Ive been posting here on the perils of buying a TM on Craigslist. In the ad this looks like a great machine, right?

I certainly thought so until.....Im thinking......hey, they have a water softener which is a good thing. Water pond too! Wait a minute! there are two Seal A Door drapes over the waste tank (tall and regular) WHAT? they have a 45 degree fitting coming off the solution outlet. HEY! Thats my old Apex! Its actually a picture I took of my previous machine!

SCAMMER!

They will probably give you a killer deal just take out an extra 3K to pay the delivery driver when they deliver after you pay the $ because of taxes, human rights fees and notification clarification. LOL Seller having brain surgery and cannot execute deal from hospital and will be 30 days recovery.
