>> NOBODY HAS MONEY, MAN. >> NO ONE HAS MONEY. >> EVERYBODY WANTS TO TRADE. >> WE TRADE FOR A LIVING.

WE START WITH SOMETHING SMALL AND TRADE UP TO SOMETHING AMAZING. [horse neighs]

>> BUT TOGETHER, WE ALWAYS COME OUT ON TOP. [cheering] >> WE ARE THE BARTER KINGS.

[rock music] ♪ ♪ >> WE'VE BEEN TRADING SO MUCH LATELY, WE'VE BEEN RUNNING LOW

ON STARTING ITEMS. SO EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE, WE HOLD A BIG OPEN HOUSE WHERE THE PUBLIC CAN COME DOWN AND

SELL US ALL THEIR STUFF. >> WELL, THIS WILL BE PERFECT. >> THANK YOU. >> COOL, THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU SO MUCH. >> THANK YOU. YOU HAVE TO BE SMART ABOUT WHAT YOU BUY FOR STARTING ITEMS

'CAUSE YOU DON'T WANT A BUNCH OF CRAP LAYING AROUND THE WAREHOUSE. [blowing hard]

>> [laughs] >> YEAH, I'VE GOT A BOW I'M LOOKING TO SELL. WHAT DO YOU THINK?

>> UM, HOW MUCH YOU LOOKING TO GET OUT OF IT? >> 100 BUCKS. >> 100 BUCKS.

IF I BOUGHT STUFF FOR FULL VALUE, I'D NEVER MAKE A DIME. 80'S ABOUT MY MAXIMUM TODAY. YOU WANNA DO THAT?

>> DEAL. >> OKAY, COOL. BUY LOW AND TRADE HIGH. >> I HAVE THIS CAMERA.

BOUGHT IT FOR $300. >> REALLY? 300 BUCKS, HUH? WHAT DO YOU WANT TO GET FOR IT?

>> 200 AT LEAST. >> I COULD PROBABLY GIVE YOU A 150 BUCKS ON IT. >> I NEED THE MONEY, SO...

>> YEAH, YOU GOT A DEAL.

>> WE GOT A PRETTY GOOD PILE OF STUFF TODAY. >> YEAH, WE DID. >> ALL RIGHT, LET'S GET THESE

SHELVES LOADED UP. >> ALL RIGHT, I'LL COME DOWN AND GET THE NEXT LOAD. >> ALL RIGHT, MAN.

[loud crash] WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT? [rattling] >> I CAN'T GET BACK DOWN, IT'S

STUCK, MAN. >> HOLY [bleep]. THERE'S A BUNCH OF FLUID LEAKING.

>> JEEZ. IT'S LEAKING HYDRAULIC FLUID EVERYWHERE. >> DUDE, WE HAVE TO HAVE THAT

SCISSOR LIFT FOR EVERYDAY WORK, MAN. EVERYTHING WE DO EVERY DAY, WE USE THAT.

WHEN'S THE LAST TIME YOU DID ANY MAINTENANCE ON IT? >> I DIDN'T DO ANY MAINTENANCE ON IT.

>> YOU BROKE IT, YOU BARTER FOR A NEW ONE. >> AW, MAN. FINE, DONE--I'M GONNA GO GET

ONE. >> DO IT, MAN, DO IT!

>> I POSTED A DIGITAL CAMERA ON CRAIGSLIST. MAN, I GOT A LOT OF RESULTS. ONE STOOD OUT IN MY MIND THOUGH.

THIS GUY'S GOT A CUSTOM CONSTRUCTION SAWZALL. PEOPLE USE SAWZALLS FOR ALL KINDS OF DIFFERENT THINGS.

HOW YOU DOING? >> HOW YOU DOING? >> YOU MATT? >> YOU MUST BE ANTONIO.

>> I AM. >> MY NAME'S MATT. I CURRENTLY WORK CONSTRUCTION. I'M LOOKING TO CHANGE INTO A

DIFFERENT CAREER PATH. >> MIND IF WE LOOK AT THAT SAWZALL? I'D LOVE TO CHECK IT OUT.

>> YEAH, NO PROBLEM. LET'S GO CHECK IT OUT. >> ALL RIGHT. >> HERE WE GO.

