Thanks to the landscaper in New Jersey who sold me these 4 backpack blowers yesterday for $45 a piece thinking they all needed to be rebuilt! 2 Echo 755t's and 2 Redmax 7001s. ALL STARTED RIGHT UP when I got home with minor adjusting. They all could use a few bucks in new parts but its not critical as I used the Redmax's today and they ripped! I bought them hoping I could get one Echo and one Redmax working for minimal money. But another $50 bucks into each one and they could probably be sold for $250-300 a piece. I'll be keeping the Redmax's tho.

run the serial numbers....they could be hot... would not be the first time a landscaper stole something and then resold it..

I was thinking that too but based on what looked like his parents mansion he lived in and all the brand new Redmax 8000's I don't think he needs to steal anything. Definitely a good point though!

I would take a sucker from a baby and eat it right in front of him.:cry:

On another note that is a pretty sweet deal.

Could be stolen but maybe not.

I'm selling two Echo 265T''s this week for $50 each. I wanted $150 but I found out they needed about $100 worth of work each.

They are happy and I'm happy.

Nice deal there. It's really just a matter of people not really knowing what they have. I bought a Kubota 21" in basically new condition from a guy with nbothing missing from it for $115. He told me he couldn't figure out why so many people had called him on it. I was the first so I got it. Every time I use that thing I feel like I should find him and give him some more money!

They are not stolen. They were all bought by me brand new, years ago. They were just not worth it for me to get them repaired.

I wouldn't pay any more than what i sold them for, for used blowers that needed work.

I also have 5 echo string trimmers for sale. Some model 210's and the others are 265t's. They need the carbs to be cleaned or rebuilt. And no they are not stolen, they were bought by me brand new, years ago (between 3-5 years ago). $30/each or all for $125 (prefer to sell them all to one person)

lol nice analogy marc. Most of the people with rich mummsy and daddykins are stuck up snobs and most of them waste their money.
