    The hurricane and the brown are basically the same exact machine, Brown ripped off hurricanes design.

    They are virtually identical. Also If i remember correctly Hurricane is currently going after Brown legally for patent infringement.

    Not sure how they can do that when one has red paint and the other is more of a maroon

    Also it looks to me like there's more then 25% difference in design. Good luck trying to win that. They are different. Once a product is made, others will try their best to make one better.

    Is it me or does the Brown blower have torsion springs on the front forks? If that's the case, big thumbs up for Mr. Brown for considering them.

    If you could make it a year round machine they would sell alot more of them. What other options is Hurricane going to offer ? Its not that much different than the Toro aerator

    I have told Wright Stander company about making a year round use machine several times before but they never thought it would be a big seller. Mower in the summer , blower in the fall , plow in the winter and even an areator for spring and fall.
