Warranty,warranty,warranty and one more time for good luck-WARRANTY. Good deals go out the door really quick when things go wrong.

Just talked to him again. Says it's a 2014 model as transaxle problems were in ilder units. I'm not concerned about stolen. I can easily look that up. I'm worried about trans issues. He knocked. It down to 1200

I saw this same unit and talked to the guy last week. He even sent me pics of it showing the serial number. I just didn't get a warm fuzzy about the whole thing.

The next time someone complains about your pricing, ask them how much their barber would charge to come over and cut their hair.

Excellent at least you were not stuck with a stolen unit that would get taken away and out of cash always got to be cautious on there.
