    Today I was out mowing one of usual clients and a guy drove up and asked me if I wanted to buy a backpack blower. He said that it was just like the one I had, which is a Stihl 550. He really didn't know much at all about the blower so I thought it was going to be some BS homeowner crap. He said just wait right here and I'll bring it by. When he returned it was what he said and I was shocked.

    You wont believe what this guy sold me this blower for.......$60. I almost broke my hand reaching in my pocket to get the money out.

    He said that it was his but he didn't need it because he had a homeowner blower that was already to much for his yard. I dont know if he stole it but I asked and he said no, so I felt thats all I could do.

    Was this great or what!!!!!! What do you'll think?

    Clearly it was stolen. Lots of back pack back blowers have been dissapearing, look in the Michigna LCOs thread.

    How could you possibly think that it wasn't stolen? Poor decision making skills on your part, but thats just one mans opinion.
