Just wondering because we have been watching e-pay for a few weeks. For blowers and they are all going for $200.00 plus when it only costs $299.00-$399.00 new. I just don't understand why you would pay so much for a machine that is always abused. By not using correct gas mixture or leaving old gas in it. being thrown around, dropped off trucks, runover,etc,etc.... Sorry just a rant. just wanted to pick up some back up machines and I would definately buy new before paying $50.00 less then new after shipping. For a very used machine.
