You ever have one of those days?

Well this was a good one. Got 4 out of 5 customers tractors out the door. 1 needed tranny replacment the other needed engine reringed. The other 2 needed regular service. Got my hb-112 up and running and also got the hydro lift mounted and working. On the way home I stopped at a friends house to pick up some A-C parts,which he had and free.(I'm sure he will need something down the road). He also had seen a A-C for sale,so we went out to look at it.A very clean B-110,42" deck,extra set of rear tires, wheel weights,A-C turning plow and hitch to go with it. $200 for the works,what a day.:D:D:D

Hey, it all comes and goes.... I got that 3210 with deck, snow plow, and moldboard plow for $20 the other day, then yesterday I had been doing yard work and forgot the weed wacker was in front of the car. Neighbor came over needing a jump start so I got into the car and promptly ran over my weed wacker. Not a huge loss in that it was given to me for free, but in a way it is because the replacement one will be about $400(I'm upgrading a LOT) for a split shaft Stihl that will take attachments..... BTW, the mower deck is all that I have left from the 3210. Both plows went on eBay and another club member has the 3210 V now. Guess that takes the bite out of paying for a new trimmer......

I wish I could get that much done in a year. I got a simmilar deal on my B110 only I got a blade, deck, chains, a tiller,for $200, but no weights, I sure need some weights. Daddycat, $400 for a trimmer, Wow! I get lots of use out of ryobi's I get from the trash and yard sales, I cant seem to kill them. For $400 I'd buy another tractor or some more attachments, but hey Sthil is the best trimmer from what I've been told. -Chris

Wound up with the Echo trimmer instead. It was "only" $360 but is the one prefered by landscapers. It's a split shaft, which means it can take attachments other than the string trimmer or brush blade. They make a pole saw, sweeper, cultivator, hedge trimmer, edger, etc... for it that all fit the same power head. Since I'm trying to start a landscaping business I figured I'd better get something that will stand up to the heavy use....

An echo will stand up. I used one years ago 50 lawns a week for 3 years. Just changed the plug every spring.
