    Slightly used? $105? Equipment doesn't just go for random, low prices - especially out of the blue from people who aren't even involved the lawn business. Use your instincts. Common sense tells you what the real deal is....

    he does have a lawn business small and he has or had 3 blowers and this was the smallest one he said he didnt need that many so i asked him how much? he said 105 and i said sold but he bought it from a guy he said was going out of business and i just want to double check his story

    Ive got an echo pb403...basically the same blower,

    Worthless, your friend got the deal, he just wanted to get rid of it, doesnt do to well in leaf cleanups or blowing out edges.

    105 is not that bad though, I paid some $340 for my last ever echo.

    As long as you didn't steal it, it doesn't really matter. i cant say i have seen many police officers scoping out landscaping rigs for a stolen blower.

    Sorry to disagree but if that was your blower he was buying wouldn't you feel different?
