most of the time the warranty is NOT transferable I only know of 2 companies that allow this and you would have to have it done at a dealer.

Pretty sure its a scam of some type, I have sent an email from three different email addresses, and still have gotten nothing back, so i'm going to let that one go.

I did find a pretty nice exmark 48" walk behind for 1500 obo, hydrostatic drive, 17hp Kawasaki and floating deck

Haha, I didn't buy it, but if the price is right I would like to look at it, it comes with a sulky too.

It was a scam, here's the email reply I got.


Hi,

Thanks for being interested in buying my**2011 52" Exmark Pioneer S-Series Zero Turn & 5'X10' Dovetail Trailer C** !
I will start my email by telling you that I'm currently out of country so pick up isn't an option. Right now I'm in Italy, just arrived here 3 days ago.
Before I left I found a buyer and I had everything arranged. I paid for the shipping and almost sent it to him. But yesterday the buyer that I had asked me to wait another 4 weeks because he suddenly had other priorities and he is out of money for the moment.
I can't wait this long as I arrive in Italy 3 days ago, and i really need the money, I am in the moving process, changing the work place and everything. A major issue is that if you want to buy my item you really need to have the money ready for it.
The item is as described, in perfect condition and if you accept the deal, it will be delivered at your home address (the item remained in the custody of the shipping company only waiting for a new receiver).
Total price, with shipping included, will be $3900 and the transaction will be made only through eBay because i am not in the country anymore and this way it's safer for both (the transaction will be handled by the eBay Buyer Protection Program).
This purchase protection guarantees that the item is exactly as I described; basically, once delivered, you'll have 10 working days to inspect it at your home and if you decide not to keep it you will get refunded in no time and they will charge me with the return costs. If the item meets your expectations and you want to keep it you will have to tell them to release the payment to me. If you are interested in this purchase please reply me with your full name and shipping address. After that i will pass your details to eBay and you will receive an invoice and further instructions as how you will be able to get possession of the item .

Warmest regards

A friend of mine came across this same type of scam a few weeks ago. He found 2 free english bulldog pups on craigslist, all he had to do was send something like $500.00 to the frieght company that was holding them.

I told him if he sent the money he should never tell me because I would be laughing every time I saw him.

I've got some good deals on craigslist but if I sell it's for cash only and only buy in person.

Yeah it is crazy, but what do you do, craigslist does have some amazing deals.

Speaking of! I can't help myself, I am going to look at an exmark 52" hydro drive walk behind, listed for $1200 but I could probably talk him down!

If i can get him down to $900 I will take it in a heartbeat

Its a little rough around the edges, but doesn't look to bad, if it cuts and runs well, then i think its worth the price.

Good luck. When I was looking, I couldn't find a 36" gear drive that wasn't beat to he11 for less than $1,500.

I'm sure there are deals out there, but I sure couldn't find any.

I find a whole bunch of good deals...but they always sell them before I get to them!

This mower looks like its been put through its paces, but for a cheap price you can't beat it, at least I wouldn't have to worry about scratching it up
