Looked like a nice tractor to me! A little rough for only 11 hours but the price is real good. I wonder who owns it?

I've never dealt with Ebay, so I don't know much about how it all works. That sure seems like way too much for way too little, I'd be pretty cautious. Frank.

Agree with Ken, although E-bay is not the problem. It's the people who use E-bay that you have to watch.

E-bay is used by crooks to unload stolen items. I have personal experience with stolen bicycles being subsequently offered for sale on E-bay as "good deals."

The usual caution applies: Let the buyer beware.

I have never used e-bay before, but I always go by the rule of thumb that if it looks too good to be true it probably is.

I've been watching ebay for a certain kind of motorcycle. One was listed in Canada from somebody with no feedback with a "Buy-It-Now" of about half of what the going price is. He didn't get any bids and eventually the ad was pulled (don't know if ebay pulled it, or he stopped the auction).

This one looks like a "too good to be true" deal. It is always possible that stolen items are being sold as well.

I've bought quite a bit of stuff from ebay, including parts for my tractor restoration projects, and have had only one bad experience...lost $5. You can save a bunch of money if you're careful.

Good luck,
Bill

I’ve used eBay quite a bit, both selling and buying. You have to use the same degree of caution that you would use at any auction, or buying from any private party. Or, maybe slightly more caution, due to the seller’s unanimity.

For this item I wouldn’t be so concerned with the starting price being so low. It’s typical in this sort of auction to “start low, so you can sell high”. It’s a way of gaining bidder interest. The thing that would concern me is that it appears to be the first item ever sold by this seller. So, no seller feedback.

If someone were truly interested in bidding on it, I would email the seller with a barrage of questions. Starting with “Where did YOU buy it? What’s the dealer’s name? Etc. that way you can checkup on the seller a bit, to determine if it’s legit.

On a deal like this I'd ask for the machine and engine serial numbers and run them through police records (and Kubota, not sure if they track serial numbers like Deere). I'd also want to go there to see it in person and to close the deal. If you start making noises about the serial numbers my guess is that you won't become an "approved" bidder.

eBay usually has something called a reserve, the seller specifies the starting bid and the reserve amount. The reserve is the minimum price the seller will let the item go for. If the bids go over the reserve amount the seller must accept the bid, if not they do not have to sell it.

I would think the reserve on this has to be around $13000 + US. Nonetheless this guy just has the one machine on eBay and unless you are in Canada and can see it first, it is along shot.

Guys,
This is a probably a scam. I deal alot with ebay with autos. When you see the auctions asking for pre approved bidders only, you will usually be asked to place a deposit on the item and then never see yor money again. These type of auction sales usually are for cars and motorcycles. One that I have personally delt with was for a classic corvette that actually had a riduciously low buy it now price. The seller usually has no feedbacks. An email to ebay to check into such auctions will usually end up with the auction disappearing rather quickly. Also you will usually find on a scam auction that the item is not in the US. I would stay away from this one.
John
