Holy crap Someone got a screaming deal. And, the listing says it was bought last year for $1,200, so the seller may have gotten an unpleasant lesson in how auctions can go.

No rubber handle grip of the auger chute rotation rod. No wonder it went so cheap ! LOL

Seller lost $1000 in a year. Something does not compute.

It appears that they didn't set a reserve price. So if they were simply assuming that the auction would "gain traction", for lack of a better word, driving the bids up, perhaps they simply got a nasty surprise.

Maybe it was just bad luck and not a lot of people saw the auction? I'll confess I check CL when I'm shopping for big heavy equipment like blowers, I don't think of eBay. Because I assume the items are never near me, even though sometimes of course you'll get lucky, and something good will be in your area

I saw that same listing a few months ago, it was at like $500 or so. Same exact picture. It made me suspect that it was a SCAM using the picture from the previous listing. Maybe it wasn't.

Another one in Ridgfield Conn for 255. A little to far for me. 2.5 hours each way.

He had the machine listed on Craigslist looking for $750. Took a bath at $113.50. The tires are worth more than that...

Biggest problem, he picked the worst possible time of year to sell it..
99% of potential buyers aren't even looking right now.
He should have waited until November.

it had 8 bids, but only from three bidders.
