Eh. Could be anything from how you worded your inquiry, to what kind of day the person on the other end was having.

Sucks that you got the "go buy one" reply - I was preparing myself for that from the start, but so far, so good.




My package from Echo arrived today.

One black hat w/white Echo logo.
One grey t-shirt w/Echo logo on chest and huge logo on back.
Unfortunately it's an XL and I wear L. I'll wash the sucker in hot water and dry it for an hour on shrink-mode.

I am supprised that the dealer you go to does not give you a scag hat... I am not one to throw out hats as they are expensive but every customer that has mowers from me gets one or sometimes more to keep them looking nice if they wear it.

I would think they would give one to anyone who purchases..say something over $500 form them. In a way, it is advertising for them.

Like brand-loyal, a$$-kisser who wasn't blatantly asking for free stuff.





Sorry, but I decided not to post what I sent them.
I'd imagine that a flood of cookie cutter, copycat requests would be noticed and perhaps they'd be less apt to send stuff to people.

I think he is being passed around between Echo ,Toro , Sears , and the vet ,and is probably now wishing he was born smarter instead of just handsome !

Here are the hats I got last year.

The freebie from the open house is on the right. The dark brown one is one of the two that Toro sent me after I inquired about purchasing a hat.

I like the brown from last year better, but beggars can't be choosers.

I went to a Toro convention last year, by accident.

I was going to get something fixed, and they had pizza, hats, special promotions going on.

I had a slice of pizza, took 4 hats and a couple of key chains.

Can't find any of that stuff for the life of me now... Probably under the seats of the truck LOL.

Oh well, the hats were black and uncomfortable anyway. Now if only they made socks....
