    You're welcome and you don't really need to break it in before using it. Also keep an eye out for hardware loosening up, as with any new equipment. That's my biggest problem with all of my equipment. The only real problem I have with my 580, and I guess it's really operator error, is turning it off when I don't mean to. I prefer a push-button kill switch that you have to deliberately push and hold to turn off.

    I know that you talking about the blower I have now if the switch is touch at all it kills without holding it.

    ......or wait until mid summer when the new 600 BTS comes out. It will actuallly blow the debris into a pile, then bag it for you, and they're actually paying you to take them off your dealers hands.

    Yeah but with the dual blower tubes and supercharged engine the problem they're having with them is operators becoming airborne. :laugh:
