    thanks for the info tom. the 85 looks and sounds like a nice blower so ill have to make my mind up between that and the br 380. the back pack is deffinitly more comfortable so if the money is there i will look towards that.

    i have thought about re sending flyers and stuff for some more lawn acounts and for some leaf cleanups this year to pay for all this stuff.lol

    If there is only a few dollar cost difference between the 380 and the 85, get the backpack and be much happier. Dont forget, since you are buying new, buy stuff you can grow into over the next few years rather than buy crap that will become useless to you in a year or two. Save up and spend the extra $$$. You will be happier and more profitable in the long run

    The 90 will suit you fine. I havn't had a problem yet with mine, had to slow down a few times but nothing major.

    Do you have any sign shops in your town? If so go have them make up a yard sign or two. I am having 5 made up, 3 color on white back for 25 bucks each. Just an idea that might work for you since you don't have a truck to letter up.

    The weather reports lately have been making me think that it is winter again. Called for a slight chance of a shower last night- got 7 tenths. Called for rain all day and only rained for say a half hour. Were calling for 1-2 of rain tonight- now only a quater to a half.:dizzy:

    thanks for all the help guys. by cutting back to a 90 and upgrading to a back pack it costs me about 40 dollars more.

    My house and one of my grandma's for sure for right now. Both are corner lots to 2 main ways into town. So i could use 4 signs for the two houses if i wanted to but i think my grandma will get tired of the sign real quick. I will also use them when mulching and such. Maybe switch some signs with other guys too:nono:
