So why not buy from this ebay guy? my only question is if i buy the blower from this guy and if something goes wrong w/ it, will my local Redmax dealer fix it for me (still being under warranty) even though he didn't sell it to me? is there any disadvantage or potential risk giving me reason to shell out the extra $50 to my local dealer for the same exact product? oh yea, and this particular auction is for the left handed throttle, but the same ebay seller has right handed throttle model's for the same price on a different auction. My dealer said buy a left handed throttle one because it has less problems than the right handed one-which apparently breaks or comes loose... then the other day some one on this sight says "only buy the right-handed model".... so what's a guy like me to do? the only blower i own has the throttle mounted on the left side, and i don't mind it there at all... some one please expand on this topic w/ the pro's and con's of each... Thanks once again in advance!!!!!
