Questions and AnswersQuestions and Answers
Q: The climate controls don’t work and the engine oil is below the add mark with a low oil pressure light on when running. Will those things be looked into or is it sold as is? Thank you (6/26/20 1:23 PM)
A: Top off all fluids. No other repairs done. Equipment will be sold as is. (6/29/20 8:21 AM)
Q: Is the previous question a valid question that is factual about oil and controls or a red herring to discourage others from bidding? Your description says controls work. Please clarify. (6/29/20 1:25 PM)
A: The climate controls do not work. We were unaware of that until the previous person came to view the piece of equipment in person. We will not be getting those repaired. As far as the actual controls for the equipment itself, those are fully operational. All oil levels were checked and topped off as needed. (6/29/20 1:45 PM)
Q: After topping off the oil levels, did the low oil pressure light go out? (6/30/20 6:52 AM)
A: Yes, the low pressure light went off. (6/30/20 3:37 PM)
Q: Do you have any video of the machine in operation? (7/1/20 8:44 AM)
A: Yes, we just got the videos uploaded to YouTube today. (7/1/20 10:09 AM)
Q: cant find video on youtube (7/4/20 6:04 PM)
A: I just went and checked and was able to view the video. Please let me know if you still have issues. (7/6/20 8:20 AM)
