    Whats up! I thought id show yall my new mower and trimmer I got. I got the mower today and the the trimmer a few weeks ago. The mower was advertised at 399.00, but rang up for 300! Its really nice, I dont personally like bad boy mowers but this mower is great. The trimmer is in stihls' "homeowner" line but is very nice and has plenty of power for my currently small business. Got a new name and logo for next season so ill have that to share in a few days.
    Thanks for looking

    I'd like to hear a review of that mower after you use it for a little while!

    I'd be careful with the FS-55, because after 2 weeks, my carb was shot and I know several others who have had that problem as well.

    Are the wheels on that Bad Boy metal or plastic?

    I've had a Stihl 55 edger for years now and the engine is no trouble. I have had problems with the power switch and triggers.

    Dang you mowed an acre with a 21in cut. How long did that take you?
