    Last Weekend, at a garage sale, I saw two Stihl tools. One was a power blower. The other was the KM 55R combi power head with edger and weedeater attachments. I asked if they worked. She said yes. I asked how much. She said "$25 each." Yes, that is 'twenty five dollars' each.
    They both fired up on the first pull and ran nice and smoothly. Obviously the lady didn't really know what she had. I felt bad paying only $50 for everything. So, I told her I'd give her $100 if she would throw in the package of string trimmer refill. She looked at me as if I had lost my mind but agreed.

    Score! I have no use for the string trimmer and edger attachments but hope to sell them on eBay and pick up a chain saw/ pole pruner attachment.

    Pretty good deal, eh? (We don't really say "eh" in Texas.)

    C, eh

    N, eh

    D, eh!
