The guy hitting on my nerves  lying at me .

Give him 1 week to get it out or you are reselling or going to scrap it.

No way I would store it for no charge as he has had plenty time to come and get it.

If you still have email communications regarding coming to pick up the blower in your mailbox. ...create a folder for all of them and save for a few months .

I agree with Mark no way I would store either, he either comes and gets it or I'ld probably just throw outside and if he comes and it's all rusted oh-well. Just my $.02

If you don't want to bother selling or scrapping it. Tell the dead beat buyer your going to do as Lloyd said and do a curb alert on Craigslist. ..that is that you are going to drag the blower to the curb and list it as FREE  ( under free stuff) to whom ever gets there 1st.

It will be gone in less than 1 day I bet.

I agree with what's been said so far.  One last call, and let him know it goes to the curb for "free to the first one" by XX date and his payment will be considered storage fees.  I've been down that road in the past and it's always a weird situation to be in.

Left him a voice message this morning , giving him a 5 days notice to pick up or I am gonna get rid of it , one o'clock called me freaking out apologizing , and promised to pick tonight , 5,30pm now he didn't show up yet, my last try with him . He is getting on my nerves , just hate when crap like this happens.

I would probably handle a little bit differ than the crowd here. I'm glad he picked it up and it is a non issue, now. But I think if you had said, " screw it" and put it out by the curb, it may have come back to haunt you. If the dude came and slashed tires or some other type of vandalism that would be hard to prove, it would of really sucked.

 

Maybe the dude is just lazy or is not super motivated but maybe he has a loved one dying of cancer or something else awful and pickin up a snowblower he paid for already isn't his biggest priority.

Exactly !!  Sorry I understand other motives and illnesses but when a deal is struck honor it or make arrangments to handle, don't just let someone hanging.

Glad he finally picked it up.   Just my $.02

Glad to hear you got rid of it. I am setting with a 35 one row pull type picker that was paid for in 2014, have not heard from him for ever. Last time I sent him anything I told him it was going outside and it has set there every since, guess it will set there and rust away. I haven't even seen a post from him on the Allis Chalmers sight.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
