    My word! They go new here for $379.00, and I have a few for sale for $250.00. You will LOVE it though, just wish you didn't have to pay so much.

    Good machine. We have 6 crews lawn maint crews where I work and they have 2 T270s per crew, plus we have 2 large landscaping crews and they also run 1 each 270. They have been real good as far as durability. I have made up several spares from siezed powerheads by buying new jugs and pistons. They run as good as new. The gear boxes and shafts are bullet proof. Ocassionaly I replace a clutch or clutch drum, maybe a carb, if the crew doesnt keep the gas and filters clean. Oh,, keep the all the cap screws tight. They shoul dhave given you the allen wrenches when ya bought it. use em..
