Large amount of secondhand equipment at Car boot sale Ireland

Recommended Posts

The last time I posted about this it seemed to produce a bizarre reaction from certain members on this forum but there was an unprecedented display of secondhand pro stuff there today almost all Stihl .

Some guys seemed to believe that they could be legitimate the last time , well there were at least 6 x 660s and probably 15 other pro saws there along with backpack blowers , pole saws etc . Maybe its just me but I find it unlikely that you would assemble that amount of well maintained but used pro stuff in one deal .

I don't know if any other ROI posters noticed it , it was hard to miss . He had around 2-300 electric power tools .

One of the other traders told me they were dropped by a pair of vans and the vans then drove off site .

I hadn't seen them since the last time I posted and apparently they has been raided by the Garda (Irish police) probably the motivation for the vans off site ploy .

I really hope theyre not the results of some of the crimes mentioned here but id fear its naiive not to think so to be honest .

At least they didn't seem to be doing much or any business .

Just my observations not looking for the yokel amateur lynch mob mentality that erupted the last time .

Don't really matter where as the feckers selling this 'booty' pop up all over the place.

I put up a post recently about a guy off a halting site in Mullingar who has a large collection of pro saws and power tools all up on done deal, some have Sugi bars and distinctive lanyards, my guess is they originated in the U.K.
