I also use one and like it. It really is a well constructed piece. I have the Centri model. I can't say enough about it. Anthony, did you have any problems with the Honda leaking oil? Perma-Green said they had a lot of problems with them (7 out of 10 were leaking)and that's why they went with the Robin engine on the 2000 model. The newer hopper is nice, as is the centrifugal clutch.

I really believe that equipment like this will be the future for lawn care companies.

Got mine last Fall. Limited use. Prem will go down as soon as the rains stops.
Nozzles seem to need alot of attention. Hills can be a tough.

if you got the rack for the hitch...besure to use the strap to tie it down that they give you while transporting it from job to job .
