Not sure if anyone else posted about the Troy FLEX but thought I would . Not sure how well it will sell .   I saw one price of $399 for the power unit then the attachment about $299 up .   Funny ,,reading the ad  it says " The first of it's kind "    IDK about that lol

I would think a generator or even a welder Head with Gen would sell better than a leaf blower.

Kind of an interesting machine and made for the modern home owner market. I'm guessing it wouldn't stand up to hard use the way an older DB or Gravely system would. The price seems Ok to me although I'd like to see more than 7hp for snow blowing. Maybe they will follow this up with a larger model that's made for heavier use.

It appears they're trying to tap into DR's market.

Local Lowes had one. I spent about 2 minutes looking it over and some of the attachments. Lots of plastic and safeties. I think I would invest the money in an old gravely. You would have a nice one investing that much in one.
