    The local dealer is asking $25,000 for the BB200, could that be correct? I have no experience with bark blowers, are they really that expensive?

    We checked them out at the Ohio turf grass show in December. They are really nice. Quality all the way, looks like it would last forever. The salesman showed us how the thing works and even offered for us to come to there shop to demo it. We have not used one ,but I want one. They say it will do 8 yds an hour. They only drawback that I can see to it is loading it. It can be loaded straight from the back of a truck which is great but ,unless you have a large truck you will go through the pile in 15 minutes. The other option is to get it mounted to a flatbed trailer, then you could carry the blower and mulch in one unit ,but again the thing blows so fast that you would go through you pile of mulch really quick. As for the price we were told $28,000. I would also like to here some feedback from someone who has used one of these.
