    Doing some spring cleaning and I have accumulated countless wips, edgers and blowers that don't work anymore over the last 9 years. I have parted everything out that I could. Thought I'd throw in a picture of a dixie chopper since it is pretty much junk too.

    I heard that every 3 or so years the brickmen rents a dumpster and pitches out all of there hand helds.

    Thats a lot of stuff to be pitching, i would put like $10 each on craigslist or just $200 for all the HH's.

    Every engine is completely shot. The only things really worth saving are the shafts and the rods inside, which I still may keep. This stuff has been sit'n around for so long that I just want to get rid of it. Alot of this stuff is broke because of past employees that just don't give a crap. Sucks.

    I'm constantly having hydrolic problems with it. The pumps and hoses are always leaking. Same goes for my other two dixies. Its seems like the pumps start going bad after 1 season.
