    here I have my new toro commercial 21" that I paid cash out the door on. Also are my snapper and honda mowers and redmax trimmer and echo bp blower. More equipement on the way. What's a good stick edger and hand blower to get?

    Your equipment is just fine. I have never owned a Toro 21", I hear they are expert mulchers. Your on your way!

    Thanks. mcw, the echo is good but my dealer told me to go only with redmax for handheld blowers. The honda's rear axle is not working right though. It can't turn left and gets jammed. I'm really confused on this?????? Yes the Toro is a great mulcher and is built just like it's bigger brothers with the kawasaki engine and a two year commercial warranty. The thing that's bothering me is that is has a engine guard bar that is black and is slanted compared to the gold one that is sqaured on most of them. Is it just a change that is not important? The new hi vac toro has this bar on it.

    On your honda, do the wheels sometimes jam up when you are trying to pull the unit backwards as well? As for the redmax handhelds, i would'nt know as ive never used them, my redmax eb7001 is a beast though so i wouldn't at all hesitate to try the redmax handhelds as well

    I like the stihl fc110 edger which I have had for 2 years. Blower go with a Husqvarna the new one is super quite and blows the exhaust out the tube which is pretty neat!
    Good luck and have a great year!

    ive been waiting so long for a company to do that! it just makes sense to have the exhaust blown out the tube!

    I'd go with the shindaiwa le261, I have the le 231 which works great unless you get a sidewalk that hasn't been edged in a year. The toro is a real nice mower I have used them before, they last a real long time. Keep an eye on the mounting bolts for the wheels and wheel arms, I had them come lose and fall of once and a while.

    Them Toro mowers are great machines! I would look into redmax or shindaiwa for a edger and blower! The redmax hand blowers are light and put out a ton of air!!!
