    I use 2401's.. but next season im most likely getting all new kawasaki's or redmax 2601's the 2401's are terrible so many problems with the carbs one of mine is usually out not working atleast once a month so im fed up with them.

    Just got one of these at work and I cant stand it. To the point that I will not use it, I still use the older 8050. The new design of the back pad is so dumb. It is way to small to even be remotely comfortable. I couldnt believe how small they made it. I also dont like how much bigger the tube is because I hold the tube when blowing instead of the handle.

    I have no idea what the obsession is with programmers on diesel trucks. I pull a fully loaded enclosed trailer just fine. I could understand if you had to pull a skid steer around all day you would want the extra power, but for the occasional heavy load I'm fine with stock. Something inside of my cringes every time I have to overwork my truck, I couldn't imagine wanting to put even more strain on it. Show me a truck with as many miles as mine that has had a programmer on it. If I was a betting man I would say the truck would be worn out and ready to retire

    What height are you cutting at now, in that last house?

    Programmers are big around here among my friends because about 70% of them are young men who are into the trades. They don't actually work the trucks, they use the programmers on the economy setting to save fuel. We also go to car/truck meets and rolling coal is a fun thing to watch. And we run the trucks at the drags sometimes so the extreme settings are fun for that.

    They definitely can not make your motor last any longer than normal, that is for certain. People like us who haul all day every single day don't need the added strain on the motor, unless you're using it in the economy setting for daily driving and the stock setting for towing. But even then I believe economy is giving you more power than stock. No chip for me, at least until the truck is out of warranty.
