KW, Nate showed me the craigslist of the 100 he is getting and it looks fair to good condition, the covers make it great though. lol!

I'd post the ad but I bet Nate didn't post it since he hasn't retreived the 100 yet.

umm don't know nate I should have looked closer before I posted the first one on the sweeper,it's pretty small compared to some i'm used to seeing.Wouldn't hurt to hold a bit and try for $50 but you might knock ii down a bit if it doesn't sell.If it was a parker you'd get $50-$75 real easy even a craftsman but the agrifabs are little cheaper made.

yeah kw i agree its kinda cheaply made but i bet ill get 50 for it lol if i have it a while no big deal lol

and john it drives off of both wheels but ratchets when turning but it still drives the brushes


oh todays progress i got that mtd push mower all cleaned up and serviced ill post it for 25 bucks lol aint much of a mower but for 25 bucks what u expect lol then got on the lb it fires but wont run got to consult an lb god lol and the lawn general looks a little funney but its washed up and has a hood at least lol little bit of fabrication involved doesnt look too bad tomorrow ill paint it and service the mower then we will list it for 300 and see what happens man there was a ton of grass on that thing as for the 100 i took the side panels off and gave it a power washing too other than that that was the day not too bad i think some decent progress though
