I have a Troy Bilt 21" with Honda 160 cc motor that I bought new 3 years ago and up until this year it has ran like a champ. It has somehow got demon possessed as it will start first lick and purr until you start mowing, then it starts stuttering and will continue to act evil until it starts to run out of gas then it runs great for the last few drops of gas. God forbid you try to now sideways on a hill, then it gets real ugly. If you are mechanically inclined or a priest, I'm sure you'll be just fine. If you admit to voting for Obama, the price is $200, otherwise I'll take $45 or $25 and a fifth of good bourbon.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A Norris man says he'll take $45 - or $25 and a fifth of 'good bourbon' - for his "demon-possessed" push mower.
But buyer beware: The mower is for pick up only.
"I don't want to even put it in my truck because it might take possession of that, too," the seller told us. "It's got a mind of its own."
In his Craiglist posting, the seller writes that the mower worked fine for three years until it "somehow got demon possessed." Its symptoms include stuttering and "acting evil" until it runs out of gas.
He writes, "If you are mechanically inclined or a priest, I'm sure you'll be just fine."
The seller tells us he has a buyer lined up to come take a look at it, but it's not a done deal yet. If you're in the market for a "demon-possessed" lawnmower - better keep quiet on how you voted in the last election. It turns out that's a condition of sale, too.
