Well I was gonna list it on craigslist - but - a guy I know said he would sort thru it and take some stuff :dizzy: - the rest goes to the City of Seattle recycle 'bin' - all fluids drained - no fishys will be harmed.

Now I know you guys keep all sorts of crap to - lets see your broken down - tired - ain't gonna ever run again - why keep it - lawn equipment.

Get the 'Sanford and Son' theme song goin' thru your head with this pic - can ya hear it?

Indeed it was - great edger - Honda 2.5hp - had one of the guys change the oil - he changed it alright - just forgot to put some back in - its been 4 yrs of robbing parts here and there off it. Bad tire - swapped out long ago.

FREE! Well it would have been this a.m. - PB400E - great little blower - used to be the cats pajamas in blowers. Siezed up years ago - by that time it was already obselete.

Trimmer gone too - Echo SRM 2601 - got dropped - shattered fins where muffler attached - great trimmers though - I still have one left - gotta be over 6 yrs old.

I don't have a nest like that. If it was junk yesterday it will still be junk today. If I can't fix it or feel it is worth getting fixed, it gets dumped. My garbage collector probably has all my 'stuff'.

I have a buddy that has a betamax video player/recorder. Anyone remember betamax? Huge machines. His still works, but... why keep it. It's like having an 8-track player in your car.

Now with all that space you gained are you going to start a new collection?

Yep - I just thru an Shin EB501 - in the shed - it still works - it just never gets used - outclassed.

The madness begins again!
