      Yeah I've been going solo all along, unless I get extremely behind and I'll have some help. But I just graduated from college in May and finally landed a job doing exactly what I want to do, so I'll be scaling back my lawn service to strictly part time. It's going to be rough at first because I've enjoyed the heck out of working for myself. I enjoy the heck out of getting out and running my equipment (toys) so I don't think I'll ever stop cutting completely. I think it's just something that's in your blood. My dad is 70 now and he got me started cutting a while back. He's retired but still gets out and does 5 yards a week in addition to his own simply because he loves doing it.

      25 is about when I starting our Lawn service. Trust me you are not old, wait till your 42. Oh course, I have had several folks much older than myself tell me I'm just a kid. I guess you are only as old as you feel, oh no, I'm in trouble lol. I did this solo for several years, and it was hard on my body. Thankfully, I have some very good help now, so I don't have to work as hard as I use to. Problem is I really enjoy the work, my body just won't let me do what I could when I was 25-30.

      Yes we have used the Shindaiwa LE-230 curved shaft. Not a good comparison because the 230 is a much smaller engine. I noticed you were born in 1984, I was a Jr. in high school, man I'm getting old, lol.

      Will do. We have two Sthil straigh shaft edgers, they have lots of power. I'm sure the new Echo does as well.

      Thanks a lot for the offers, but I think I'll pass. We like straight shaft edgers, but $250 is a good price. As far as the Trimmer, we can get them new for $329 with the Speed Feed head. Yours would be about $310 after we put the Speed Feed on it, and we won't run them without it. Thanks again, and good luck selling them.

      How much for The edger, is that the one that is a straight shaft?

      We put the Shindy Speed Feed head on all our trimmers, that's why I was asking. Let me know when you have a price. I'm not really looking for a trimmer since it's the end of the season, but if the price is right I may take it. Keep in mind we pay $329 new with the Speed Feed, they change them out for us when we buy a new on. So, I would have to spend about $35 on yours as soon as I got it. Thanks

      How much do you want for the Echo 265T? Also, what head do you have on it?

      Mine does a little but not to bad. You learn to keep your arm away from it :)Mainly the shaft between the housing and grip is where mine really gets hot.
