    I just bought a 230 also, $299.00 and NO sprayer. :angry:

    P.S. I'll never buy another one, not enough power. I like that it's lighter than my 270, but I think the 260 is what I should have gotten. Maybe my 270 has just spoiled me, but you just get used to the power I guess. And it's an inch or so shorter, makes me do more bending over. Grrrr, great back-up trimmer though, and I just bought a 270 on Ebay and a 260 Stick edger also. WOOOT!

    i paid $240 for my T230, didn't see any freebies though. oh well, i'm not licensed for any spraying, so i guess i'll take the discounted price. :)
