But they keep getting lighter, and more fuel efficient. Everyone is different, but we like to keep new stuff verse trying to make one last for 10 years. I feel it looks better to the customer also when you pull up with new stuff every couple of years.

It just isn't true at all that stuff won't last for a long time. And the technology hasn't changed hardly at all except those 4 mix which are loser technolgy. I wish I could get all this stuff you guys throw away because I am getting 7 - 10 years of of stuff. And buying leading edge stuff can burn a person(i.e. BR600 blower). Oh I am Echo guy.
