    Default i'm no locater

    i've seen it all,., there is a forum for everybody! well i'll get right to my reason for joining. i had to join to be able to post here. i'm about to post a for sale thread and try to sale a metrotech model 810 locater. i was happy to learn that these things are pretty valuble. i aquired mine a while back when the tennants at my rent house stiffed me for 1200.00 worth of rent and left me with a trashed out house. along with this 810 thing they left a single man 2-stroke post hole digger that won't start and 260 one foot circle concrete stepping stones and a full 16 foot trailer load of trash minus the trailer. looks like my only hopes of recovering any lost rent is to sell the 810,. unless you know anyone that wants to buy a steping stone. i contacted the lady about this stuff and she says she can't remember witch one of her live in "friends" had left it at the house. anyway...12 months have passed... it's time to sell it. i'm sorry to say i probably won't be hanging out on the forum after the thing sells but its good to know we have a bunch of fine folks probing around the ground just to protect us crazy digging people.

    It sucks getting stiffed like that.

    Post it for sale. It isn't any good unless you have both parts, the transmitter AND the receiver. Well... not true, but it helps to sell it faster.

    Post a pic of it too.

    If you cannot sell the stepping stones find the market value of them. You can then contribute them to Habitat for Humanity and at least get a tax write off.

    In many areas they offer pick up so you will not have to pay to have them hauled to a landfill. They will give you a receipt on the spot for your tax records.

    People who renovate homes do this all the time. Any working item that is not missing major parts they will take. Even your tenant's old furniture. They have their own thrift store resale centers.

    If you demo any of your places without destroying the old cabinets, doors, windows and any working refrigerators, stoves dishwashers they will come and get them all and give you a receipt for a tax write off as deduction to a charity.

    They have a resale store (they call them ReStore shops) about four or five blocks from your shop. Don't buy the wooden nickles.
