PostSubject: Crazy Ads online.   Wed Dec 20, 2017 6:11 pm

So while looking for a parts tractor.  I came across this ad:

Facebook Ad wrote:

Running when parked - drive mechanism is worn out

Old Murray riding mower, Motor was running when parked, drive mechanism wore out.

Brigs & Stratton 1.25 HP Motor

OK, what is a drive mechanism?  Also, I think that 12.5HP briggs is a bit underpowered at 1.25HP.


LOL

Share your crazy ads too!  Just use the "quote" button to separate the ad from your comments.

Haha, well I don't think it's a nice machine. It needs to be lowered, needs aftermarket brakes, racing slicks, general safety stuff, etc. I'd give like $50 for it, just because the trans and the engine are worth that much.

I can't believe these crazy ads you've found in Texas @Double W Cross Ranch.  That tractor is worth no where near $800.

Especially not with the stock carb like that one has.

Okay, so the guy has brought it down to $550.  Still no way he's going to sell it for that much.

LOL yeah! Cuz it has a modded exhaust, and other than that, stock carb, stock gov, if it does produce 30 hp it must be a hum-dinger of a mod. LOL.

Crazy Truck Rental Place That Restores Old Tractors? wrote:
Vintage Cub Cadet for sale This machine is beautiful. It is still fully operational but to pretty to put to work. However, you should still use her because she's begging to get out there and do the work for you. This is a steal for $3,500 and you won't find another deal like it. Come by to check it out.

CALL ONLY please do not text or email.

So it's a steal at $3,500?  Seriously?  I mean, it's a nice tractor, but he's asking like 8x more than it's worth.  And it's too pretty to work, but I should still make it work anyway?  Because it wants to, even though it's too pretty to? Huh?
Oh, and it's been up for like 6 months on various ads.  The price hasn't changed, I'm guessing he hasn't figured out he's not going to get it.

Wow this ad is still up?  I could see paying $2000 for it if the deck and everything is in mint shape.

Rockey and I have been exploring his local craigslist. 
https://pittsburgh.craigslist.org/for/d/lawn-tractor-turned-go-cart/6604390495.html



A few years I bult this mostly out of boredom from an old riding mower. Runs strong, needs battery. Goes 18mph measured by GPS. That is apparently the limit of the transmission which is why I stopped playing with it. I wanted to build a drunken redneck death machine but it just isnt fast enough to be truly scary.

Goes forward and reverse has brakes and a seat belt. What more could a redneck want?


$200 OBO


LAPBELT?! SOMEONE'S GONNA KILL THEMSELVES!!!
