    Lesco is coming the the Pacific Northwest this winter, specifically Seattle and Portland. This will mark the first time they have had a presence in our area.

    Are their products really any different than anybody else's? Will this be an advantage to us greenies up here in our little corner of the country?

    You will love Lesco....cheaper than Home Depot and many more good products and great advise from experienced people.

    I dont think you have anything to loose by at least going to the store and checking it out, I use lesco mowers, and couldnt be happier. Then again, I havent really used a whole lot else. But I think its worth the trip, so what the heck?

    I have used lesco firt products they are high quality. Low dust low clumping firt materials.
    I have a lesco 48 belt drive finishing its second season. I just replaced wheel bearing on the grass catcher rear side. That is the only problem I have had with the mower. This year I had about 37 lawns last year about10.
    Thier mowers have high horsepower kawasiki motors and stripe verry good. I will get a hydro 48 next year new they are a steel at about 3400.
    Do yourself a favor and look at what they have to offer. The mechanical service in my area stinks but parts are easy. If you can fix stuf yourself it should be ok.

    I think Lesco products are great. Our local store(Bethlehem) has two knowledgeable guys. Very helpful. I have a WB spreader and a leaf loader from them. We just bought a kawasaki back pack blower. It is kind of odd they didn't have a store there yet. I believe they process all their seed in your area. Good luck. Matt
