblowers for sale and I'll bet 25% of them are beat yet the seller wants top $$$. Even the dealers around here have used machines for sale for big $$$ that are less than primo. Every once in a while you see one in good condition for next to no money, sometimes even free and they get snapped up within an hour of posting. Best time for a used machine around here is right now, later in the season and we haven't had a lot of snow recently.

There's 430 for sale today. Here's one in fairly nice condition, needs a belt, still it's only $150 or best offer, I'll bet he'd take $100, notice the new machine in the background, reason for selling I'm sure! These were easily over $1000 15 years ago.

Maybe what the seller meant is he's used this one up and would like a new one?

~1994 Ariens 924084 (ST1032) "papa bear": restored, re-engined, real nice!
1991 Ariens 924050 (ST824) "mama bear"
Toro PowerCurve 1800 "baby bear"

Be alert! America needs more lerts.
