    Does anyone know of this guy? Who is he? Dealer or just a guy who buys and sells mowers. Looks like he has some decent stuff at fair prices. I just dont want to bid on something if he's band-aiding up junk. Hes from Street Maryland.

    I see him on there a lot, infact we were going to buy a mower from him (I think his name is Bruce) but the mower sold before we could counter offer. He seems legit but ya never know. I personally would never buy anything from a private owner unless I can see it and drive it. There are a lot of scams like a Ferris diesel 72" deck with 100hrs on it and the "buy it now price" is 2k, come on!

    It says right on his Ebay site that he is a used equipment and parts dealer.

    That user and a few others sell a lot of used equipment on ebay. Commercial mowing equipment which is maintained by user tim-jake is a big seller. Somebody else sells used equipment, I think his store name is quality used equipment. I know his personal name is Seth Fenby (spelling???)

    Notice on the lazer he spray painted around the deck where scratches were. Just be sure to look over it.

    Bought a JRCO leaf plow from him last month. Only thing missing was a couple of nuts and bolts (he told me about this up front). I replaced them at the local hardware store. Communications were very good and he went out of his way to get it shipped quickly. I had it two days after the sale closed. As usual with ebay sellers and sales, check the "feed back".

    I am reluctant to purchase anything used without looking at it in person. Mainly because I am scared of getting burned
