    I run them until they have too many problems. I'm not a very good mechanic.

    Even if the cost of the parts was cheap my labor charge for fixing equipment is off the wall. 300 for a new trimmer 500 for a new blower i dont see the problem. If your not making enough to replace your equipment along the way ur doing something worng.
