isnt that the truth. i dont need the $500 but i need the room that it occupies. maybe i can find a family member willing to give it a home. Nothing today sold at box stores will perform like this machine, i believe. 21 years old it just works every time...

But you are selling it??????

it almost seems with each year more and more machines seem to flood the market making it a lot harder to sell a older machine. also seems like a lot more idiots out there asking how old machines are like it really effects what shape it is in or how it performs.

What you need is to build another shed for storage. If you have enough space that you can justify a Kubota, you gotta have enough room for an extra outbuilding. Maybe build one close to the house so you can get at the Toro and clear a path to get to the Kubota!

Work fascinates me.

The kubota has a 50" 2 stage blower, in the interest of not overlapping, I want to minimize accumulation of "stuff"

There is good news though, thanks to you guys I talked my sister into giving her crapzman away and adopting the PowerShift! so it gets to stay in the family after all. Im glad you guys talked me out of going through the hassle of trying to sell it, you saved me a lot of headaches and now my sister has a nice machine.
