Does stretch the definition of mint condition. Maybe he was just trying to say it is painted a nice shade of green.

Of course, it could just be gummed up because the PO ran it once when he first got it and then never had a use for it. Eddy, you better put something in it to prevent the exact same thing from happening after Guy fixes it for you.

Gummed up, sat for over a year without being used. This is the snow machine, it was close to a grand new!: http://www.powerequipmentdirect.com/Images/MTD-Gold-31AH65FH795-Snow-Thrower/i6232.html

"Can you teach it to blow leaves?" No need, I also picked up a steal on a yard vacuum that will suck up anything that is not deeply rooted!!

Yep - safe bet it's basically new and just gummed up from lack of use.

(I originally meant to give you a hard time - point being it rarely snows enough for even a small snow blower. Then in interest of not appearing too ass-holey and just it case it does snow a ton and I need to borrow it I edited it down a notch.. )

Behold the mighty Leaf-a-saurus Rex. Found on Williamsburg C.L. several years ago sitting in a storage unit, wouldn't run, looked new w/ all manuals and accessories. Got it cheap!

It's awesome - I can clean up my yard (~2 acres) in a couple hours vs all weekend with rakes/blowers/tarps.

I need one of those! We've done (and I use that term loosely ) 3x the rake, mower, tarp episode only to be looking at
2-3 more episodes.....

Hope yous guys who rode to Bluegrass yesterday for the Buckwheat cakes missed all this.
Nope, we drove right through it. Dusty, me, Tom, and Clyde were right in it. Cop was standing in the middle of the road with a gagle of them pulled over. Thought it was an inspection stop or something. He just glared at us and waved us by as we rolled up. Just looked like a group of guys out having a good time on a nice day. Passing on a double yellow, nope, never done that. Whatever. Man is keeping us down.

Also sorry I wasn't with the crew to see you in WA. There will be more rides to Blue Grass for their feast, but buckwheats will be fixed tonight for dinner so I can get my fix.
