    "I jumped out, put my foot out, dropped and rolled and took the last picture posted on this ad. Ran to the hay barn and came back with a sprayer but it was too late"

    But that picture of it on fire was way more important than getting some water or an extinguisher....

    well, hes rude, ill tell you that. i asked if it ran, and technically it was "hot" so should he really be selling it.

    he was rude in his response.

    You'd be rude to if you just turned a 30,000 piece of equipment into a flaming POS

    He had to have insureance on it. Its a brand new machine that costs $40K i dont think you would be in the business and not have insureance on your expensive equipment.

    WELL, look on the bright side, the fire made it show up much better in the picture. and pictures sell products on the internet. look at my rear plow ad, its not on fire, and you cant see it in the pics....

    that machine is only worth what the scrap value is to him he said everything burned that was plastic but if the fire was hot enough i would bet there are no usable part on the engine either if it got back there alot. everyone should be asking how much he wants to pay to get ride of it lol

    Don't forget all the cylinders are junk too, in a fire like that the seals had to have melted. In fact any gasket or o-ring would most likely be fried.
