Looking for a new Blower?

I have several BRAND NEW RedMax backpack blowers for sale. New in box Redmax ebz 8500. (that's right 8500, not the same as 8000, 8001 or 8050) This is the biggest and baddest blower ever made to date, yet it is significantly lighter than before. Check out the other posts on here. Most dealers don't even have these available yet in St. Louis. These have a full commercial use warranty through June of 2013.

Check them out:
Red Max Web Site. http://www.redmax.com/node3937.aspx?pid=377443
Read this review:
http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=342261&page=5

We have been using the 8500 series blowers for several weeks now and love them so we are selling off the old stuff too. RedMax 8000 series priced $300-400.

Call or message me for more information.

I know this is a slow reply to this post but just had to after seeing it.
Officially, we have never bought from Hansens and do not work with St Louis Composting any longer. We make most all of our own mulches here at Fick Supply, therefore the best quality you can find in St. Louis.
Thank you.

And I thought ballwin was a good neighborhood.
That sucks that you gotta lock your stuff just to go around to the back of a place!

Sorry to hear that.

The other day we were at our dealer and someone had just had their entire trailer with equipment stolen.

We have an enclosed trailer and shut and lock the door on many of our accounts now after losing 2 trimmers and a blower last spring

I just bought a new aerator and was wondering if any one ever subs out their aeration's? I would be able to possibly sub out some tree work.

Are you guys seeing a lot of $35 aeration signs? I'm trying to get almost double that. These signs aren't going to help.

I was leaving my jobsite and saw a guy that had $40.00 aertion on his backwindow. I thought how the hell is he advertising this. What size lawn is this? I hate seeing it, but if people want to give thier time away so be it. Unfortunately it hurts a lot of other people.

I see a few of these signs every year, and every year I do aeration for about twice the price. It is not any different than when you see tires on sale for 49.00, but of course the tires at that price only fit on yugos.

It does not hurt anyone, just like the fact that McDonald's has a dollar menu does not stop the businesses that sell real food from charging $25.00 a plate.

All over town you see outrageous low prices but the product or service is pathetic and a waste of money. People know this.

And of course there are some guys out there trying to make a little beer money but that does not cut into the real market. They just do not do that much work, and luckily we are not flooded with them the way some other areas are.

The good news is that there is going to be a lot of demand for aeration, overseeding, lawn renovation and sod.
