    I just won a New Proslide on Ebay for $232.50. I checked around and that seems to be a pretty good price. I have never tried one so I hope it's as nice as I hear on lawnsite. It was my first time bidding on Ebay. It was interesting. It will be used on my 48" TTHP 17hp Kawi e/s.

    I have bidded on ebay and won a few items, everything that I have bought has been cheaper and in good shape. I'm still skeptical when I get ready to purchase anything.

    We bought a new Echo C somthing chainsaw (my dad's 1st ebay purchase) Got it for $199, retail was close to 3 somthing.

    The guy emailed me (right after Isabel went through) and said that he had an accident that sent our chainsaw down a flight of stairs.

    He sent us the MO back, but no chainsaw and dad had to pay for postage and the MO.

    U really have to watch who you buy from. It's a gamble somtimes.

    Ebay is ok but watch the shipping and handling.
