I have a Stihl backpack and trimmer and purchased them new. Yes they are more expensive, but both have lifetime warranty on the ignition, the trimmer has a lifetime warranty on the shaft (which is solid, not hollow) and the clutch assembly. I would spend the extra money, it will be worth it in the long run. You can buy cheaper products that will last half the life or buy it once and use it for a long time. The only piece I bought used was a Gravely WB 48" Hydro with only 18 hours on it. It was still NEW. To be dependable in your business, you need dependable equipment.
