Patina doesn't worry me speedy, but the price certainly wipes me out of it.

Yah Face-book Mug's place has been overtaken by greed. It was bargain hunter's paradise at first but not anymore.


Ahh, if only victa had kept producing the thumblatch catcher series, they would be in better shape today!

Hi Speedy ,Norm and Mf,

Hmmm I had a few Mayfair Mowers cleaner than the one below and couldn't get $30. so just scrapped the bases ,I guess a
few people think because the mower is old it must be worth a lot.

The 3 Victa mowers below if I wanted them sold in a few weeks , the 2 strokes would go for $50. but they still might not sell
and would get lots of offers for $25 and the 4 stroke would sell for $80.

Another problem I have with mowers I sell cheap, I seem to get a few people that want to transfer money so I can
hold the mower for a few months until they are ready to pick up the mower.(layaway)

Cheers
Max.

Hi Max,
People can put any price they want on a mower, doesn't mean they are going to sell. Like that bloke in Dandy North who wants from memory $450 for a Honda self propelled with rear axle and the motor untested. I told him to keep me posted and if he sold it I would buy him a beer. Didn't hear back from him.

Basically scabbing free storage. Never accept. You're then obliged to clutter your place with their junk for who knows how long? There's some really unreasonable people out there.

Hi Norm,

Yes the same guy is selling a Victa Powertorque Utility for $300. lucky if he gets $100.

There is always a guy from Dandy and every Mower ad is "estate cleanup " you see the same ads for years.


Cheers
Max.
