    That stuff never goes for the opening bid, if it's a low price.

    True, but the buy it now is still decent... Usually crunch time is the last few mins of the bidding war. Anyone use cragislist to search irrigation products too?

    I sometimes look at Craigslist. Amazing what some folks think their apartments are worth renting for.

    I don't know how it is in NY, but with the housing market the way it is, I don't understand why people are asking for so much for their apartments...

    Because a lot of people are losing their homes to foreclosure and need to ren. Supply and demand.

    You might check the date codes. The first year or two production of ICC was full of bugs. These might be recalled units that are being resold.

    AI Inc, that makes sense... I assumed that the rentals would go down too...


    sprinklerchris, I sent the seller a message a private message and the seller told me that the timers and heads that they are selling were purchased last month and the date codes are from jan 08

    That first ICC went for $135.00.

    Did the seller say how he got them? Maybe they "fell off a truck".
