    The blower setup is about $8500 just by itself. There's probably that much more and a little in parts and machine labor, the rest would be assembly. Flatties get up there in a hurry at that rate. Eyeball costs!!

    It's much easier to promise someone a "free" ride on the wagon than to urge them to pull it.
