Finally pulled the trigger.  Echo PAS 280 with power paddle and trimmer head. Plus few other things.

Thanks to @Nathaniel Vansickle

Had a great visit and talk at your shop  8).  Just wish I could have brought  home some other things I saw there.  :'(   
Might have to sell all big poulan series saws and parts off for that new toy.  :P  See what happens.

That was an impressive visit. I enjoyed being there. Picked up a couple items I had been thinking about and he had them in stock.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".

nice meeting the both of you. Thankfully was a slow day.

Keep us posted on how the powerbroom works. I am curious because we run into the same issue plowing up at my cousins car lot....may be something i need to look into getting to rent out when we move to the new building and have room for that kind of stuff

Just put together and followed instructions on how to break the paddles in on a rough surface first.  Like sidewalk or asphalt. I used ole concrete pad.

Then just tested in the  gravel left by the ole garage. Took it right to a bare area quickly.  Throwing it several feet in front  :o.

It was like 25 degrees so the test on the gravel in the grass will have to wait. 

I really really hated leaving that saw I had my eye on there.   :'(  momma would have kicked my azz.  ;) :D

Nate another thing that impressed me. It is not often you talk to a shop owner dealer and they actually know what they are talking about.   8) 8) 8)
You impressed the heck out of me with your knowledge and sharing of info I never even knew before.

I learned stuff yesterday and that makes for a great day in itself.

Thank you

Kevin

Today after firing the grill up I was dying to know.  I took the new toy down the gravel drive on the grass areas. About 300' worth.
I was like holy chit man. I am kicking myself in the azz for not buying one of these years back.
It was pulling old buried gravel out of the dirt and tossing them back on the driveway. I found if you go straight on it would throw them 8'-10' across the drive. So found going at a angle way better. 
Highly impressed @Nathaniel Vansickle  with the way this ope pulls the gravel out of the grass and embedded in dirt. 

I would say yes to having some as rentals when you get set up in your new shop. ;)

couple pics = all ;D 's

Holy crap she is getting stronger with break in. Had to use my leg against the handle side to keep it from pushing me back as I was removing the gravel from the grass.

@Nathaniel Vansickle  do you know which one of these braces I would need?

Nate does this just replace the existing bottom part of my handle already on it? 
If so I just need to check to see if 2 bolt or 4 bolt to know.
