i paid 5k for it, its alittle pricey, but i financed it @ 5% apr for like 100 bucks a month for 40 months. i figure if it lasts me 5+ years it will be worth it.

what is its primary use (comparing to a regular back back blower) fall cleanups? long drives?

I could see us using it on some of our bike paths or road ways in parks or schools etc. but then we just run the mowers down them with the blades on and it does a good job.

Looks like a nice unit

primary use is fall cleanups, i picked this over a push blower because number 1 i dont like pushing a heavy azz blower, and 2 its faster and will save alot of time and energy.

and it will also be used for the bigger commercials we maintain to blow off the parking lots when we are done mowing, one commercial we mow takes 2 of use close 20 45 minuts when blowing off with backpacks, so im assuming this will save us some time.

and 3 i like write offs.

$5,000.00 doesnt seem all that bad when you consider Billy goats large push blower is almost 3k. Suprised its only a 14hp though.
