Anybody need a compressor upgrade? You might need to sell a kidney to afford it, though.

That’s a lot of blowen Charlie.

I bought this one at CPO Outlet. $7.00 shipping. I put it in the garage at the house for those times I need to blow up a car tire or need an air nailer at the house.

It’s not really clear if they are asking USA $$$$$$$. Maybe LA is not in the USA? Or maybe they just had too much Cajun pepper on their Breakfast Of Champions! };)~

I sell compressors for Atlas Copco as part of my part-time sales gig. Although we are not very competitive, I know that you can get a fully equipped, brand new Ingersoll Rand in that style, WITH an aftercooler, 10HP, 240VAC single phase for $1495. It even comes with a five year warranty.
Give me a break already…

That’s gotta be a miss print. Maybe they meant to put $2500.

I did a little looking around and I figure he just added an extra zero. But it’s still overpriced at that.

I don’t see what the big deal is – even if he did just added an extra zero – after all, zero has no value right?

Maybe he just forgot the decimal point and it is $250.00, after all, it is used.

Sharon: To the right of the decimal point it means nothing… to the left, everything!

Gus: I’d snatch it for $250, but I seriously doubt that’s the case.
