Wow.. What a waste of a good machine. People who do this damage don't deserve to own nice equipment.

man how dumb and cheap can people be, flat wore out the skids on both sides, i'd bet the bucket looks just as bad now, making it not worth near his asking price

Like someone hooked it up to their trailer hitch and dragged it around town for an hour or two.

pretty sad. Appears the owner understood the purpose of skids, as the top is worn out and they have been turned over. Seems owner was just too cheap to buy a new set. Killed his bucket for what .... $25 skid shoes. See this a lot. I just dont get it.
On the up side..should clear to the pave.
