View Full Version : Got My Backpack Blower Back

I got my backpack blower back today ,after it fell off my trailer Wednesday.(see other thread-helper mess up). An honest person found it and saw my "lost" ad in the paper. I rewarded him $50. The starter recoil it broken as well as the plastic casing around the engine. Since I ordered a new on already,I'll probably fix this on and sell it. I told the helper who lost it that it was returned. He wanted to pay for the repairs but I told him no. I said you learn from your mistakes, You"ll never make this one again!

Good for you. Ever hear that virtue is its own reward? The good guys won today. I hope I can be as understanding as you when this happens to me.

So there are some good people left in the world, or did you post the reward in the lost ad too!!! You got lucky though, I guess! Congrats Bob!!

Cos, Maybe let the local shops/dealers know your are "looking " to buy a used snapper 48"wb and see if any show up. Sorry to here about your loss.

I did that and nothing. I even used look at other people cuttin grass to see if they had an old snapper 48". I cut my loses and accepted as that (a loss). we learn lifes lessons everyday, so I now just keep my eyes open when I walk in a mower shop.

Bob, you appear to be a class act, good treatment of the employee this time, not sure if it happens again though. :)
