Respectfully,

I never click on a link that I don't know or never heard of what it is, especially when marked scam, spam or otherwise …..

The link is for a Cub Cadet 28 in. 357cc Three-Stage Electric Start Gas Snow Blower at $178.90
Obviously this is an impossible price and why I said it must be a scam.

Not a scam, you get a perfectly good picture of that snow blower for $178

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.

" if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is "

This is a motto which should be in everyone's life skills folder.
