I picked up a Poulan with the attachment-changing capacity. Need to get the 2nd gas can for mixed. Haven't picked up any attachments yet, but good thing is that it's compatible with multiple brands apparently. I'm digging the blower one seriously...not doing the edger one, tilt the dang trimmer up and run it that way instead.

I had an Echo trimmer and blower for years, but finally went to Stihl when I couldn't find a local Echo shop. I'd like an gas edger, but I won't buy one until my corded electric one dies. I don't use my Husqvarna much today, but I ran it a lot cutting off stumps. Great saw.

The push mower I picked up recently is a Husq...brand new, clearance because it was last year's model. Easiest mower I've ever started with a pull cord. The self-propel option on it makes it fly....I had to get used to letting go of the propel lever when I got close to the fence because it wanted to climb the chicken wire. haha

I'd like a stihl but the dealer is also a tractor shop. Home depot is open 7 days a week.
I have a poulan chainsaw. One of these days I should get all the same brand.

My Husky (Husqi? - Rich, what do you two wheeled guys call them?) has a manually actuated decompression valve for much easier starts. They may have automated that feature in later years. It's a great idea.

I ran first tank last night in trimmer. It's slowly breaking in. The old pos holdouts I'd always bump the choke with my elbow,and it was a shorter shaft.
The new echo choke is out of way,and longer straight shaft.

I would imagine the Husky is automatic by now.
My '05 Yamaha is automatic.
Small weight on the sprocket, weight swings out and retracts a pin that is 180 opposite the exhaust lobe.
I think Yamaha started using that with the 2003 redesign.

Welp guys (and gal), this just goes to show that if you live long enough, you will see everything.
We're not doing politics in here (of course), I just wanted to point out today in case y'all missed it

Lois Lerner,of the IRS, a fucking bureaucrat, in being grilled about the normal discourse of her duties, pleaded the Fifth, I am racking my brain trying to come up with anyone else doing this being questioned about the normal discourse of their government job. I am pretty sure this is a first.

http://search.yahoo.com/r/_ylt=A0oGd...ing/index.html

From somewhere under a concrete slab, Jimmy Hoffa just yelled "You go girl!"
Senator Kaufman just spun in his grave, somewhere in Hell, a bunch of gangsters are rolling on the floor laughing. Senators everywhere are kicking their cats.



Can you guys think of anyone else that has done this? Regarding just their normal government job???

Seriously, government hacks are pleading the Fifth!?!?!? Ollie danced and sang, Clinton was, well Slick Willie, Reagan said "I don't remember" 110 times, but the Fifth?
The best part was the disclaimer she read before she took the Fifth, if that doesn't sound like someone thinking they could go to jail then I don't know what is.


Hey Pete, do your gub'ment hacks do that in Canadaland?

So today I finally got hoist in work truck finished. I used two old extension cords,different colors. And ran them in pex under truck to superwinch on hoist.
Cleaned up the truck,and dressed dash,tires,cleaned windows,cleaned floor of about a 1-1/2 year's of daily driving munchie spills.
