I got a dingo tx425 w/ 400hrs for less than 5k. That was two years ago... it is getting harder and harder to find deals on there now.

I love Ebay! I have bought lots on there.

I bought a 55ft bucket chip truck, for $10,200 had 30,000 miles on it and only 1459 hrs. saved about $20,000

A Grapple dump truck with a 18 ft bed and a 6000 pound grapple loader. it was a steal!

2 stump grinders

A 722 Grasshopper 61inch for a few thousand savings.

My crew cab dually truck 4x4. it was in CA 2700 miles drive home no ploblems $6300

Lots of small tings too

Also my 86 dodge daytona cs turbo z with only 24000 original miles in mint shape.

Ebay is a big reason Im able to keep my cost down. If it wasnt for ebay my overhead would be 10s of thousand higher and I wouldn't be in as good as shape as im in now.


Thanks Mike

i don't see anything wrong with buying elsewhere and then spending the money you saved in the local community. that way you benefit as well as parts of the community that otherwise would not have.

Yeah I work a little to hard to not watch every penny. Depreciating assets need to be purchased as cheaply as possible.

If you can buy a scag TT for 5k w/ 100hrs on it at an auction... you are telling me you are going to spend 9k at the dealer just to support the community?

There is never a cut and dry answer to every situation. If you are saving over a grand and saving tax that needs to be looked at.

I found a 14 X 7 foot enclosed pace American Cargo Sport 1 year old with gate, side door, custom vented windows. 52 inch Exmark Turf Tracer with 38 hours on it, Echo Trimmer, Echo Stick Edger, an awesome Echo Backpack Blower, and a 18 inch chainsaw all for 7200.00 the trailer itself was that brand new not to mention the Ex for that price ..... Local Dealer here is not interested in Commercial Sales only peasley residents wanting to buy a Homelite Stihl Trimmer or something ridiculous.... I love Ebay I buy mostly all of my equipment on there.
