+1, if it can’t run that’s a good thing if you know how to fix anything that might be wrong. Sure the motor could be burned out, but that’s almost never the case and if it were there are many tell tale signs letting you know. I bought a big Ingersoll Rand compressor for $50 because the motor was burned out, the owner had misdiagnosed it, I had to replace the pressure switch and it was up and running.

Number 1, never buy anything that you can t hear running. Number 2, it s a craftsman, Number 3, never buy anything that you can t hear run

Opposite for me… unable to run is a great negotiation point and 99.9% of the time it s something stupid simple to fix.
