    While blowing out leaves at my home the yesterday, I had my hand on the backpack straps, while I had a long stick picking twiggs out of my gutters, well I lost my balance and the backpack went for a dive. it broke the handle, and several other items on the backpack, and it was old, so its time to get a new one, the old one was a Lesco, well I am looking at a kaw or a Sthl, both are good, need a survey of you folks on which one to buy, the lesco, the dealer says hey no parts availible, so does the Kaw or the Stihl have a spare parts list if I happened to drop it off the roof? or maybe something worse.
    Please let me know.

    The Deere BP 50 is a 48 cc Kaw. The currently have a coupon in their magazine for $75 off. Making the price only 325. I have one and I like it, I'm sure its the same as other makes just yellow.

    Deere sends a quarterly magazine out called Yards Ahead. The coupon is in there. My dealer normally has a few copies laying around.

    I bought a stihl br400 when i first started, stihl going strong.Pun intended.

    No complaints, just not the power of the redmax.

    Good pun, except that it's pronounced "Steel."

    English is a weird language, man. I thought it was "Still" too until I watched some videos on their website and heard their own people pronounce it.

    Hell, even 'Steel going strong' sounds good though.
