    Echo backpack blower won't turn OFF

    As some of you know, I got an Echo PB-770T last summer. It performed flawlessly last fall, but as winter approached it started to not want to turn OFF. At the beginning it was just that it sputtered for a few seconds when you pressed the kill switch and then turned off, but as the weeks...

    Won't be long

    It's been in the 70+ all week....80 degrees the past 2 days. It won't be long until I'm back out mowing. The past 3 years I've started between March 25th and April 15th depending on how the weather has been. Looks like this year will be one of the earlier ones. Spent the day today...

    Finally some snow?

    Let me start this off my saying I am fine if it doesn't snow this whole winter. But hearing talk about this first snow still gets me excited to do some snowblowing. This winter has been extremely weird. It was the warmest December on RECORD, and our first snow didn't come until mid-January! They...

    One last way of making money this mowing season

    Well now that the mowing season is over, I am enjoying the relaxation. Snow is not in the forecast yet, but it was in the 60's the past 2 days. Weird!! Colder weather is coming the end of this week. But before then, I am going to be getting a bit more money. The municipal leaf trucks have made...

    Put everything away for the season (with pictures)

    I am officially done for the season. I spent the morning yesterday prepping my mowers for winter, cleaning them, running them out of gas, taking things off my trailer, putting new oil in my snowblower, etc. Now the snowblower is ready for action, although I will be perfectly fine if it doesn't...

    Season is Winding Down

    Finished the majority of my lawns' last cut of the year. Have a few jobs that I wasn't able to get done today that I have to do tomorrow, but then my season is over. The rest of tomorrow will be spent winterizing my equipment and rotating the equipment around in the garage.

    HRX217HYA K4 vs K5

    Essentially there are no differences. None that matter in my opinion. I have the K3 and the K5, and the only differences I notice are that the red engine cover is a slightly different shape, they went with a black pull rope instead of white, and the exhaust cover differs slightly. I don't know...

    Already thinking about leaf cleanup

    A photo showing a small part of my biggest leaf job. Today it had the most leaves so far this fall, and I got the time down to 2.5 hours total. I figured out more efficient patterns now that it's my 3rd week on the property. Also a photo of a leaf job where the municipality doesn't take leaves...

    Season is Winding Down

    Looks like the season is coming to an end. Most of my lawns I have on the schedule for this week, and then I am doing them again mid-month, and then one final time after Thanksgiving Day and the end of the month. Of course some lawns I will be done before that, but the majority I continue until...

    Ways to hang line trimmers from shop wall

    I use these wall racks that are meant to hold shovels, rakes, etc., to hold my string trimmers. I didn't buy this brand of them, but it is the exact same design. I also attached a photo below. They work great! Here is the item: Shop Blue Hawk Metal Flip-Up Tool Holder at My garage:

    Already thinking about leaf cleanup

    Yeah that's a good idea. It seems like every day in the fall it's windy, and you have to blow the leaves against the wind, and they blow back at you. It would help to do as you suggested in that case. Here is a before/after photo of a job I did yesterday. Not a lot of leaves, but 99% of the...