>> IS THIS THE ONE I CAN PUT DIFFERENT BLADES--LIKE, CUT TILE, WOOD, STEEL? >> YEAH, JUST POP IN A DIFFERENT

BIT, YOU CAN CUT THROUGH METAL, TILE, WHATEVER YOUR PROJECT DEMANDS. [saw buzzing]

>> WORKS PRETTY GOOD. >> IS THERE ANY CHANCE I CAN CHECK OUT YOUR CAMERA? >> I TELL YOU WHAT, IT'S NOT AS

BIG, BUT IT'S AS MIGHTY AS THE SAWZALL. IT'S--UH, IT'S GOT 12.1 MEGAPIXEL.

IT'S GOT ALL YOUR ACTION FUNCTION SETS HERE. I MEAN, IT'S A GREAT LITTLE CAMERA.

>> OKAY. >> SO EXACTLY WHY ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A CAMERA? >> I'VE DONE A LOT OF

CONSTRUCTION--YOU KNOW, IT'S MADE ME A LOT OF MONEY. BUT RIGHT NOW, ACTION SPORTS PHOTOGRAPHY IS SOMETHING I'D

REALLY LIKE TO GET INTO. >> SO YOU DON'T DIG THE CONSTRUCTION FIELD AT ALL, HUH? IT'S A HARD JOB.

>> RIGHT. WELL, YOU KNOW WHAT, ANTONIO? WITH TWO JOBS THAT I COULD DO WITH THIS THING, I COULD SAVE UP

ENOUGH TO BUY A CAMERA JUST AS GOOD AS THAT ONE. >> THINK ABOUT IT. DO YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO TAKE

THIS CAMERA OUT AND START MAKING MONEY THE WAY YOU REALLY WANT TO MAKE MONEY? >> RIGHT.

AND I UNDERSTAND THAT. >> WHAT DO YOU SAY? MY CAMERA FOR YOUR SAWZALL? DO WE HAVE A DEAL?

>> I THINK WE GOT OURSELVES A DEAL. >> ALL RIGHT, MAN. I JUST TRADED A CAMERA WORTH

$150 UP TO A SAWZALL WORTH $400. THAT WAS AN EASY TRADE 'CAUSE HE REALLY, REALLY NEEDED THE DIGITAL CAMERA.

I'M OFF TO A GOOD START. I'LL BE GETTING THAT SCISSOR LIFT IN NO TIME.

>> IF ANTONIO'S GONNA KEEP BREAKING STUFF, CLEARLY I'M GONNA HAVE TO GET OUT THERE AND MAKE SOME EXTRA CASH.

I POSTED THE BOW ONLINE, AND I GOT A HIT FROM A GUY WHO HAS A DEEP FRYER THAT HE WANTS TO TRADE.

HEY, ARE YOU HAUDINE? >> YES, SIR. STEVE? I SAW STEVE'S AD. I'M GOING ON A TRIP WITH MY

BROTHER, AND I WANT TO HAVE MY OWN COMPOUND BOW. HERE'S THE FRYER, SIR. THIS IS COMMERCIAL GRADE--

INDUSTRIAL, STAINLESS STEEL. YOU CAN PUT ANY KIND OF OIL IN IT, EXCEPT FOR MOTOR OIL. >> [laughs]

>> THIS IS THE BASKET. YOU CAN THROW SOME CRAWDADS IN THERE. CHICKENS, TURKEYS, QUAILS,

SHRIMP, WHATEVER YOU WANT. >> [laughs] CAN I FIT MY PARTNER IN HERE? >> PIECE BY PIECE, MAYBE.

[laughter] >> WHO HAD THIS BEFORE? >> IT WAS JUST SOMETHING WE ENDED UP PICKING UP ON A SWAP.

>> ALMOST LIKE A TRADE. >> OF COURSE. >> SO DO YOU MIND IF WE GO TAKE A LOOK AT THAT BOW?

>> LET'S GO TAKE A LOOK AT THAT BOW. >> AWESOME, OKAY, COOL. TOP OF THE LINE COMPOUND BOW.

THE COMPANY'S BEEN AROUND FOR OVER 100 YEARS. THEY GOT A GREAT REPUTATION. THIS ONE IS KIND OF THEIR

ADVANCED MODEL. IT'S GOT 70 POUNDS OF PULL, WHICH MEANS IT'S NOT COMPETITION BUT REALLY CLOSE.

>> WOW, THERE'S QUITE A BIT OF TENSION IN HERE. >> NOW WHAT DO YOU WANT THIS THING FOR?

>> MY BROTHER INVITED ME ON A TRIP, AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I'M GONNA BE NEEDING ON IT. HOW MUCH IS THIS REALLY WORTH?

>> BOTTOM LINE, THAT THING'S WORTH ABOUT 200 BUCKS. >> YOUR 200 BUCKS AGAINST MY DEEP FRYER, 750?

WE'RE A LITTLE FAR APART. >> YOU TOLD ME YOU GOT THAT THING ON A SWAP. >> I DID GET THAT ON A SWAP.

>> SO YOU HAVE NO CASH IN THAT DEAL. THERE'S NO SKIN IN THAT GAME EXCEPT FOR WHATEVER YOU SWAPPED.

>> THAT'S TRUE. >> AND I'M BRINGING YOU A COMPOUND BOW FOR YOUR TRIP. WE HAVE A DEAL?

>> YOU GOT YOURSELF A DEAL. >> AWESOME. I JUST TRADED A COMPOUND BOW WORTH $200 UP TO A PRESSURE

FRYER WORTH $750. >> I'M HAPPY WITH THE TRADE BECAUSE I GOT SOMETHING I NEEDED, AND I DIDN'T HAVE TO PAY

CASH.

[rattling] >> AAH! [phone ringing] >> WHAT'S HAPPENING?

>> HEY, MAN. WE HAVE CRAP PILING UP ALL OVER THE WAREHOUSE THAT NEEDS TO GO UP ON SHELVES, EVERYWHERE.

WE NEED THAT SCISSOR LIFT. >> I'M WORKING ON IT. I GOT IT UNDER CONTROL. >> YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE BROKE THAT

SCISSOR LIFT IN THE FIRST PLACE, MAN. >> I DIDN'T BREAK THE SCISSOR LIFT, MAN.

IT JUST HAPPENED TO BREAK WHILE I WAS ON IT. >> JUST MAKE IT HAPPEN, BROTHER. WE NEED ONE MORE THAN YOU KNOW.

>> THIS SAWZALL IS BECOMING A MAJOR PAIN IN MY BUTT. >> CAN YOU THROW ANYTHING ELSE IN OR SWEETEN THE POT?

YOU GOT MAYBE SOME DRILLS OR--? >> I DON'T. THAT'S ALL I BROUGHT WITH ME. >> I THINK I CAN HONESTLY GET A

BETTER DEAL. >> THERE'S NO WAY, HUH? >> NO. >> I SAW YOUR AD ONLINE ABOUT

THE SAWZALL. I BROUGHT IN THIS SUBWOOFER. >> I HAVE A TON OF 12-INCH SUBWOOFERS, THEY'RE JUST A

DIME A DOZEN FOR ME. >> IT WASN'T EXACTLY WHAT I WAS EXPECTING. >> I THINK THAT'S MY BIGGEST

CONCERN RIGHT THERE. >> IF I DON'T TRADE UP WITH THIS SAWZALL, I'M GONNA BE STUCK IN IT, SO I GOTTA MAKE SOMETHING

HAPPEN FAST.

I FINALLY HEARD FROM A GUY WHO SAID HE HAD SOME LAWNMOWERS TO TRADE. I GOTTA MAKE THIS WORK.

>> ANTONIO. >> YEAH. >> HOW YOU DOING? THIS IS MY DAUGHTER, HAILEE.

>> HI. >> HI, HAILEE, HOW ARE YOU? >> I RECENTLY GOT LAID OFF, AND I THOUGHT, WITH A SAWZALL, I

COULD GO OUT AND DO SOME OTHER STUFF IN THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY. >> LIKE I SAID, IT'S ALMOST

BRAND-NEW. [buzzing] LIKE BUTTER, RIGHT? YOU CAN GET A LONG ENOUGH BLADE,

IT'LL CUT THAT TREE DOWN. >> YEAH, IT LOOKS PRETTY NEW. >> WHICH LAWNMOWER WERE YOU INTERESTED IN TRADING FOR IT?

>> I'D BE INTERESTED IN TRADING THAT PUSH MOWER RIGHT THERE. >> THAT? THAT DOESN'T EVEN LOOK LIKE IT

RUNS. >> OH, IT RUNS. YOU WANNA HEAR IT? >> NO, IT LOOKS LIKE IT MIGHT

BLOW UP. >> YEAH, WE TALKED ON THE PHONE. I TOLD YOU I HAD A FUNCTIONING MOWER.

