    Anyone have any experience with them? What do they typically run brand new?

    We have 4 of them, all with Honda engines, cost around $6,000.00. They work well, but maintenance is crucial. The spray from the road is worse for the engine than all the salt you will put through it. Take the time to wash & grease them.

    I just picked up an 8' mild steel with a Techumsa motor for $3600 installed. We'll find out more about them when we start using it this winter.
