    If not available at your local supplier,
    You may need to order online.
    Check Landscape Supply advertisement
    It's one of the sponsors listed above

    I just bought one and am very pleased with it. I had been using a Beckson Utlity Pump and the Suck Tube is far better. It will deal with mud and debris a heck of a lot better than the Beckson. I was surprised at how large the Suck Tube is. I was expecting something much smaller.

    Yes, after trading a few e-mails, Bill does sound like a nice guy.

    BTW, a few regulars here say they carry Leatherman Waves and Amazon.com has a good deal on it right now.

    Leatherman New Wave with Leather Sheath + Leatherman Micra for $50 w/ free shipping. (click the "Buy Both and Save" to get the combo deal).

    My problem is that I've broken a blade and snapped the plier tip on my wave. Leatherman has a lifetime warantee, but I actually have to mail the damn thing back to them for repair.

    Then I wouldn't have one for a while.

    I might just buy one as a backup.

    Actually theirs is not a lifetime warranty http://www.leatherman.com/customer-service/warranty-info/default.asp

    I think Gerber is though.