>> YOU DIDN'T TELL ME IT WAS 10- TO 12-YEARS-OLD FUNCTIONING. THAT WOULD BE MORE LIKE WHAT I'D BE INTERESTED IN TRADING FOR MY

SAWZALL. I'D BE WILLING TO TRADE SOMETHING LIKE THIS. >> THERE'S NO WAY.

>> LOOK, YOU BUY, SELL, AND FIX UP TRACTORS. HOW MUCH MONEY DO YOU ACTUALLY HAVE INTO THIS ONE?

>> I BOUGHT HER FOR 100. $50 IN PARTS. >> SO THAT'S 150 BUCKS YOU'RE INTO THIS TRACTOR, RIGHT?

>> YEAH, BUT THERE'S NO DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT'S AN $800 TRACTOR, AND THIS IS A $400 TOOL, MAN.

>> THERE'S NO DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT'S AN $800 TRACTOR, AND THIS IS A $400 TOOL, MAN. >> WELL, $800 IS WHAT YOU'RE

SELLING IT FOR, BUT THAT'S NOT WHAT YOU GOT INTO IT. >> I DON'T KNOW, MAN. >> EXACTLY WHY ARE YOU

INTERESTED IN A SAWZALL? >> WELL, I'M IN CONSTRUCTION. I'M KIND OF IN BETWEEN JOBS RIGHT NOW.

I FIGURED I'D BETTER LEARN ANOTHER TRADE IN CONSTRUCTION, SO I WAS THINKING ABOUT CARPENTRY.

>> YOU KNOW WHAT, YOU CAN TRADE ME THAT SAWZALL, YOU CAN GET BACK INTO THE CONSTRUCTION BUSINESS.

I THINK THAT'S A FAIR TRADE. >> WELL, NOW THAT YOU PUT IT THAT WAY... YEAH.

>> ALL RIGHT. I JUST TRADED A SAWZALL UP TO A RIDING LAWNMOWER. [cash register dings]

>> ANTONIO'S RIGHT. WITH THIS SAW, I COULD PROBABLY BE MAKING A LOT MORE MONEY THAN IF I SOLD THIS MOWER.

>> I'LL BE GETTING THAT SCISSOR LIFT IN NO TIME.

>> I JUST TRADED UP TO A DEEP FRYER, AND A GOOD TRADER ALWAYS TESTS HIS ITEM. SO I'M GONNA CLEAN THIS THING UP

AND THEN TEST IT OUT. IN THIS CASE, NOTHING COULD BE SWEETER. >> WHAT IS THIS THING, A

JACUZZI? >> THAT'S A DEEP FRYER, MAN. >> WOW, YOU EVER HAD DEEP-FRIED TWINKIES?

>> THAT'S WHAT I'M MAKING. >> ARE YOU SERIOUS? >> YEAH. I KNOW YOU GREW UP AT THE COUNTY

FAIR, I CAN TELL. >> YEAH, YOU COULD TELL, RIGHT? >> WHY DON'T YOU HELP OUT? HOW'S THAT?

>> YEAH, LET'S FRY A TWINKIE UP.

>> OH, LOOK AT THAT. WHOO! I CAN TRADE ANYTHING AND FRY ANYTHING. THIS FRYER IS ABSOLUTELY

PERFECT. IT WORKS PERFECT, IT COOKS PERFECT, AND I'M GONNA USE THIS THING TO MAKE A HUGE JUMP UP ON

MY NEXT TRADE. >> THAT'S A GOOD TWINKIE.

I STARTED WITH A BOW, AND I TRADED THAT TO A DEEP FRYER, ON MY WAY UP TO SOMETHING THAT I COULD SELL FOR CASH.

I POSTED THIS DEEP FRYER ON CRAIGSLIST. I GOT A RESPONSE FROM A GUY WHO HAS A GO-KART THAT HE WANTS TO

TRADE. I SAW A PICTURE OF THIS GO-KART ONLINE, AND THIS THING LOOKS INCREDIBLE.

ARE YOU TOM? >> YEAH. >> HEY, STEVE. >> STEVE.

>> I'M INTERESTED IN TAKING A LOOK AT STEVE'S DEEP FRYER BECAUSE WE ARE BUILDING AN OUTDOOR KITCHEN.

>> I'M ASSUMING THAT'S NOT IT, HUH? >> THIS WOULD BE THE GO-KART. >> WOW, MAN.

>> I ACTUALLY DID A REBUILD ON IT A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO. IT HAS A SIX-SPEED LINEAR SHIFTER.

IT SHIFTS JUST LIKE A MOTORCYCLE. IT'LL GO ABOUT 85 MILES AN HOUR. >> THIS THING IS AWESOME.

>> TAKE IT FOR A TEST DRIVE. >> ALL RIGHT, LET'S DO IT, TOM. I CANNOT WAIT TO GET BEHIND THE WHEEL OF THIS GO-KART.

OH, DAMN! >> YEAH, IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE TIGHT. IT'S ALL RIGHT, YOU CAN GET IN

THERE. THIS THING IS VERY FAST, BE CAREFUL WITH IT. >> CAREFUL'S MY MIDDLE NAME.

[engine revs] WHOO! OH, DAMN! >> CRANK IT UP!

>> DAMN, DOG! >> ALL RIGHT. PRETTY COOL, HUH? >> THIS THING'S BAD-ASS!

HOLY SMOKES. >> WELL, NOW THAT I KNOW YOU LIKE THIS THING, LET'S LOOK AT WHAT YOU GOT.

WHOA. >> I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS. I'M TAKING THIS THING OFF THE TRAILER, AND I BREAK THE HINGE

ON THE DOOR. >> AW, [bleep]! >> I THOUGHT YOU SAID THIS THING WAS NICE!

WHAT'S GOING ON WITH THE DOOR? >> I JUST--THE HINGE BROKE WHEN I ROLLED IT OFF THAT THING. SO I WILL--UH, I WILL MAKE SURE

THAT IS FIXED. AND IT'S JUST THIS HINGE RIGHT HERE. >> I DON'T KNOW.

LOOK AT THE CONDITION HERE... AND LOOK AT THE CONDITION OF THAT. >> HAVE YOU TRIED TO SELL THAT?

>> OH, YEAH. >> FOR HOW LONG? >> A YEAR. >> SO WHAT'S YOUR PLANS WITH

THAT IF WE DON'T DO THIS TRADE? ARE YOU GONNA TRY TO GET 2 GRAND FOR A 17-YEAR-OLD KART? >> I'LL TRY.

>> AND THEN YOU'RE GONNA TRY TO BUY A FRYER AFTER THAT. YOU KNOW THEY RANGE FROM 6 TO 9 GRAND BRAND-NEW.

WHAT DO YOU SAY, TOM? >> IT'S GOT ALL THE BELLS AND WHISTLES. I'D BE THE ONLY ONE IN THE

NEIGHBORHOOD WITH ONE LIKE THIS. [deep breath] ALL RIGHT, STEVE. >> I JUST WENT FROM A DEEP FRYER

WORTH $750 TO A GO-KART WORTH $1,200. [cash register dings] >> IT DOESN'T LOOK THE WAY I

WANT, BUT THIS THING IS A NICE, BIG DEEP FRYER. >> BEAUTIFUL.

>> I STARTED WITH A DIGITAL CAMERA, TRADED UP TO A SAWZALL, TRADED THAT FOR A RIDING LAWNMOWER, AND I MADE A QUICK

TRADE UP TO A PITCHING MACHINE. >> SO IF WE ACTUALLY GET THIS, WOULD YOU MOW THE LAWN? >> YEAH.

>> WE GOT A DEAL? >> WE GOT A DEAL. >> WHAT ARE YOU DOING? >> DUDE, THAT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE

A SCISSOR LIFT. >> I KNOW, LET'S JUST TEST IT OUT. I BET I COULD BEAT YOU IN

BASEBALL. >> YOU DON'T HAVE TO CHALLENGE ME TO THIS COMPETITION, THIS IS ON.

LET ME SHOW YOU HOW A REAL ATHLETE HITS A BASEBALL. >> [laughs] >> OH, YOU SUCKER, MAN!

>> [laughs] YOU ALMOST HIT YOURSELF, KID! >> LET'S SEE HOW YOU DO. COME ON!

PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE THE MOUTH IS, MAN. ARE YOU READY? >> YEAH!

[grunts] YOU JUST TURNED IT UP, [bleep]! >> I DIDN'T DO ANYTHING. >> [laughs] YOU [bleep]ING LIAR.

OH-HO-HO-HO! >> HA! >> YEAH! THAT'S HOW WE DO IT IN THE HIGH

DESERT! HEY, MAN, WHAT WILL YOU DO WITHOUT ME ON THE NEXT TRADE WHEN YOU CAN'T DEMONSTRATE THIS

THING, MAN? >> YEAH, RIGHT.

>> I POSTED MY GO-KART ONLINE, AND I GOT A HIT FROM A GUY THAT'S GOT A DANCE DANCE REVOLUTION ARCADE MACHINE.

THIS DANCE DANCE REVOLUTION MACHINE MIGHT BE THE PERFECT THING I COULD BRING BACK TO THE SHOP BECAUSE I KNOW SOMEBODY WHO

LOVES TO DANCE, AND IT AIN'T ME. HEY, ARE YOU JOHN? >> HOW YOU DOING? >> GOOD, HOW ARE YOU, MAN?

>> I'M INTO ALL KINDS OF MOTORSPORTS. I HAVE A NEED FOR SPEED, AND A GO-KART'S SOMETHING THAT I DON'T

HAVE IN MY COLLECTION. >> WELL, DUDE, YOU GOTTA TELL ME ABOUT THIS MACHINE, MAN. WHAT'S THE STORY, MAN?

YOU DON'T LOOK LIKE A DANCER, NO OFFENSE. >> I ACTUALLY BOUGHT IT FOR A GIRLFRIEND.

WE'VE BROKEN UP, LIKE, TEN TIMES. SO THIS THING HAS, LIKE, ZERO SENTIMENTAL VALUE TO ME.

>> YOU MIND SHOWING ME HOW THIS THING WORKS? >> ALL RIGHT. SO YOU'RE GONNA START IN THE

MIDDLE, MUSIC'S GONNA COME ON. THEN FOLLOW THE PROMPTS. [funky disco music] ♪ ♪

>> THAT'S PRETTY COOL. >> YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO GET UP HERE AND DO THIS. [music stops]

>> THERE'S NO WAY I'M GETTING UP ON THAT THING. I'M NOT A DANCER. I'M GONNA GO GRAB THAT GO-KART.

SOUND COOL? >> YEAH, ABSOLUTELY. [engine revving] >> WHAT DO YOU THINK, MAN?

IT'S AN 80cc ENGINE, ALL RIGHT? THIS THING'LL DO 100-PLUS, MAN. >> 100-PLUS? >> 100-PLUS.

TEST THIS THING OUT, MAN. >> OH, MAN. THIS THING IS BUILT FOR, LIKE, A LITTLE GIRL.

>> [grunts] OH, I'M NOT GONNA BE ABLE TO GET IN. >> NOT AT ALL?

>> NAW.

>> YIKES. >> IF I GET IN, THIS THING'S GONNA BE PERMANENTLY ATTACHED TO ME.

[grunts] OH, MAN. [sighs] YEAH, IT'S A TIGHT FIT.

>> I KNOW SEATS ARE CHEAP. I KNOW THEY'RE LESS THAN 85 BUCKS. >> WOULD YOU BUY SOMETHING THAT

YOU COULDN'T FIT INTO? I BOUGHT THAT THING AT AN AUCTION, AND I KNOW WHAT I PAID. >> RIGHT.

>> AND I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT ON A TRADE, I'M GETTING SOMETHING OF, YOU KNOW, FAIR VALUE.

>> IF YOU DON'T TRADE FOR THIS, YOU GOTTA FIND SOMEONE THAT HAS A GO-KART FOR TRADE, THEN YOU GOTTA FIND SOMEONE THAT'S GONNA

WANT TO TAKE YOUR DANCE DANCE REVOLUTION MACHINE TOO... >> YEAH. >> ALL IN ONE TRANSACTION.

ALL WE'RE TALKING ABOUT IS GOING OUT AND GETTING A SEAT AND FLOPPING IT IN HERE, AND YOU GOT THE PERFECT GO-KART FOR YOU.

WHAT DO YOU SAY, MAN? MY GO-KART FOR YOUR DANCE MACHINE, MAN. WE HAVE A DEAL?

>> IT WOULD FEEL GOOD TO GET THAT THING OUT OF MY LIFE. YOU KNOW, I LIKE THE KART. I CAN GET THE SEAT FIGURED OUT.

