    Won my bidding auction earlier today. Homelite 25cc backpack blower for $67.00. It was used, turned into a salvage company in Cincinnati. Shipping was $16.00 for a total of $83.00. Bidding on another one, same model, winning that one right now too. Also a Homelite trimmer as well and I am searching for a new edger, mine took a dump last week. This is my first time using eBay, its an addicting site to say the least. I am also in the market for a trimmer rack and found a few 3 line racks with locks, minus bolts, for $65-$85 on there. Does that sound like a fair price? They are brand new according to the listings and I figured what the hell, might as well go nuts and get some more stuff. If I win the other backpack auction, taking that puppy up north to my folks cottage and leaving it up there. Gobs of trees on the property and tons of leaves to be disposed of in the woods behind the property. I think it will come in handy.

    yeah dude, one thing i've learned in this business, don't use cheap equiptment. That is blower is nothing more then an $85 waiste of space on your trailer.

    Sorry to burst your bubble but Oddlots or Biglots in Ohio are selling them refurbished for like 90 bucks. I agree they dont have enough power.

    But if he gets the other one, he can put one on each shoulder, and have double the blowing power and air volume... :cool2:
