    I've only used our force a couple times, but so far, other than not having a chute deflection lever, really like it. I would hope that the lever is something that could be retrofitted eventually, I would surely buy one.

    Believe it or not, most of them are. However, if they do not come up with a chute adjustment linkage, I may come up with something myself. I really like the robin/ subaru engine so far. Quiet like a honda.

    Thanks. But right now I am about whoop little puppy. It feels like I got kicked right in the back of my carharts.:waving: This bug should did take all my strength that is for sure. I took some more advil and now it will be off to sleep after I check other posts. :waving: It was a nasty day and I should not have gone out. Cold, windy 20-30 mph winds. snow flurries pretty much all day.

    Now the force was great to use. Had no problems moved the leaves so fast I was totally amazed. These were dry leaves too. The other day we had wet ones and it did a good job on those too. So far no complaints and all of my yards except 1 are flat. I did the hill today and just had to be careful with it. I dropped it at the top and worked my way to the bottom. Sure did save time on that job.

    I just finished a field test for Turf Mag. i demoed both the 13 hp Honda and 9 hp Robin. Drue from Billygoat was with me most of the day. we had a prototype shoot control that was on the 13 hp it made all the difference in the world. i too would'nt buy one without the remote. it should be available in the spring it will fit all force machines. they also have a prolocker type thing to secure it to your trailer that was kind of neat.
