    I have bought things on e-bay. Cordless drill and impact, other small stuff. Never had any problems, but never bought anything like a mower though. My dad has sold a couple cars and everything went well.

    if u have 10% of a brain u can use ebay to get anything cheap. someone is gonna bash it but use your head and ask any question u have to the seller.

    Man do I love Ebay or what, to me its better than a Walmart, I have bought a lot on that website actually just received a brand new in the box Echo PB 261L back pack blower that I paid $186 on Ebay, 100 bucks savings or so, the best thing to do is look at their feedback, a lot of these guys have sold hundreds of products and have 100% good feedback, just do your research like with anything but you can save a lot of money....

    I bought a lot of stuff on e-bay. two mowers and two truck, got great deals on them, but u must drive to get them. I look forward to the road trips though and wright it all off on my taxes (fuel, hotels, food, ect).

    I bought a Toro Z Master and a 52" walk behind on e-bay. Both machines worked out great and I got pretty good deal on both of them!
