    Re: Keep It Easy Questions

    Re: Best mower 2020??

    I got my dealer to install the kit. I'd get them to up the revs first and see if that"s fast enough. Another bloke here did only that and he's happy with the speed.

    Re: Echo PB-2520

    Echo were the machine to have earlier on. Heavy by comparison to others now but they ( whippersnippers) were well balanced machines that hid the weight well.
