Bought an Echo 750T last fall. Had the Stihl, that we used before, beat all to heck. Even used it a few times on snow. What a time saver that was.

You can't charge extra because it takes you twice as long to do the job because you have crappy or outmoded equipment.

And, if they don't pay, put a shovel upside their head.
