On the family farm we had a brush hog that we used once. It was way out of balance and vibrated terribly. We always said we were going to fix it, but we never got around to it. Because it was not used and stored in a shed, it looked virtually new when we sold our machinery with an auction. Someone paid almost twice as much as we paid for it new. After all, it looked clean and new. Of course, the reason it looked new is that it ran so poorly.

FYI – If anyone had asked how it ran, we would have been honest – - but no one asked.
