Has anyone ever used a TMC string trimmer?

I've gone searching deep into all the old threads and have found very little mentioned about them.
One guy referred to a Maruyama trimmer as a "poor man's TMC." I found that interesting.

I purchased a used 28cc.TMC string trimmer about 6 months ago from CL for a backup and it's been great.Plenty of power,light weight and quite.My unit came with a kawasaki engine starts with 3 pulls when cold and fires right up with one pull when warm. Also forgot to mention that it's probably around 10 years old at the least.

I just went to their web site for chits and jiggles. A 1.2 hp trimmer at 13lbs, well no thank you and their smaller one is less than 1hp at almost 13lbs, well heck no. And also the fact that I have never heard of any dealers or even seeing one, well three strikes and I am out.

they have had a small booth up at expo the last couple of times. why bother? there are plenty of good brands of equipment out there to take the risk with a small no-name company.
