    You get what you pay for, buy cheap and you will get cheap IMHO. I also agree with Marc, I buy from my dealer because when in a bind he will bend over backwards and do somersaults to get me going again.

    Question: What is this kind of service worth to you? To me its priceless. Final thought; I want to have equipment that I'm certain will perform the job I ask of it, don't really care if it sits idle 80% of the time as far as handhelds go.

    I've got to agree with Green-Pro..I've never regretted buying quality. I tried running with old/used/cheap equipment in the past and really screwed myself at times. Especially because I have a crew using my equipment, tools get used hard, and the downtime gets expensive when they don't have equipment that works.
    I buy all my equipment from one dealer, no ebay, etc. He fixes my machines usually while I wait. Like Green-Pro said, that is priceless. Actually, that quickly becomes cheaper than buying from Depot or online.
