    i want to get either a br600 or echo 770 and want to sell my br340 which is about 4yrs old and tube is a little beat up and my br380 which is 2yrs old and still in good condition. a new trimmer to and want to sell my fs45 trimmer, 6yrs old. and possibly my 21"honda hrx217 which is 4yrs old. if you guys have any ideas of what these would be worth and if craigslist would be a good place to sell them or if there is another place i can look to see what they are worth

    Pennies on the dollar, I had some guy "offer" me $100 for an older br420 some
    years ago, and granted my asking price was too high but I just couldn't do it,
    they sell new for $400+ and they run forever.

    I still have it :p

    Just for example last year my br600 gave me some trouble, it had to go in the shop
    and I am telling you was I glad I still had my 420!

    So you want to keep at least ONE as a back up!
    Maybe 150, 200...
    Depends, that's what I was asking, $200...

    you wont get by with a fs45 trimmer. the br 340 and 380 are perfectly fine. In my opinion, i would focus on getting a new trimmer before i worried about a new blower since both blowers you have now are commercial grade whereas your trimmer isnt...just my .02

    get a trimmer now, fs 90, save the blowers for mowing and buy a br 600 this winter for leaves and when mowing starts again pull the lil stihls out and pack that 600 away.

    thats a good idea to use the big blower for only leaves...you think i should get the br600 instead of the echo 770? and for the trimmer is the fs90 good or should i get a bigger one with the attachment accessories?

    That 770 moves more air than a politician. Try one, it's a monster.
