I am just starting out with 9 accounts and the cheap "sears" trimmers are no longer holding up so well. I was wondering what everyone though of the Echo PAS system??? It would be cheaper to do this then buy all the pieces separately. Any thoughts?

thanks

TIME TIME TIME--- It is the only thing you really sell and the most important commodity and the most valuable. If it take you 2-3 min to change the thing out at every job that is 6 min a job (both ways). At 15 jobs a day that is 40 min. a day or 200 min. a week. A new trimmer is paid for in a week and a half.
The # of jobs you have today does not matter. you will fill your week in no time. Always buy equipment that saves time-- not spends it!
