    I had been planning on buying a cheap ($300 or $400) motor scooter to help speed up the pain of delivering flyers/doorhangers. I recently purchased the Lesco HPS unit and thought I could save some money using this instead. I could put a gas can and some flyers/doorhangers in the hopper. It would give me a chance to break the machine in good while it's still under warranty.

    BTW, today was the first day I used it and I give it thumbs up!

    Good idea or bad? Would it look any more sillier riding this around vs. a little scooter?

    Thanks

    I understand that, but it's on the side streets and where I come from I don't think I would have any trouble.

    I actually thought about doing that with my PG last week, but figured I needed the exercise after sitting around all winter!

    God only knows I need the excercise also, but if I actually wanted the excercise, I wouldn't bought the unit in the first place. I just thinking of productivity here. It would speed up things tremendously. I am going to give it a shot.

    If you do this, you should fill the hopper with cold beer & ice! :drinkup:
