I have been getting the little cards that Shindaiwa mails out to all there customers that mail in there warrenty cards, they have been doing the free sprayer, a big spool of string, or free oil for quite sometime now.
I just bought a 230 also, $299.00 and NO sprayer. :angry:
P.S. I'll never buy another one, not enough power. I like that it's lighter than my 270, but I think the 260 is what I should have gotten. Maybe my 270 has just spoiled me, but you just get used to the power I guess. And it's an inch or so shorter, makes me do more bending over. Grrrr, great back-up trimmer though, and I just bought a 270 on Ebay and a 260 Stick edger also. WOOOT!
Elephant, I bought one of those edgers of of ebay too...i got mine for 150 something. I hope it is a good one. Yeah I dont know what the deal is about the sprayer..all i know is that he offered me the 2 gallon one and then the 4 gallon one and I had to be stupid not to take the 4 gal.
