Was on my way home from just gettin off from police dept, i saw a guy setting stuff out for a yard sale for tommorrow. saw this vacum/blower he wanted $125 i offered him $75 cash(all i had in my wallet) and he said deal. starts on the first pull. i actually used it to pick up some grass clippings off my driveway this evening. cant wait to try it out with some fall cleanups!
