Grader on Ebay Buyers Beware!

Recommended Posts

If you all have noticed the AC grader blade on Ebay right now,( see the link below)if you look carefully at the hitch it is not a original AC blade hitch. This is a homade copy. I looked at my parts books and the difference is readily apparrent. The picture is at such an angle that I cannot tell whether the blade itself is original or not. Whether the seller, "Allischic" ,knows this or not is up in the air so I will give benefit of the doubt, but it is definately not a "real" AC grader blade as advertised. I'm sure it will fit and work fine, but It should not be bid on for a originality basis.[A href='http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2013313206']http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2013313206[/a]

Sam, Besides the hitch, even the part that bolts to the blade is different. Does that look like fresh yellow paint with overspray on the blade? http://abacus.sj.ipixmedia.com/abc/M28/_EBAY_739812e3ecdf99e5123d7ad137/i-1.JPG

It looks like there are a couple extra holes in the iron on the grader blade on ebay also. The crossmember has a hole and there's a hole in the hitch side iron by the pivot.

Could be original blade. Someone did a decent job making it however. Should be functionable for someone just wanting a usable grader blade. Happy Easter to you and your family guys.. M. Kerr
