Brad, hows the PB-250 treat you? I'm thinking of picking one or two of them up for tight areas and where a backpack isn't needed.

Why change what's working for him?? Honda makes great 21s and Echo makes top notch handhelds and owns Shindaiwa.

I will live by the honda push mowers, I have tried alot of others and nothing has ever compared to the ones I have. Echo I like and have a good dealer the only other close dealer is stihl. Echos work great for me I just have to deal with carb issues here n there but its not to bad

You don't have a picture of the plug in on your spreaders do you? I got myself a spreader but it has no plugs on it, so I'm looking to wire up some sort of plug on it, but not sure what I wanna go with. Or wire size.

Dear god lol. Just spent the past 5 days going through your thread. Not skipping a single page.

You are definitely a good example for new guys trying to get into the industry. Looking at your work has taught me a thing or two and watching your fleet grow has given me a better idea on what I want to get two. Going the route of getting a dump trailer then the dump is definitely the way I plan to go now.
