I've been a one man business now for 7 years and it never seems to fail that something has to break right at the end of the season. Last year on the last week of cutting my trimmer crapped out. Today when I was doing leaves my blower crank bearing crapped out I won't get the parts until Thursday and I have this week booked with jobs. It's tough to justify spending $700 canadian for a new one when I can rebuild this one for $45. How many of you run into this problem?
