    Yup, Amazon prime is very fast.
    I have found also buying auto parts from Amazon Prime is cheaper than the auto parts stores and even online auto parts stores and most time will come the next day.

    I purchased a MT85 this year and it is definitely one of my best investments. It definitely replaces a couple of guys. I also like the fact that it fits through 36" gates. Now I do not have to bring my s650 out for the smaller jobs.

    They've been dying for some time but stabilized somewhat because of the good economy.

    The amazing part is the speed of Amazon's shipping. You order something today you get it tomorrow on in 2 days. The last two packages I've gotten, one came UPS the other one United States Postal Service the next day and placed orders in the afternoon.
    Amazon now has two hour grocery deliveries also for free with Amazon prime. I haven't tried that yet

    The Prime account is pretty cool also, one act per household, everyone can use it using different credit cards. You just hope everyone orders using their credit card and not yours, so far it's been working out.
    I've had so many packages shipped Prime and save so much money.

    Amazon can deliver so fast because they have warehouses all over the place. At least 3 within 40 miles of my house (that I know of) and a shopping center is going to be torn down about 15 miles from me for yet another one.

    I can get some stuff same day!

    amazon is doing everything they can to crush any and every market.

    eta: I want to rail on them for that, but when you just wasted 30 minutes going to/from home depot for a $5 compressor drain valve that they had on the shelf 2 years ago but don't now, but you can order it for in store delivery 7-10 days from now, it really makes it hard to ***** about amazon being evil.

    I've got a plow on the ditchwitch, but it's mainly a backup sidewalk machine so we haven't worked it much in the snow. In limited use, it gets the job done but not ideal

    A friend of mine has a blower on his ditch witch and loves it, uses it for tight driveways and blowing back piles.

    Saturday not looking great for anyone, might see a couple inches here then rain. Wish it would just slide south.
