    I am looking to buy used handhelds or anything you think may help me out this spring.
    Interested in:
    Pole pruner (attachment or whole stetup)
    Hedge Trimmer (attachment or whole setup
    Weed eater (to put my attachments on so I have permanent hedge trimmer/ etc)
    Chain Saw (my poulan is pretty unreliable)
    Any other equipment that may be helpful.
    -Preferably Stihl because the shop in my area specializes in Stihl, so it would be good for replacement parts
    - Links to threads of people wanting to get rid of their equipment would be good.
    -I am located in Augusta, Ga
    I have:
    Stihl Fs90r Weed eater
    Stihl Edger Gearbox attachment (for my fs90r)
    Husqvarna hl700 push mower (21")
    Cub Cadet 42" riding mower w/ bagger (Only really use it on larger lots)
    Pressure washer,Tiller, Seed spreaders, ladders, etc

    I'd recommend buying new. Our junk is wore out!

    Well I'd love to buy new but right now I don't do enough hedge trimming or edging to spend 350-600 on new. So I would like used to use for a season or two! And if I could get a used one for $100 and it messes up I could take the gearbox attachment off of it and use it on my FS90r (wich is new) because attachments are 175-300 and new handhelds are 350-600, ya know?

    Thats what Ive been doing for about a month now.
    I would buy new equipment but I have very minimal cashflow since I cant work construction anymore due to college and track.
    I figured id post a thread for anyone looking to sell their equipment to make room for new stuff
