Shop around for hedge clippers- good deals out there- just picked up a sweet Stihl HS81T for $200 cash off of CL. No warranty of course but I've found that on small equipment the warranty is worth what it is printed on- the dealers around here will always find a reason the warranty was voided anyway so I don't bother giving them business just for a warranty.

So today I took the truck to oreily to plug in to the computer. Looks like it should just be a loose gas cap! Ha I was excited to hear that but we will find out if that's really what it is

Sounds like an expensive Sunday! Lol I'm so happy I bought mine when I did bc I usually used a crappy ryohbi one bc I got it cheap and made lots of $$ with it ha but I was using it today and it randomly broke. So all I had to do is throw it down and go pick up the stihl ha

I tried my cg but for some reason there weren't anything except for a pawn shop selling for exact price of a new one. But that's awesome u were able to find one in your area!
