query universe re: pricing.

I bought a weed whacker from harbor freight. It was $79 refurb ryobi. It's great, I like it. 26cc, 4cycle, 12.5 pounds, 7800rpm.

So I go to check on the rest of my order and on the front page is another Ryobi refurbished weedwhacker. This one is 31cc, 4cycle, 9.5 pounds, 7000rpm for $49.

So I compare closer, and it turns out that the cheaper one has a fixed head while the one I got has a removable head so you can attach brush-trimmers, edgers, or whatever else they get high demand for.

So is it worth the effort to try to return the one I have for the $30 diff, or should I be happy I made the pricing mistake and enjoy the fact that I can put other attachments on it, even if I don't use them.

(Though i did imagine interfacing with the drive shaft as the feed for a go-kart, and I also have horrible visions of a certian item from Naked Gun 33 1/3.).

Even in writing about it, I SUPPOSE the $30 extra is worth it, should I actually end up getting any additional attachments. It's just, the only attachment I can think of that I could use would be an edger, but I got the thicker, permanent line to install in place of the feed line so I could use it as an edger.
