Okay, enough with the pictures, lets look at the ad a minute. In one sentence, the ad states: "Buyer is to arrange pickup in Oswego, NY. Shipping is NOT available for this item." Then at the very end of the ad is this statement: "NO LOCAL PICKUP, Due to our recent expansion and multiple store locations throughout New York, we are no longer able to offer local pickups". So for me that begs the question just how the heck are you supposed to "get" your tractor if you're the "lucky" ;) winner? Sorry, but that was a nit that just had to be picked. :D

I'd bet there's a heat contol or vibrator on the seat. (LOL) The shipping sounds like usual 'Ebayease' lingo.... Another good one is; "I prefer not to ship these bigger items, so unless you can come & get it do not bid. If you really want it but are too far away give me a call at xxx-xxx-xxxx & we can talk about shipping it. (if you email me about shipping it I will not respond)" ,"I am a dealer so if I ship it to MN or if you pick it up here I will charge you 6.5% sales tax on it."

I responded to an auction in Vermont that stated Vermont residents were required to pay 6% tax. I requested his Vermont sales tax number which by state law is to be displayed or presented on request if charging sales tax. He did not respond and the auction disappered.

I sent this guy an e-mail asking if he could confirm it was a 16HP, since that wouldn't have been stock, and about the ad saying both 'no shipping' and 'no local pickup'. It took a few days, but his response: All the information that we have is as provided by the owner. You do have our satisfaction guarantee to assist your bidding. You might search the model number on the web to see if the engine information is accurate or not per your comments. I read the auction and it says 'Shipping not available' so it will be for a local pick up only.

Marty, Maybe he took the leftover steel he had from cutting it off the deck and added it to the blower? LOL!:D BtW, I was able to englarge the pic of the engine. The model number is 309421. Isn't that a 12hp engine?

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
