2 years ago I was given a Simplicity 4211H tractor for free. I spent $75 to rebuild the carburetor and put a new battery in it. I sharpened the blades and I used it over the summer until last fall and I decided to sell it for $200. Not to mention I made about $1500 with it over the summer. I also bought a Ryobi trimmer at a yard sale for $5 and used it for 2 seasons until my father diluted my gas and burned it up, that was a strong unit to be an el-cheapo. I was given a Craftsman blower that was written off as dead. I changed the spark plug and it runs fine now. I still have it and use it everytime I mow. I also was given 2 Homelite XL-12 chainsaws, one that runs and the other for parts. That is one of the toughest saws I've ever used. I don't use it very often though, it needs some carb work, but it is a beast! So what I'm asking is, how many of you got a great deal on something (either given to you or picked up dirt cheap) and use it regularly?
