    I've got a month old Stihl FS 80R Trimmer and BG 85 Blower for sale in the Metro New Orleans area. I just haven't been too impressed and am deciding to stay with Echo because of local dealer support. Both units have not been used much at all. The trimmer is for sale for $250 and the blower for $170. PM me if you're interested.

    Where did you find a new FS80, I though they stop making those.

    My dealer has stocked up on FS 80R's. He doesn't care for the 4-mix.

    Can I see picks of the blower?
    I may pick it up from you on Friday.

    Hey guys, sorry I haven't responded earlier than now. I don't have pics right now and wouldn't be able to have any until maybe Friday at the latest. The trimmer and blower are basically brand new. I used them on half of my yards (12) and decided that I didn't like them that much and decided to stick with Echo (waste of money on my part).

    As for shipping, I don't know if it would be feasible, because after the cost of shipping, you might as well buy from a nearby dealer. I'll try to check some prices for shipping to Mississippi and let you know if it's worth it or not.

    Thanks, Todd

    How far is Silver Creek from Canton? I'll be in Canton for the weekend at my hunting camp and would be willing to bring the equipment with me if you're not too far away.

    Sorry for so many replies....I just looked up Silver Creek on Mapquest, and it looks like you're only about 20 miles away from I-55 in Brookhaven. I'll be passing through there on my way to Canton late Friday afternoon if you're interested.

    Josh, here's the pics of the Echo backpack. I'd be willing to part with it for $175.
