    A friend of mine that owns a tool rental store is selling his Bluebird aerator for $800. It is in great condition. Just wanted to tell somebody!

    I know nobody really cares. Yeah, I'll post some pics when I get it.
    I never get deals like that either. I happen to be at his store today just hanging out and avoiding work, and he mentioned he was about to list it on Ebay. I asked him how much he wanted for it and he finally came up with $800. So I jumped on it. I have used this particular aerator before and like it just fine. And for $800, couldn't pass on it. I'll be picking it up sometime next week. I'll get some pics then.

    That is an excellent price - and since it runs such low rpm the Honda engine should last forever and the biggest maintenance item is the drive chain . Which model is it?

    Not sure exact model, but it has controls like the 4-BLU-H742. That one lists for around $2500 according to a site that I looked at....and that is what my friend said that it lists for. So it must be that one or one almost identical to it.
    I'm fairly stoked about the deal.
