    One of the local landscape supply places started dealing Husquvarna equipment about a year ago. In order to meet the manufactures criteria for being a retailer, they had to offer some services, blade sharpening being one of them.

    In June of 2006, they spent over $450 on a new RBG grinder with stand and grit collector. They decided in Janurary of this year to can the Husq line and sell off the rest of the inventory.

    Through some wheelin' and dealin', I picked up that grinder for $150 cash!!!! It's like new and works AWESOME!!!!!

    Lucky find there! What hp is it? I'd love to try one out and see if I like it sometime. I tried an older Lesco model out a few years back and didn't like it at all, but maybe it was just how it was set up...

    I believe it's the 2181 model. The grinder alone is listed at over $400 and the stand with grit collector is another $250

    Not sure of the HP. but it really does a nice job on the blades. No more angle and bench grinder for this guy!!
