THe machine is a little wonder 9hp honda walkbehind blower... Its about 2 years old. The place to be bought from is Home depot.. I work at this one and the dh in the tool rental center said he'll hook me up with a price of 325. It runs great i use it everynow and then to clean up the parking lot. I belive this model goes for about 850 new around here. Most of my properties do not justify haveing one of these... I have a few big ones that I feel i could swing a $300 for a machine to make it easier on my back!
