    I dunno, lots of pics, that's a good sign, and actually most of the scam sellers usually have hundreds of feedback points they steal from other people. It's only a 3 day listing, yeah thats a low price and appears to be no reserve, so i'm assuming he dosn't know how e-bay really works and will prolly back out if the price dosn't go as high as he wants. I have been parusing e-bay a lot for mowers and what not and am really suprised at the lack off the blatent scammers this winter. shoot him an e-mail and find out! good luck!

    at first glance it seems kinda odd ot me but then again look in the background, there is another machine there. also this is his first time to sell on ebay it seems like based on the number next to his name so he might not have the gist of the idea. Also like others have said he could be watching it and going to end it soon if it does not produce the net return he is look for. i got it tracked to keep up with it and see how it turns out

    Looks funny to me. I had a buddy that had a loader stolen from him, then it showed up on ebay a couple weeks later. I don't know what happened, the insurance co, and police handled it.

    Then I first posted(one hour ago), this loader was at $10. It had been that way for two days. And only had 17 views :dizzy: . Now in an hour it jumped to over $4000.00.

    Just some background for everyone, now that the price is on the rise. Maybe I can get a commission :)
