It aint just you,

Leaves Suck! there is no other way of putting it.
Wet leaves, frozen temps, wind all adds up to clean-ups suck.
I like you am just tired already. Hopefully by next Wednesday we will be done.

Rates went up 25% last week. I feel a little better about that but, all day every day. They suck.. I am going to build a 3'x35' retaining wall next week and look forward to that. I've been waiting for one of these, Thank GOD !

I think that is a good ??..
I run all the echo stuff. I've done alot of research on trimmers and blowers. echo weighed out with price and quility. they are rated for 300hrs 2yr commercial. just like all the other crap. so i vote echo. and i'll by two for the price of 1 redmax. i did run redmax though. there good but to much money. aint spendin 500 on a blower thats stupid.

why do you equate owning a redmax to a f550

thats like equating an electric horse merry go-round to a horse barn.
