    Thanks to the landscaper in New Jersey who sold me these 4 backpack blowers yesterday for $45 a piece thinking they all needed to be rebuilt! 2 Echo 755t's and 2 Redmax 7001s. ALL STARTED RIGHT UP when I got home with minor adjusting. They all could use a few bucks in new parts but its not critical as I used the Redmax's today and they ripped! I bought them hoping I could get one Echo and one Redmax working for minimal money. But another $50 bucks into each one and they could probably be sold for $250-300 a piece. I'll be keeping the Redmax's tho.

    run the serial numbers....they could be hot... would not be the first time a landscaper stole something and then resold it..

    I was thinking that too but based on what looked like his parents mansion he lived in and all the brand new Redmax 8000's I don't think he needs to steal anything. Definitely a good point though!

    I would take a sucker from a baby and eat it right in front of him.:cry:

    On another note that is a pretty sweet deal.

    Could be stolen but maybe not.

    I'm selling two Echo 265T''s this week for $50 each. I wanted $150 but I found out they needed about $100 worth of work each.

    They are happy and I'm happy.
