    Forgot for those who don't know it's a towable diesel air compressor. Has a three cylinder Kubota motor and does 100 CFM at 125 PSI.

    Nice find Chris, it will be a lot easier to air the tires up on the Jeep when you're out at The Hammers...;)

    Great Deal... that will pay for itself in the first 5 minutes... it's good to give yourself a raise once and a while.
    I need to go to your auctions..:D

    It seems to me that I paid this same amount of money when I rented one to jack hammer out my concrete patio. Fantastic hit!

    Online only. Don't know why things didn't go for more. I should have bought more.

    I used to help out a friend that bought stuff at military surplus auctions getting rid of his white elephants he got when he had to buy it as a lot to get the one item he wanted.
    Amazing the things he could buy cheap.
    EG: A box full of Rolex watch parts.
    Brand new safes.
    Cases of Mobil 1 oil (paid $5.00 a case)
    Pallet loads of brand new 12 volt batteries.
    Stainless steel breaker box panels.
    Gas fire places.

    when I was in the AF, I went to the warehouse to get a package of 2 o-rings
    regular o-rings about 1" in size. someone forgot to black out the price
    each on the original invoice. I remember exactly how much to this day. it freaked me out. $23.45 2 [two] each O-ring
