How would you spend $700

1. Down Payment on New Mower
2. Stihl BG86 and BR500
3. Stihl BG86 and making a memorial for remembering my dog that we have to put down
4. Bank it

I'm leaning toward 3.

It depens how badly you need the BG86 and BR500. Personally if i didn't need them really badly i would bank it to put towards a new mower in the future. Trust me your going to need/want a new one in the future. I knew this so last year i saved as much as i could so i could pay cash for it and didn't have to take a loan, now i just need to find the right ZTR for me.

I spent my found $650 on a RedMax long reach hedge trimmer. Should make my pruning safer and much faster. Not big on graves or monuments. My lost ones, family, freinds and pets... it's just a buried body, they areen't there, but in my mind and heart, they always are ever present. The monument is huge, but it can't be seen.

Buy one blower, save the rest for more equipment.

I'm surprised no one said hookers, weed, beer, or some combination thereof!
