    I just got a good deal (Ihope) on a barely used saw with the 5.5hp engine.

    It is less than a year old and looks great.
    I washed the dust off and she looks new.
    The engine also has the cyclonic filter on it.

    Paid 950 for it with the folding stand and the legs that insert into the bottom.

    What do you think?

    This guy who has been in the paver buisness for a long time had a big company that done all of Home Depots work in the area .
    He got in a messy divorce.
    He closed his company during it and got a job with another company .
    He liquidated everything once the divorce was final for cash too start over .

    I was riding down the road looked over and seen all this stuff in a front yard for sale.
    Ended up with it ,a gill pulverizer and a gill 3 way box blade.

    Thanks for the reassurance.

    Every time I seem too find what I think is a killer deal I always seem too get bitten in the end lol.

    I used it some and it is the cats meow.
    It makes cutting paver's effortless.
    It is rather heavy though.

    I have dabbled in paver's and walls and I have had too rent a big saw too do the cap blocks and paver's with alot of cuts.On small jobs it gets into the profit.



    The good thing buy meeting this guy is he wants too discuss me subbing the companies jobs on this side of town.
    He is the operations manager for them.
    They only pay around 10 a sq/ft for the paver's but they buy direct from the block manufacturer so I would be getting them a lower price than I pay now so it may not be so bad.They do adjust cost for the size of the job.

    Most guys here who do paver's are from south of the border LOL so having an American contractor doing the jobs for them helps with residential work.
