    The Aug. 7 Iron Planet sale has a boat load of ASVs mostly 30 and 50's. They are have not been inspected yet but if your in the market, I'll bet they go cheap. They are mostly 05's and from the Gulf Coast States, perhaps buyer beware. Just a heads up for you suspended undercarriage girls.:laugh:

    Most likely flooded machines I'll bet, at least the rubber stayed moist!

    I saw these the other day and called the factory. They told me they were machines from Home Depot. Apparently ASV and Home Depot have some sort of rental arrangement in over a 100 stores through a SE dealer and they flip them every two or three years for new ones.

    I have seen alot of those home depot machines on Ebay. Most have something like 500 to 1200 hrs on them. Most I have seen hare from Florida.

    At least you would think that they have been maintained.

    One would think, but have you ever seen some of the people the big box stores hire?

    Makes me wonder. So I will look but not buy.
