I've been approached several times by people, some obvious drunks, others everyday people. They ask if i want to buy a piece of equipment they usaully have in the trunk, or pick up bed. just today, this guys pulls up next to me and asks me to pull over. i'm thinking he either wants some work done (really bad??), or there's a problem with my truck. Turns out he had a used back pack blower in the back of his pick up. before i even saw it, i asked how much was he looking to get. he said "....well what do they go for used.....150 - 200?" I said, nah, i just bought an extra. He immediately replies, "alright, 50 bucks!" So i get out to look at his thing. turns out to be a beat up used homelite home depot blower. the one that's really a hand held, but mounted to straps and a piece of plastic. I told him i need commercial, and then replied (with alcohol fuming from his mouth..)"35 bucks.... come on." I finally said no thanks. I was debating as a back up, but was picturing some old guy looking around his garage at that moment for his missing blower....... would you have taken it, even for a backup? or do you think that encourages these guys? Not too long ago, an old guy going into mass at my church as i was cuttingh, offered to sell me a brand new commercial blower he had in his trunk. but he wanted about 300.
