:dizzy: Yeah screwy! Also is it a mid-mount or a front mount?
And the two pictures of the grasshopper are from Knott & Geisbert, Inc located in Fredrick, Maryland.
Well, thats ebay for ya:D :rolleyes:

But so fare (knock on wood) I have had good luck with them.
Before I got on L/S, I was trying to get a yazoo ZTR, I had it and al, but I sent the guy monies through aypal and NEVER sent me the mower! What happened was he gave me his "parteners" address for paypal (in ohio, the guy selling was in wisconsin) and they "broke up". I got my money back, but the guy selling never answered any e-mails, and then I got ticked. I put in a request for his phone # on ebay to settle it, and His wife answered and I said "hi are you selling a yazoo mower on e-bay?" she told me no, but her husband was. I asked her if she knew the Item number, and she did. It was MY mower(or what would have been!) she gave it to her husband and he denied every last bit! What a Jerkkkkk!!!!!!:angry:
check his feedback. HE SELLS SHOES!:D
I've had good luck buying and selling on Ebay, but also have been ripped off for big dollars too. Beware, sellers can be very crafty and they know more than all but the most experienced Ebay users on methods to defraud you.

They will tell you ANYTHING. I would never pay anyone a dime on Paypal, and would never buy a large item unless I saw it first.

despite their promises, Paypal and Ebay protection is non-existant. A person can rip you off, then just reestablish a new account. they are even hacking into other members dormant accounts to use to "sell" items.

Use Ebay to find mowers in your area for sale, then go make a deal on your own after you've checked it out.

Even a mower I got a good deal on came broken and missing parts. The seller basically lied about its condition. The only reason it was a good deal for me was because the seller was also stupid and put it in the wrong category with no minimum price or reserve and nobody else bid on it. But it needed $250 worth of work on arrival. Most sellers don't even care about their feedback. Some naive person will always bid on their other items and they know it. and other websites are full of stories about lack of ebay/paypal customer service. It only takes one bad transaction out of 100 to make you sorry you used it. I've read that 2.6% of their transactions are fraudulent, so beware.

Stick to buying $50 items on Ebay.
