I have an opportunity to buy a 31 Ton MTD Yard Machine Log Splitter with 8 HP Honda Engine for $500. Not sure the of the year but to the best of my knowledge runs well (I will check it of course). Tires are flat and the gas tank is white. What do you guys think first of all for the price and does anyone on here have a similar one (white gas tank seems odd) and know the year. I believe the owner paid $1400 new.
