    ebay isn't bad you just have to be careful. I've spent about 60,000 on there so far. two trucks, enclosed trailer, etc etc. Talk to the seller. I was actually looking at that a couple of weeks ago. there's a bunch of videos of that somewhere, I think on youtube. I'll check and see for you

    Thats the same idea as the Degelman Speedblade (one of the sponsors of this site).

    The key to using ebay for plow equipment purchases is you need to be well educated about what you are buying and how it all goes together. Remember.. they are selling you an item at an auction they offer no support, no installation and no late not pissing an moaning your stuff doesn't work and you just paid 12,000.00 for it.

    Some stuff is better bought local. That being said I have bought a boat load of stuff off ebay.. plows, salters, cars etc. All with good luck.

    As an FYI if you sell something on ebay.. And the bidder picks it up..(not shipped) Ebay can hold your money upto 21 days.. It all depends on if the buyer gives positive fedback.. And if you buy something you at least have recourse..

    Recently bought a high trac dozer from Florida off Ebay called a local repair company to do a inspection. Found a few things that were not posted but still able to make a deal and still thousand cheaper even with the shipping. But like jlouki01 said you own it with no support! IMO I would have any used equipment inspected.

    If Hardscaper had of PM'd me back I would have bought the Storm blade for 12500, instead he plays games and annoys me. I call Rob Snyder the distributor for Team Storm because I got an email from him through Sima to call him if I had any questions. When I called he acted like he was to busy and why in the hell would I call him. Just wondering if Hardscaper is Rob? Oh well I really do like the dozen Horst blades I have.

    What do you expect from a guy using 20 year old drug dealer lines. "You got any rolling papers?"

    Strange post, I ordered two of these units from the same guy and he was very helpful. He also mentioned he still has some left if you need them.
