yea some people dont understand the work smarter not harder logic, fact is i hate push blowers, infact i hate them with a passion. im entirely too fat to be pushing a 75 pound push blower with 3 inch wheels around all my yards.

And like i stated earlier, had the guy from new jersey who clearly cant read noticed, i also have a toro groundsmaster with an olathe blower on it. which will blow anything and everything my litte heart desires. this machine has a totaly diffrent use for me. My toro is big and goofy and doesnt fit into alot of places, such as smaller fences, tennis courts (4 of the houses i mow have tennis courts on the property), will also be used on my commercial accounts that usualy take us 45 minuts to blow off with backpacks ECT....

so weather or not YOU think its worth 5k is of no interest to me because you clearly dont have a use for it. i however have plenty of uses for a blower like this and will use the crap out of it.

That is pretty sharp. I was looking at a BillyGoat Force wheel blower with a 9hp Honda. Probably over kill for me, but I have a lot of fall clean up.
