    it is a 96-98 model in desent shape good fixer uper
    the hose is missing, but has the metal throw tube on top
    i need money to fix my truck so here it is 450.00 obo takes it
    i can deliver for small fee up to 100miles
    this machine is in good cond. just the motor has issues
    rebuild kit costs 220.00
    i have no pics but 450.00 for a billy goat truck loader is a steal if you ask me.

    It lookes like a 12 inch or more hose
    its not the cheapo 6 inch hose model
    i have no pics of it and can meet you at exit 82 on garden state parkway
    450.00 obo for it
    it runs when a little gas is pored into carb
    has oil blow by from the manifold into carb
    might be head gaskets dont know???
    other wise decent shape

    Hmmm how soon are you looking to get rid of it? I'm waiting for my income tax check so i can convince the sife to let me spend more $$$$ LoL I will look into how much the hose is and rebuild kit and see if it's worth it to me.

    i need money fast but look into it, i say about 200 for the rebuild kit and for a 12 inch x 12.5 feet hose its 250.00 new
    i heard home depot has hose for heaters 12inches by??? that works better than the original for much less..
