I mean that the truck and chipper do not look modified, beat to within an inch of it's life, and still appears to have a long service life left.
Look at the hopper of the chipper, no big dents. Look at the locker door on the truck, no dents, look at the tailgate of the truck, no dents. Look at the bottom of the fenders on the chipper, no dents. The sides of the truck do not look splayed out as when happens when craning in too big of logs.
Looks like the bumber was re-done, but the fiberglass fender has a rip. Must have been a small impact, prob. manuvering the truck in a tight area. The damage does not look like a moving accident otherwise the damage would be more to the front. But this is guessing. And fiberglass is so easy to fix, it is not a deal breaker.
Have to pop the hood and root around in there to be sure. Is the truck an auto or manual? What is the service record? I seem to remember that the seller mentioned he bought it new, that could be a big plus. Or not
Mind you, it could be that the truck was driven by desperate crank addicts on a mission with poor impulse control, and the chipper could have been used to chip old lumber with nails, pitchforks, and rocks. Hard to say without actually touching the equipment. I would tend to take the sellers word at face value if only because they are a member here, and go out and check it out. Personally.
Trucks and chippers are easy to determine their value on the open market for whatever area they are being sold in. ONly thing left is to determine accurately if the price is within that range.
Skwerl helped to sell his truck by attempting to be transparent with every detail of the truck. It worked, and the new owner seems happy.
sorry for the confusion.
