350 is alot on metal. With Bobcat filling orders for rental houses and dealers, I just see them putting together a 350 machine order. I will make some phone calls, we could use some used S650's...

Brickman is one of the nation's largest landscaping firms. They were pretty prevalent in the Chicago area, where I grew up, but I haven't seen much of them in Michigan.

Around here they are everywhere. They bring in Exmarks by the hundreds run them for 2 yrs then turn them in for new ones. They also buy Echo equipment by the tractor trailer load. They are a hudge company that I would love to know more of thier internal workings and reasoning behind thier choices. I also have been getting intrest from a few management companies who have been using them but are not happy with thier service, mostly snow related.
