    Grass gobbler - use the SEARCH feature to do a search for threads on the subject. I know there's been quite a few related threads. Good luck.

    I've received their catalogs, and the prices are eye catching but if you start looking for a new mower ,going to your local dealer is just as cheap.Also my question is what happens when they need repairs done?Good Luck and welcomt to LAWNSITE!:D

    I've bought lots of stuff from them- blades, filters, ect... I've never had any problems with them. As a matter of fact, sometimes they call me up, to see if I was satisfied with their services. I would never purchase a piece of gas powered equipment from them. What do you do when theres a problem?

    ive had some problems with them. i havent bought any gas powered equipment, but ive needed tools like mattuxes etc. each time i went in for a tool, they wouldnt have it. so, hed order it from me. i mean you can get most hand tools anywhere. it took over two weeks each time for him to get the tools in. if you are a supply place, you should be able to do better than that. i just go to a local hardware store now, cause they always have the tools i need.

    I think it would be better to build a relationship with a dealer, especially if you are just starting out and don't have much equipment. If you purchase from a local dealer and the product goes down, they will usually loan you a replacement until your product is repaired.

    Bob doesnt carry that stuff because the True Value across the street carries it cheaper than he can. FYI.

    I agree with walker -talker buy from a dealer they will if they are a good one take care of you.

    I bought a backpack blower from them 2 years ago. Still runs good, & most importantly, it has paid for itself many times.
