ha ha ha. I tried to buy the same mower. It's listed all over the country for $2600. It's a scam artist trying to rip you off. I had purchased a 2006 Lazer Z HP with 10 hours on it earlier this year for $3600, and thought I had robbed the guy I bought it from. Was reading this thread and was feeling a bit bummed, until I realized that there is no way you are getting that mower for that price.

No man wire the money I am sure that the guy is reputable, and has thousands of these machines that he is selling on Craigslist.

Wow. I actually got another reply from the sender. No answers to my questions realting to their proof of ownership of the machine or the serial number but here's what I got.

The mower is in El Paso, TX.

I want to finish this deal through eBay International Trading. They will hold your payment and release it to me only after you will receive, inspect and agree with the mower. I will give you 3 inspection days.

I will start the shipping in the same day with the payment confirmation.
The delivery process to your location will take 5-6 days.

Tell me if we can get the ball rolling and I will contact eBay regarding our transaction. after that they will send you the information of the purchasing.

Thanks


Ok, so if they're doing it thru ebay, why list it on Craigs List? And does it still sound like a scam? Maybe they have fake ebay stuff mocked up, I've seen that before. Gotta watch the URL and make sure it's legit. Man, I hate scammers!

P.S. - I noticed the wording is a little weird, almost looks like them damn badly translated manuals for Japaneese appliances.

Zmaster-man, be careful there! I saw that same exact add, down to the hours and price on craigslist in my area. If that is where you saw it at there is a good chance it is a scam. And to answer your question I had a 23 on a 60" deere 737 and the power was very adaquate.

I agree, I'm in contact with the seller now and it defintely seems fishy. I just emailed back that after I get the serial number like I asked for, then we can talk. See my post above yours.

LOL, I just got a reply to a previous message too where I asked for a phone number to discuss things. Here's what I got, pretty much the same as the other message I got but now it's looking really really fishy...can't be reached by phone due to a neck infection, rofl.

The mower is in El Paso, TX. I am ashamed to tell you this. I can't be reached by phone I have a neck infection.. Feel free to ask me anything by email.
