Why I Love Garage Sales

Postby ricky racer » Sat Aug 31, 2013 5:53 pm

I just had to share my latest garage sale finds that I picked up last weekend. I stopped at a garage sale and was looking through the collection of stuff when I came upon a pressure washer and chipper / shredder / lawn vac. Both had $20 marked on them. I quizzed the woman there about the price thinking it was priced wrong and she said, "price is correct. My husband said to get rid of them". I gave them a good once over and figured for 20 bucks, I had to get the washer. I paid her the $20 and went home to get my trailer. I came back and loaded the washer and went to look at the chipper one last time before leaving. The woman said I should get it out of there too but I told her I didn't really need it or have extra room for it. She said you can have it for $10. :shock: So after I loaded it up, I headed down the road with a big smile on my face. :)

Neither fired up when I got home. With a shot of starting fluid each fired up and ran but would not run without the fluid. It was obvious the fuel delivery was the problem on both. Today I pulled the carb off of the washer and did a through cleaning and it started an ran like a top. :wink:

Did the same thing with the chipper but it will only run with the choke on. Evidently I missed something. I'll have to go through it again and find where the blockage is. Neither of these units appear to have been used much.

I can never find yard sales like that. Great find you have there.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Way to go. I don't need either one, but at that price would have grabbed them. I have never seen anything but clothes and baby toys at yard sales around here.

If the chipper continues to give problems buy a new carb. They are not that expensive.

Rick:

If the chipper continues to give you problems, I will give you $10.00 for it :-:-): :lol: You got a nice deal on that shredder. Didn't do too bad on the power washer either.

Congrats :applause: Nice snag :D Cecil is right, those carbs aren't very expensive.

And like the others, wish I could find one cheap .... :help: :worthy:

Same here, John.

You can't just hit 1 or2 to find some good stuff. Most have mostly clothes but you never know what you'll find. I've bought 2 Cubs, a 1-1/2 hp John Deere hit & miss engine, below:

Also, front wheel weights for my Cub for $15 and many tools that I normally couldn't afford. If I'd never stopped, I'd never have known.

That is why I at least look at the yard sales. Most are as Mr. John says but, you never know.

Nice find.

There is a big difference between 'wants and needs' but who cares at that price. Maybe you should go back the 3rd time and check the hem house.
