I've never done online perchases, prices are tempting, I've heard of stories both ways, You cant get ripped off and you can get ripped off. Don't think I will buy off ebay even though a guy on this forum got an expensive blower for half price (actually I don't know that he got it, he did order it) I'm just tossing around Idea's. Oh yeah, I'm in canada. I think I heard that ebay ships to canada. Would shipping eliminate the discounts one might find on ebay?
