I know most of us use our equipment alot and eventually have to take it in ( assuming you don't have the time to work on yourselves) to get repaired. When you take them in, how often and how much $'s in repairs. I'm solo and have just recently had my Exmark in to have spindles replaced and blade belt, ( unit is almost 2 years old). Have also taken my Stihl trimmer in for odds and in's ( about a year and 1/2 old ). My Echo backpack is almost 3 years and seems not to run as well as it used to either. Is it just me or is this normal?
