    Do a search on capt devo. Vaguely remember another thread concerning him. Dont think it was too flattering.

    I live about 32 miles north of Captdevo - He is the Capt. of a riverboat gambling casino and sells mower stuff on the side, and I have heard a rumor that he is moving to another state. REMEMBER that it is only a RUMOR.

    I have dealt with him on several purchases and I found him to be very helpful and easy to work with. The one item that I purchased from him and he was temperarily out of stock he made up for by including some extra items in my order.:D

    I wanted to give him some business too. I called him twice and never got any reply. I guess he must not need the business???? I ended up buying locally at a slightly higher price.

    Bought my back pack blower and magna matic through him. However a few weeks ago I too called him and wanted to purchase an aerator from him, I didn't get a call back either.

    Shame, seemed like a very knowledgeable person.

    you would think he would hire someone to help him out. working 2 jobs is tuff and for sure one is going to suffer for that reason. I know he loves his job cruzing the river in his big boat

    I have emailed him twice about 3 pt aerators he advertised. No response at all. I'm not going to keep knocking.
