    picked up a shindawia 272x for 75$ and it works perfect! this sucker is a powerhouse! a little heavy and has a manual feed head but i will load it with square .105 line and look out!:weightlifter: i really like the extra long shaft as you dont have to bend over to reach some stuff to trim. i almost didnt buy it cause of the weight but then i thought of what this thing cost new and couldnt pass it up

    I highly doubt that wasn't stolen.

    Lawnboy Dan didn't steal it. He bought it fair and square, right Dan?:drinkup:
    Good Score, man!

    If it was stolen by someone else, he is still in posesion of stolen property, which is illegal

    Attitudes like this are why theft is so high. People think that just because the didn't steal the equipment its okay. He might have bought it fair and square but 9 times out of 10 it was stolen property sold to the pawn shop and buyers like him keep the thieves in "business"
