    Grass gobbler - use the SEARCH feature to do a search for threads on the subject. I know there's been quite a few related threads. Good luck.

    I've received their catalogs, and the prices are eye catching but if you start looking for a new mower ,going to your local dealer is just as cheap.Also my question is what happens when they need repairs done?Good Luck and welcomt to LAWNSITE!:D

    I've bought lots of stuff from them- blades, filters, ect... I've never had any problems with them. As a matter of fact, sometimes they call me up, to see if I was satisfied with their services. I would never purchase a piece of gas powered equipment from them. What do you do when theres a problem?

    ive had some problems with them. i havent bought any gas powered equipment, but ive needed tools like mattuxes etc. each time i went in for a tool, they wouldnt have it. so, hed order it from me. i mean you can get most hand tools anywhere. it took over two weeks each time for him to get the tools in. if you are a supply place, you should be able to do better than that. i just go to a local hardware store now, cause they always have the tools i need.

    I think it would be better to build a relationship with a dealer, especially if you are just starting out and don't have much equipment. If you purchase from a local dealer and the product goes down, they will usually loan you a replacement until your product is repaired.

    Bob doesnt carry that stuff because the True Value across the street carries it cheaper than he can. FYI.
  9. We have bought blades and parts but never a machine
    I agree with walker -talker buy from a dealer they will if they are a good one take care of you.

    I bought a backpack blower from them 2 years ago. Still runs good, & most importantly, it has paid for itself many times.
