craftsman 3-stager with predator swap for $100

Granted, it doesn't run right according to the ad but most of the work has already been done?

Snowblower

newer tires too.

I never understand why if it's such a "simple" fix the person doesn't do it themselves ??
That and how they know it's simple to begin with.


Part of ad:
Predator, is a very popular engine however this one needs an adjustment because the last time i used it runs for a few minutes then dies. Starts right back-up, runs for a few, then dies. So, something simple is causing it to quit. Gas problem maybe ! ? These engines are $100 bucks new. This one has less than 8 hrs. on it !

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

Price is not bad overall, but I agree 100%, if it is "simple" then fix it and sell it for more $$$.
Chances are much higher that it will sell if it is runing and working right.

A great opportunity but man look at that Predator rusting up.

Isn't the valve cover aluminum?????

I'm not sure if it's the cover rusting or the muffler dripping down on it if it's aluminum ??

the valve cover looks likes its just greasy but the muffler looks like it is rusting from being stored outside just like any engine, including genuine hondas will. i have had my clone for about 3-4 years and so far there are no signs of rust

this is average surface rust on hondas used in commercial environments. both are about 10 years old. fading on these is also quite common as you can see by looking at the plastics in the photos. valve covers on hondas and most clones except late model predators are stamped steel
