Good deals

What are some of the best deals that you have found on equipment?!? On Craigslist, Ebay, etc.

I bought this yesterday!
It's a Toro Z500 Z Master 60" with the light kit, canopy, hitch kit and only 54.8 hours!!!

I paid $3,500!

What kind of deals have y'all found? Pics please!

I don't have any pics but I scored a practically brand new Stihl FC-90 edger off craigslist earlier this season for $200. The guy was an LCO and said he didn't use it much which was obvious by the condition. He had two FS90R's that he was using to edge with.

Told Salcido the best find I probably have gotten is my redmax clearing saw. 550.00 msrp, I got it for 150.00 shipped. Was in excellent condition. Made a ton of $$ With that thing.

Haha, I didn't notice that when I took the picture. We took the motor off that mower and put it on another. That weedeater mower is blown and we took the shaft off and just threw the motor on the back of the JD.
