2013 exmark x series 72 inch lazer with trac vac system

1 2014 exmark x series 21
1 new br 600 stihl back pack with curved tip
1 new rx 100 stihl trimmer with speed feed head
2-4 no spill gas cans depending on the day.
Stihl hand tools such as folding saw a set of loppers and hand pruners

picked a few up last fall and I liked them so much we switched completely this spring I own 5 of the 5 gallons and 4 of the 2 1/2 gallons that we use for 2 cycle. It takes longer to empty them then the old style but on the small 2 cycle stuff its not even noticeable. And we have noticed a rather massive savings in fuel this year were talking 10-15 gallons a week less. So for that amount of savings ill take the hit on an extra min to dump a 5 in to the mower.

Now, or when I started?

Big difference.


Sounds like you are just starting out from all the questions/threads posted.
What someone else has may not be realistic for you to try to "copy".
