It works excellent! Can off load a full scoop of wet stone dust or 2 1/2 scoops of mulch easily. Got it from harbor freight for $35! Worth every penny. Even if you can't get it to crank it all of it, at least you can use it to dump most. Big time saver. However, I lost the handle and can't find it. I'm just going to have to get another one...

Got my truck logoed today! Had a local company do it. I think it turned out pretty good.

Also rented a New holland skid loader and a roller the other day to do a gravel drive for my grandmother. We were going to do it in the winter before the spring rush, however the snow had a different idea.....my trucks pretending its a 2500....It did a pretty good job towing the skid loader. My brother was busy and needed his truck, so I just had to get it with mine!


I also installed a mulching kit on the toro zero turn. the manual should say "mower Deck". I'm all for following instructions, but removing and turning the whole mower upside down is hard...

I think it is the sh85, I'll check on the model tomorrow when I get my trailer. I like it! Really good for window wells, sucking up clipping, even can suck up weeds after chopping them off or pulling them out. Downside is it wears out fast... I need to replace a lot of the housing parts. The joints are worn out and the housing has a crack. The impeller often needs replaced if sucking up mulch and soil, and cannot suck up gum tree seed pods. I used mine hard though, and it needs overhauled. I would recommend it if you are doing lots of maintenance of flower beds. If you get it but end up not using it, you only paid a tiny bit extra for a hand held blower! -Tyler
