Recently purchased an Echo HC1500 20" hedge trimmer on E-Bay for $185 + $15 S&H. Brand new! Best price I found elsewhere was $250 to $260. I'm happy. Every so often there's a pretty good deal on there. Lotsa Echo stuff. Have seen Stihl, Redmax, Shindaiwa, and several others. The hard part is sifting through the junk. Like type "blower" into the search and you'll get stuff relating to glass blowing. Have any of you guys got any great deals on there worth mentioning? I'm keeping my eye on it for some back up equipment.
