ok, after careful consideration and limited funds, i'm gonna sell my metro 36" and all my stihl stuff. i looked in the sunday paper and found a few years old 42" murray lawn tractor. i still have a weedeater brand trimmer that i used to use around the house so it should work till i buy a new one. also saw a mccollough backpack blower at an outlet store for $100, may pick that up too. i figure if the other guys can make money doing it why can't i. i'll still be around on here to gain some good info though. thanks. APRIL FOOLS!!!!!! now maybe the grass will turn green here since it's april.
