    Looking at picking up a couple of these units this year:


    Just wondering if anyone has used them and what your thoughts are? I know it's a new model as of last year, but loos like they've beefed up a few components for commercial use. My only concern is it appears to be the same wheels and axle assembly as the standard model, and that has seemed to be a weak point for my older units. Anyone thats used them have any feedback as far as increased durability and power to justify the extra price tag?

    Me and a buddy still have one. Handy lil things. I literately had one fall off the back of my truck a few years ago. Went back over to where I had travled 30 mins later. GONE.

    Same with my old enclosed trailer. Door lock didn't work properly backpack blower fell out. I no longer own that trailer... Some guys pulled up beside me and said I lost something back there.. The prob took it. :mad:

    I like those models as well and have been looking for a used one for the last couple of years, but I recently put a bid out on 2 condo complexes with a lot of sidewalk work, and it has to get done and has to get done fast so I can't take a chance with something used/older and also need something thats gonna power through it.

    Used both the new toro's and the honda's. Honda's held up better. About the same price.

    In what ways did the Honda hold up better? Also, which models? Thanks.