WE GOT A DEAL. >> AWESOME, MAN. I JUST TRADED A GO-KART TO A DANCE DANCE REVOLUTION MACHINE.

[cash register dings] >> GETTING ON THAT KART AND BEING ABLE TO GO 100 MILES AN HOUR IS GONNA BE THE THRILL OF A

LIFETIME. >> THAT'S PERFECT. I STARTED WITH A COMPOUND BOW, AND I TRADED UP TO A DEEP FRYER.

I TRADED THAT FOR A GO-KART, ALL THE WAY UP TO AN AWESOME DANCE DANCE REVOLUTION MACHINE. I SHOULD BE ABLE TO SELL THIS

MACHINE FOR SOME BIG-TIME CASH, BUT FIRST THINGS FIRST. WHY NOT HAVE A LITTLE FUN WITH IT?

YOU KNOW, ONE THING PEOPLE MIGHT NOT KNOW IS, ANTONIO HAS AN INTERESTING HISTORY AS A "PROFESSIONAL DANCER."

>> HELLO? >> HEY, MAN, I TRADED FOR SOMETHING THAT'S GONNA MAKE YOU WANNA DUST OFF YOUR '80s DANCE

MOVES. >> WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT, MAN? >> JUST GET BACK TO THE SHOP.

AND WHATEVER IT TAKES, GET THAT SCISSOR LIFT. >> COME ON, MAN, I'LL BE BACK THERE SOON.

>> ALL RIGHT, MAN, SEE YOU IN A BIT.

>> I POSTED THE PITCHING MACHINE ON CRAIGSLIST, AND I GOT A HIT FROM A GUY NAMED CHRIS, WHO'S GOT A SCISSOR LIFT.

IF I CAN MAKE THIS TRADE GO DOWN, I'VE GOT A NEW SCISSOR LIFT FOR THE SHOP WITHOUT PAYING A DIME.

YOU CHRIS? >> YES, I AM. >> I'M ANTONIO. >> ANTONIO, NICE TO MEET YOU.

ANTONIO CONTACTED ME, WANTING TO TRADE A PITCHING MACHINE FOR A SCISSOR LIFT FROM MYSELF. I'M INTERESTED IN THE PITCHING

MACHINE TO DONATE IT TO A LOCAL YOUTH SOFTBALL LEAGUE. >> SO THAT'S THE SKYJACK, HUH? >> YEAH.

MOST PEOPLE USE THEM FOR PAINTING, INSULATION. NOBODY LIKES TO USE LADDERS ANYMORE; THEY'RE LAZY.

>> THING LOOKS PRETTY CLEAN. DOES IT WORK? >> WELL, GET UP ON TOP OF IT AND TRY IT OUT.

>> AW, MAN, I'M TERRIFIED OF HEIGHTS, BUT IF I'M GONNA GET MY SCISSOR LIFT, I CAN'T SHOW ANY FEAR.

>> OKAY, THAT'S "UP." >> THAT'S PRETTY HIGH. >> WHAT, ARE YOU SCARED? >> NO, I'M NOT SCARED.

HOW HIGH DOES IT GO UP? >> 21 FEET. >> THAT WOULD BE A LITTLE SCARY. [bleep].

THAT'S HIGH ENOUGH. IT'S A LITTLE WOBBLY. I CONQUERED THE SCISSOR LIFT. NOW LET'S JUST SEE IF I CAN

CONQUER THIS DEAL. THIS IS A TOP-OF-THE-LINE PITCHING MACHINE. SO IT'S GOT DUAL-SPEED CONTROLS

THAT'LL GO UP TO 100 MILES AN HOUR. THEY DON'T COME ANY BETTER THAN THIS.

WHY EXACTLY DO YOU WANT THIS THING? >> WELL, I WAS THINKING ABOUT DONATING IT TO A SOFTBALL

GIRLS LEAGUE HERE IN TOWN. THEY'RE NOT DOING TOO WELL MONEY-WISE, SO I FIGURED I COULD HELP THEM OUT A LITTLE BIT.

I USUALLY GET 3 GRAND OUT OF THESE MACHINES. YOUR LITTLE PITCHING MACHINE-- I'LL BE HONEST WITH YOU, I DON'T

THINK IT'S WORTH MORE THAN A GRAND. >> A GRAND? THESE THINGS ARE 2,500 TO 3,000 NEW.

