    $105 is kind of an odd number especially for a sale between friends! What was wrong with $100 even or maybe $120? Sounds like a deal between a couple youngsters!

    Why would both of them want to sell it? If it works good, it's probably stolen. Look it over for engravements or other signs of prior ownership. I bet it is stolen.

    Here is the reply that I wrote on your FIRST thread you started on this subject:
    Slightly used? $105? Equipment doesn't just go for random, low prices - especially out of the blue from people who aren't even involved the lawn business. Use your instincts. Common sense tells you what the real deal is....
    Post the serial numbers...

    Its stolen or he bought it at yard sale from a homeowner. Does it burn your hands when you start it?
