    Any issues with the metal showing any signs of Rust? Other than the normal wear and tear scratches turning a little.

    NO problems at all. Works great and looks like new. I don't like the looks of the force for some reason.

    Thank you. The QB looks more compact to me. My salesman says he can get me the QB for 875 9hp w/subaru engine. Good price? I was looking at the force at another dealer which I pass by on one of my routes and he say he can get the force for for 1075 w/ a 75 mail in rebate. So the net would be 999 plus tax.

    I think you will be much more happy with the QB. Thats a very good price because they are over $1000 here.

    Yes I really like that hand control for the shoot......could be big mistake taking that off. Does any of the other brands have this hand control?

    Well, I went with the Force. Although I like the lever for the chute deflection on the QB. The bigger tires are a big selling point. East to manuver. I was able to use it on a couple of yards only because I have been sick. So Monday is the day I will really put it to the test. I just hope I can work all day. The weather here stinks and the forecast is no better for the end of the week.