>> IT AIN'T NEW. >> AND HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE GONNA COME BY AND WANNA TRADE YOU A BASEBALL PITCHING MACHINE FOR A

SCISSOR LIFT? YOU DON'T WANNA HAVE TO PULL OUT MONEY AND BUY ONE OF THESE THINGS.

MONEY'S TOUGH RIGHT NOW, YOU KNOW? >> I AGREE WITH THAT. >> AND I'M COMING HERE WITH A

TRADE SO THAT YOU DON'T HAVE TO PUT ANY MONEY OUT OF YOUR POCKET. YOU COULD DONATE THIS TO THEM,

LOOK LIKE A HERO. CAN YOU DONATE THE SCISSOR LIFT TO THEM? YOU CAN'T.

COME ON, CHRIS, LET'S GET THOSE GIRLS A NEW PITCHING MACHINE. DO WE HAVE A DEAL? >> MONEY'S TIGHT, LIKE YOU SAID.

I'M JUST TRYING TO HELP THEM OUT, YOU KNOW, SO THEIR PARENTS DON'T HAVE TO TAKE THE MONEY OUT OF THEIR POCKET TO BUY THEM ONE.

WE GOT A DEAL. >> ALL RIGHT. RIGHT ON. I JUST TRADED A PITCHING MACHINE

FOR A SCISSOR LIFT. [cash register dings] ALL RIGHT, MAN. >> LOOKS GOOD, MAN.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >> THANK YOU. >> ALL RIGHT. >> I STARTED WITH A DIGITAL

CAMERA, TRADED UP TO A SAWZALL, TRADED THAT FOR A RIDING LAWNMOWER, UP TO A PITCHING MACHINE, AND FINALLY TO AN

AWESOME SCISSOR LIFT TO REPLACE THE ONE THAT I BROKE.

>> DUDE. I CAN'T BELIEVE ANTONIO DID IT. >> I TRADED FOR A SCISSOR LIFT. >> WHAT IS IT, A 25-FOOT?

>> 21 FEET. >> 21 FEET, DUDE! I GOTTA ADMIT, MAN... I'M IMPRESSED WITH THIS ONE.

>> SO WHAT DID YOU TRADE UP TO? >> WHEN YOU SEE WHAT I GOT, YOU'LL BE DANCING IN ONE PLACE, BRO.

I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE HIS EYES LIGHT UP. ALL RIGHT, MR. FANCY PANTS! >> AW, MAN!

>> SHOW ME YOU CAN DANCE! [laughter] >> A DANCE DANCE REVOLUTION. YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME!

>> COME ON, MAN. I KNOW YOU USED TO DANCE, NOW YOU CAN PROVE IT. >> YEAH, BUT NOTHING LIKE THIS.

BACK IN THE LATE '80s, I DANCED FOR CHIPPENDALES, BUT I LEFT MY DIRTY DANCING DAYS BEHIND ME. >> I HAPPEN TO HAVE A DANCE

REVOLUTION MACHINE HERE. YOU HAPPEN TO DANCE. >> I WAS A MALE STRIPPER, NOT A DANCE REVOLUTION DANCER.

>> [laughs] >> STEVE, I'M NOT GONNA DANCE, MAN. >> DUDE, ONCE YOU FEEL THE BEAT,

YOU'RE GONNA START MOVING YOUR FEET. [funky disco music] >> MAN, I DON'T KNOW IF I CAN DO

THAT. ♪ ♪ >> [laughs] DUDE, YOU MADE MONEY AT THIS?

SERIOUSLY? >> MAN, THIS AIN'T DANCING. THIS IS DANCING, MAN. >> AW, COME ON, MAN.

♪ ♪ >> WHEN I AUDITIONED FOR CHIPPENDALES, THEY DIDN'T EVEN KNOW I HAD TOURETTE'S.

THEY JUST THOUGHT I HAD SUPER-COOL DANCE MOVES. WIGGLE, WIGGLE, WIGGLE, WIGGLE, WIGGLE, WIGGLE, WIGGLE!

>> I'M GONNA MAKE YOU FEEL RIGHT AT HOME. >> [laughs] >> COME OVER HERE, BABY.

>> GET OUTTA HERE! >> COME ON! IF I CAN'T SELL THIS DDR MACHINE, IT'S OKAY.

ANTONIO CAN EARN US THE CASH BACK ONE SWEATY DOLLAR AT A TIME. >> YOU'RE KILLING ME, BRINGING
